How will my endpoint layout controls behave when used with Cisco Meeting Server and managed by Cisco Meeting Management?

This FAQ describes some of the layout behaviors for a variety of endpoint types when used with Meeting Server and managed by Meeting Management.

Points to note:

  • This FAQ is intended to show examples of the types of behavior a user may see, particularly behaviors that may differ from an expected flow. 
  • The administrator controls Meeting Server behavior from Meeting Management. Meeting Management itself does not determine behavior.
  • Behavior described here may change in the future as products evolve.
  • It may take up to 15 seconds for Meeting Management to update to correctly reflect mute and layout status from an endpoint (where this is available to Meeting Management).
  • Meeting Management's meeting-wide layout control only affects those participants currently in the meeting. It does not change the meeting default so will not be applied to new participants joining the meeting.
  • Some layouts (for example on IX5000, TX9000, Cisco Meeting App or multiscreen endpoints) will differ to those layouts available on Meeting Server. 
  • If an endpoint is using a layout that does not exist in Meeting Management, then layouts are visible in the participant details view, but none selected.
  • Refer also to the Meeting Server and Meeting Management Interoperability Databases posted to https://tp-tools-web01.cisco.com/start.
