What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Send and Receive Messages

Messages in Webex are where you chat with coworkers, exchanging content and ideas. You may send a message directly to a coworker or to a space you created. To send a message directly to a coworker:

  1. 1. Select a person from your spaces list.
  2. 2. Tap in the message area and then type your message. You can include files, add personality with emojis or animated GIFs, and also add formatting or markdown to make your messages stand out or be easier to read.
  3. 3. Tap the Send icon to send your message.
Note: Don’t worry if you’ve made a mistake and need to edit it or if you’ve pasted in the wrong space and need to delete the message entirely.

Receive and Organize Messages

When you get a new message, you're notified right away. You can also make it easy for yourself and others to follow a specific train of thought using threading, quotes, and even forwarding a message to someone else. You can also flag important messages so that you can refer back to them easily.

To do any of these, long press on the message you'd like to edit, forward, flag, etc., and your options appear.

Send a File

You can share most types of files, with the largest file size being 2 GB. You can also preview documents without downloading them first. Acceptable file types: : .doc, .docx, .gif, .jpeg, .pdf, .png, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, and .xlsx. To send a file:

  1. 1. Tap the Attachment icon.
  2. 2. This brings up your system dialog, where you can select and upload a file.
  3. 3. Once uploaded, press the Send icon to send a file.
