Frequently asked questions — features & functionality

 
Q: Will the Cisco Webex Board function without a Webex Teams service subscription?
A: Yes, the board will function without a Cisco Webex Teams subscription, but only for local presentations using an HDMI connection. Features such as cross-device functionality, persistent content storage and remote collaboration are not possible without a subscription.
 
Q: Does this product come with a smart whiteboard pen?
A: Yes, a whiteboard pen is included with the Cisco Webex Board.
 
Q: Does the Webex Board have a remote?
A: No, a remote isn’t needed with this product. The Webex Board leverages the touch-screen capabilities of the board itself for both drawing and navigation.
 
Q: Can all participants in a meeting draw on the Cisco Webex Board, even if they’re collaborating remotely?
A: All participants using the Cisco Webex Teams app can draw and make notes during shared presentations, video calls and meetings. When you draw on your Webex Board, remote participants will see your markup and be able to respond via their own Webex Board or Cisco Webex Teams app.
 
Q: Can I access my Cisco Webex account on any Webex Board or just on those in my network?
A: You can access your account from any Cisco Webex Board in the world, no configuration required. You can walk up to any Webex Board and start sharing, even if the board isn’t owned by you or your company.
 

Frequently asked questions — setup & maintenance

 
Q: Is it easy to set up a Cisco Webex Board?
A: Setup is simple. Before you start, register and create a 16-digit code for your new Webex Board in the Cisco Webex Control Hub. From there, simply mount your Webex Board to a wall (the mount is included), plug in the Ethernet and power cords, and follow the setup instructions on the screen.
 
Q: Do I need to install any software or updates to my Cisco Webex Board?
A: No. Your Cisco Webex Board comes with all necessary software pre-installed, and updates are installed automatically.
 
Q: Does the Cisco Webex Board require external microphones for use in a conference room?
A: No. Each Cisco Webex Board has powerful microphone arrays around the framework of the screen. The built-in microphones feature voice-tracking technology, which focuses in on whomever is speaking, even in large rooms.
 
Q: What should I use to clean the Webex Board screen?
A: You can clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth (one is included) or any alcohol-based screen wipe. If you need to disinfect your Webex Board, use isopropyl alcohol. Avoid regular cleaning products, such as multipurpose sprays and wipes, as they could dissolve the protective coating on the screen. These boards are meant for regular office use and are not intended for use in sterile environments.
 
Q: How do I reset my Cisco Webex Board to factory settings?
A: Keep in mind that resetting your Webex Board to factory settings will permanently delete all of your data and settings. Near the USB inputs, press and hold the button inside the pinhole recess for a couple of seconds. The recovery menu will appear. Select Factory reset. You won’t see a confirmation message after selecting Factory reset, but your board will reset to its factory default settings. You’ll need to register your Webex Board again with a new activation code.
