Webex Desk Device - allow permanent display of the PC screen - automatic restore of the preview of the PC screen for incoming and outgoing calls

To support fluid work, some customers would like the Webex Desk Device to always be able to display the notebook's second screen (Window: Expand Display) on the screen connected to the Desk Device without the user having to press the preview button.

This feature should also be able to be turned on and off in the device settings. If possible, an extended function of this feature could allow to define what should happen when the remote user starts to share his screen.

Especially if the device is used as a replacement for a phone on UC Manager and is controlled via Jabber, this feature is very important as it makes no sense to display nothing on the screen when the user receives an incoming PSTN call without video.

If integrating this feature into RoomOS is too difficult, a custom macro could also help, e.g. as an example posted in

Currently, a customer is looking into replacing the existing 88xx phones at all workstations with the Webex Desk Hub
