Make existing webex space public

Currently we have the option to make a Public Webex Space to Private. We would find it very convenient to have the option to make an existing webex space to Public. We believe having the both options would be beneficial for everyone.

    @Cisco, please make this option possible soon. Frequently our users ask if we can make a Webex space from privat to public.

    Why is this not a feature in the app? Why can't I create a public space and put it to private, but not make it public again?

    It's possible for Comliance officers to convert existing private spaces to public. The space must be unmoderated and not part of a team.

    Any space participant or compliance officer can convert a space from public to private. Only a compliance officer can convert a space from private to public and only if the space is classified with the lowest category (usually public), and the space has a description. To remove a description please use a space character by itself.

    As others have stated not having this option is a major problem for organizations that already have a number of existing spaces created before the public option was available and causes a reliance on bots for space management.

    Definitely both options have the right to exist. But you need to analyze in more detail to make decisions. After all, the wrong decision can create difficulties for many in their work.

    This is just a no brainer to me. I can't even revert a public space that was made private back to public. This should have been implemented in the first place.

    i couldn't believe this wasn't possible. I searched for 15 minutes in the app until I realized it just was not possible.


    Especially since this is a new feature, we have been waiting for for a long time, we do not want to delete and re-create all our existing spaces just to be able to make them public.
