What's New in Cisco Spark (UI, Meetings, Spark Board, and Whiteboard)

Out of Office: Let People Know When You're Away

Date: 2/15/2017

Cisco Spark displays your Out of Office updates when you set them on Microsoft Outlook. In Cisco Spark, people in your organization will be able to see your out of office status:
  • When they @mention you.
  • In your personal space title when they message you directly.
  • When they see your name in a spaces's People list.
  • In the results list when they search for your name.
The Out of Office updates are available if your calendar is integrated with Cisco Spark. If you're unsure about your setup, contact your administrator for help.

  • Search for people, messages, and files.

Enhanced Cisco Spark Meetings

Date: 1/24/2017

We’ve also enhanced Cisco Spark Meeting with improvements to video and content sharing. You can now also:

  • View meeting participants and mute from Cisco Spark on your Windows or Mac computer.

  • Mute and volume control of a Cisco Spark room device directly from the Cisco Spark app.

Cisco Spark Board: A Physical Extension to your Cisco Spark App

Date: 1/24/2017

The Spark Board is an all-in-one digital whiteboard, presentation screen and video conferencing tool. See it as a physical extension to your Cisco Spark app. When you are close to a Spark Board, your app automatically pairs with it, and you can open a space on the Spark Board to not only make calls or present content from your device, but also work with whiteboards and files directly in the space. All new files or whiteboards are automatically saved in the space you’re working in so you can take it with you when you leave the room. For more information, see the Cisco Spark Board Release Notes.


Whiteboard on Cisco Spark

Date: 1/24/2017

In addition to existing collaboration possibilities such as sharing files and sending messages, the new whiteboard activity gives you another way to work with your colleagues. You can quickly create visuals and share them in your spaces or with your team during a call. For more information, see Use the Whiteboard to Collaborate on Cisco Spark.
