To minimize noise disruptions on the WebEx while allowing maximum participation, a few tips:

  • When logging in to WebEx, please use this name convention: First Last (Company)
  • When connected to WebEx and using a phone for audio, please associate your phone to your name. There are two ways to do this:
    • Easiest: Use the "Call me" option for audio (enter your phone number; you’ll be called right away), then enter "1"
    • Use the "Call in" option and enter your assigned Attendee ID when prompted (you may have to scroll down to the bottom of the audio pop-up to see your Attendee ID)
  • To mute/unmute, hover over the bottom of the WebEx screen to activate the circle icons – mute is the mic on the far left
  • When speaking, please announce your name and company e.g. "Question from Joe with Electric Company"
