3) Configuring Quicklaunch Settings for a Webex Meet Now

You'll need Webex Productivity Tools installed for a Webex Meet Now. 


If it's not already installed on your computer, log in to your online Webex Account. Go to: Support Center > Support > Downloads. Select "Download Windows PT"


Save and Run the .msi file




After installation is complete, start Quicklaunch and enter settings. In License, ensure your Feature Key has been entered. If not, refer to the steps above.



Once your Feature Key has been entered, go to Calendar > Meet Now and select Webex Productivity Tools from the Meet Now Provider drop-down list


Next, add a Meet Now Action Tile to an Action Group. Ensure you select the generic Meet Now from Collaboration.


Within the Action Tile you just added. Change the Meeting Provider to Webex Productivity Tools.


Ensure your Webex login credentials are entered in the Webex meetings tab. Finally, save your settings.



Test the newly added Meet Now Action Tile. Webex Productivity Tools will open, login with the provided credentials, and start a meeting.
