Webex Suite: Maximize Productivity and Teamwork with Webex Messaging

In my last blog, I shared 5 ways to have more effective and productive meetings, but what happens after the meeting ends? That is when real collaboration and teamwork starts to get the project across the finish line. No matter if you are working from the office with your colleagues or collaborating remotely at home or on the go, a single messaging application where you can easily chat and communicate with individuals or in groups is a must-have in today’s hybrid work.

Webex Messaging connects individuals and teams instantly from inside and outside the organization, regardless of the time, device, and location. With AI-powered innovations and premier features such as file sharing, co-creation, and video messaging, Webex enables users to seamlessly connect, collaborate, engage, and get work done.

With Webex Messaging, you can keep in touch with your colleagues, customers, and partners 1:1 or in groups before, during, and after the meeting to keep the conversation and work moving forward. After the meeting ends, you can easily access the summary of the meeting within the space including the conversation highlights, action items, key decisions, and even questions that were addressed, so you never have to worry about missing an important update.

Webex also integrates seamlessly with the most popular third-party apps so you can collaborate in real time without having to switch applications. Let’s dive more into how you can leverage Webex Messaging to increase your productivity and teamwork.

Real-time conversations, anywhere, anytime

Managing and coordinating different time zones and schedules can be a challenge when working with a global and distributed workforce. With Webex, you no longer have to wait till the next scheduled meeting to have real conversations. Chat instantly with your colleagues, answer questions quickly, share files, and keep projects moving forward while you’re in the office, at home, or on the go using your laptop or mobile device.

And when text isn’t sufficient, turn your thoughts into captivating video messages and share them directly within the space, making it easier for others to understand your point of view. With Video Messaging (by Vidcast) now directly accessible in Webex, you can easily record and share video messages and keep the ball moving forward, without blocking time.

Sharing and collaborating on files is easy

We’ve all had experiences with sharing large files via email, only to see the failed delivery notification for exceeding the allowed file size. No more struggles with file sizes and attachments with Webex. You can easily drag and drop files, share screenshots with one click, and even co-edit documents in real time. Share your box, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or Sharepoint Online files directly in the space so everyone can access the latest to collaborate on.

Also, you can quickly express, show, and capture ideas on a whiteboard, and co-create with anyone, anywhere.

Cisco AI Assistant for Webex keeps you productive

If you’re short on time and have a mountain of chat messages to catch up on, you can leverage the Cisco AI Assistant for Webex to summarize one or multiple chat threads within seconds, enabling you to quickly get caught up and respond more efficiently to requests.

The Cisco AI Assistant for Webex can also translate messages or help you quickly adjust the tone of your message before sending, to help you draft effective communications and overcome language barriers.

Stay focused and organized

With Webex, you can create organized workspaces for different teams, projects, or topics to find information easily, and never miss an important update. Edit, @ mention, forward, flag, pin, thread messages, create reminders and sections to save time, and stay on top of your work while ensuring communications always remain clear. You can also leverage gifs and emojis to express yourself in the conversation.

When you need time to focus and don’t want any incoming notifications to disturb you, simply enable Do Not Disturb (DND) on your Webex App. Once DND is enabled, the state is automatically synchronized to all your devices.

Once you’re done with work, you can set quiet hours, helping you avoid burnout and set boundaries for better work-life balance. You can also create a schedule to mute notifications during non-work hours.

Webex enables greater workplace productivity and efficiency by providing a unified collaboration experience for all users, inside and outside of your organization. With Webex Messaging, you can connect to all the tools and people in one single place and collaborate seamlessly via an easy and intuitive user experience, packed with AI-powered innovations and premier features accessible anywhere, anytime.
