Mend & WebEx
Mend offers integration capability with your organization’s existing Webex account for group video visits.
***This feature is currently in beta testing. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for beta testing so we can ensure all updates are shared directly with your organization.
When enabled, all users connecting to a group video visit in your Mend portal will be routed into a Webex video conferencing session. You’ll have full use of all the tools you’re familiar with on that platform including breakout rooms, virtual backgrounds, whiteboards, and conference recording.
This integration requires setup on your organization’s side, so we recommend sharing the following steps with your in-house IT professional or team.
Note: The Webex integration is only available for group video connections at this time. If your organization does not currently host group video appointments in Mend and would like to, please reach out to email@example.com for more information about adding this feature.
Organizations that want to leverage Webex connectivity in Mend must have a Webex account, and the organization's Webex Admin must have a Mend account with Org Admin or Provider Admin permissions.
Org Settings Setup
Step 1: Org Settings
The Webex Admin for your organization will log in to Mend with an Org Admin or Provider Admin account, and click "Org Settings" in the Common Actions menu.
Step 2: Select and Authorize Vendor
Scroll to locate "Group Video Vendor Settings." Select Cisco Webex from the drop down.
Before this setting can be saved, you will need to click "Authorize."
Step 3: Log in to Webex
The Authorize button will open a pop-up where you will need to log in to Webex with an admin account.
Step 4: Accept Permissions
Once you are logged in, you will be prompted to accept permissions for Mend to create, manage, or cancel Webex meetings.
After clicking "Accept," you will see that your vendor selection has been authorized, and that the OAuth tokens have been securely stored in the Mend Database. Click Save to return to the Org Settings page.
Step 1: Edit Providers
Once Webex is set as the Group Video Vendor in Org Settings, each provider will need their Mend account associated with their Webex account.
Click "Providers" in the right-side menu to view the list of providers in your organization. For each provider that will be using the Webex integration, press "Actions" and "Edit" to locate the Webex Email Address Field.
The address provided here must match the email address the provider uses to log in to your organization's Webex account.
