Hey Hal — it was good — overall, high marks.
I think for larger meetings, it might be better to use the “event” mode — just a different mode of operation (note: in event mode, the host can tell if the user is paying attention or not, actually reports if webex has the active focus or not).
With some more usage and developing good meeting discipline for webex meetings, it will prove very useful.
Might be work looking at the event mode of operation.
Any idea when/where the recording will be?
Looking forward to seeing this put into action!
Hey Robert – how was your experience on the receiving end of the online meeting?
