Schedule a Cisco Spark Meeting from a Space

If you want to meet with everyone in your space at a certain date and time, you can schedule a meeting. Cisco Spark helps you create calendar invites that you can send to everyone in the space to tell them about the meeting and how to join.

When it's time to meet, people can join from the meeting link, from within the Cisco Spark app, or from a standards-based video system. The number of people who can join meetings depends on how your subscriptions are set up.

Meeting scheduling is not available for conversations in your People list, or for spaces of more than 25 people.

 

Microsoft Outlook (Windows and Mac)

You can schedule a meeting in Microsoft Outlook using Cisco Spark for Windows or Mac.
  1. From your space, go to the activity menu , choose Meetings  , and select Create Meeting Invite. Cisco Spark opens a calendar invite in Microsoft Outlook. It adds the name of the space as the meeting subject, "@spark" in the Location field, email addresses for people in the space, and meeting information. The meeting information includes a link to join the meeting and a video address so people can join from any standards-based video system.
  2. Update the time and date, add information or attachments, and set recurrence options, if needed.
  3. Send the meeting invite.

Other Calendar (Windows and Mac)

For other calendars on Windows and Mac, you can copy meeting information and email addresses to schedule a meeting in your calendar.
  1. From your space, go to the activity menu  and choose Meetings  .

  3. Go back to your Cisco Spark app and the Schedule a Meeting panel.
  4. Next to People, select Copy and then go to your calendar and paste the email addresses in the To section of the meeting.
