Bot by Cisco Systems
Quickly pivot your conversations from legacy email to a more collaborative environment within Webex Teams. The email2teams Bot will take all the participants in an email thread and migrate the conversation to Webex Teams!

Interact with email2teams via email & the Bot takes care of the rest! To use email2teams:

  1. Find the email thread with the participants you'd like to move to a new Webex Teams space.
  2. Reply-all to the email thread; in the BCC line, add "bot@email2teams.com" (the 'To' & 'CC' fields won't work).
  3. The Bot receives your email, creates a Teams space with the 'Subject' as the title, then leaves. Anyone not already signed up for Teams receives an email invitation; once registered, they're automatically added to the space.

Note: As mentioned in #3, this is a great way to invite new users to Webex Teams, however we advise you avoid using distribution lists, which could result in unintended & unhappy recipients.

You can also add people to an existing Teams space by including the space's roomId between square brackets in the 'Subject' line (example in screenshots), but only if email2teams is in the space.
