CenturyLink Workplace is a collaboration tool that bundles audio, web, and video into one, easy-to-use experience. Whether you need to meet one on one or with your whole team, this high-quality meeting tool allows you to connect with colleagues and customers when you need to.
To join a meeting, open a supported browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer) and enter the host’s meeting URL. If your host sent you and invitation, click the Connect Me button or the meeting link. To learn more about joining a CenturyLink Workplace meeting, download the guest guide.
Webcam. The meeting room now supports up to 16 webcams on stage at one time. When someone is sharing, webcams are displayed as a filmstrip across the stage; click the arrows to scroll and see everyone's webcam streams. If you run into issues with webcams, let us know the details using the end of meeting feedback.
Whiteboard. We've made some usability improvements to the whiteboard:
Now, you can add content directly inside a shape. Previously, you had to draw or add text outside the shape, and then drag the element over the shape.
Editing the whiteboard. Hosts and promoted guests can delete or move any element on the whiteboard. Other guests can only delete or move their own edits.
Pen. When you draw freehand and release the mouse button, the drawing element is no longer automatically selected.
Desktop app updates:
Mac. The installer window now remains in the background when the desktop automatically installs the latest version.
We've updated VoIP audio so you can continue to have a great audio experience.
Improved the consistency of the meeting room automatically connecting you to your cellular network until the WiFi connection recovers.
If you answer an incoming call during a meeting, the meeting audio now plays over the output you used before, when you return. For example, if you were listening over speakerphone and took a call, meeting audio returns to playing over speakerphone when you end the call.
Audio bug fixes to fix crashing and freezing in the mobile app.

June 25, release 6.22: iOS updates
Scheduling a meeting is now available. On the Meetings tab, tap More > Schedule a meeting to create a new event. Your meeting URL is set as the location and the connection details are included in the body of the invitation.
Set the name, date, and time for the meeting and add people to invite.
When ready, tap Add to add it to your calendar and send invitations to your guests. The invitation includes a calendar file attachment that your guests can open in most calendar apps. (Note: The app can only use calendars belonging to accounts added to your device via Settings > Passwords & Accounts. It cannot use calendars from 3rd party calendar apps to create invitations.)
Bug fix. Audio. If you switched to answering an incoming call during a meeting, when you came back, meeting audio didn't play over the output you used before. For example, if you were listening over speakerphone and took a call, meeting audio wasn't played over speakerphone when you returned.
Bug fix. Recorded meetings. When navigating to the recorded meetings list, an unexpected error appeared if no network was available or the network disconnected before the list loaded.
Bug fix. iPad. The meeting controls were missing after tapping when viewing a shared screen in fullscreen mode.
Bug fix. Screen share. If the host dismissed the person sharing their screen, screen sharing didn't stop immediately. (Note: File sharing is different; shared files stay active even if the host dismisses the original sharer.)
Fixed a reported app crash.
June 24, release 6.30: Meeting room updates
The new interactive whiteboard lets you collaborate in real time with everyone in the room. To open a whiteboard, on the meeting controls click the Share button, and then select Whiteboard. Anyone can open a whiteboard and contribute.
Jot down ideas, type or draw with a pen, add shapes, and add a background image.
Download a copy of the whiteboard as an image file to save and share.
In your meeting room, you can limit who can write on the whiteboard to only yourself and promoted guests. Everyone in the room will be able to see the whiteboard and follow along. Above the meeting stage, click the Security button and then toggle the Restrict sharing option to On. (Note: This restricts all sharing - whiteboard, screen share, and file presentation. Everyone in the room can see what's being shared, but only the host and promoted guests can share.)
Bug fix. Meeting controls. When webcam was on, if you pointed to the Webcam button the tooltip said, "Turn on my webcam."
June 19, release 6.7: Meeting Settings updates

Japanese. Audio Settings. Added translation for the copy all numbers to clipboard option.

Bug fix. Guests tab. When a dial-in guest left the meeting room but stayed connected to audio, their name was dropped instead of remaining as an audio-only guest.
Bug fix. Connect audio. When a large number of guests joined a meeting, the audio selection screen took longer to load.
Bug fix. Join a meeting. Sometimes signing in using your email address resulted in the app showing a blank white screen when using SSO.

Fixed reported app crash.
June 2, release 6.21: Android updates
