Office 2013 Support:

The following core features for PowerPoint file sharing with Office 2013 will be supported starting with release WBS 28.12.1.

  • Preload multiple documents prior to the meeting
  • Toggle sharing between several open documents
  • Annotation on shared slides
  • Move between pages

Please note that the following functionality will not be supported for Office 2013 PowerPoint files:

  • Animations and transitions
  • Embedded video or audio files
  • PowerPoint notes in a dedicated panel
  • UCF Toolkit

If you wish to share PowerPoint presentations that contain animations, transitions or embedded video, we recommend that you use Application Share or Desktop Share features instead of File Sharing when using Office 2013.

Office 2013 support for sharing Word and Excel documents is also included in this release. There are limitations for Windows 8 and we recommend that you use the desktop sharing or application sharing features instead of the file sharing feature to share file types that are not supported.



Update for Event Center Host Reassignment:

When reassigning events from one host to another, admins can now choose NOT to send email notification to the previous/new hosts by simply unchecking the send email notification check box.
