With the launch of our new cloud service and video conferencing solutions, the Lifesize Admin Console is being redesigned to improve the experience of setting up and managing Lifesize accounts for administrators and super-users.


Lifesize will allow admins to preview the new Admin Console beginning Friday, February 22.


Accessing the new Admin Console

Once the preview is available, a banner will display at the top of the screen in the current Admin Console. Admins will then be able to navigate to the new version using the Preview Now button.

Admins may navigate back using the designated button in the menu of the new Admin Console.

Feature Availability

It is important to note that select features and areas present in the current Admin Console may not be available in the new version during the preview. However, these features and areas will remain accessible in the current Admin Console through the preview and will be available upon launch in the new version (excluding items in the list of Notable Removals below).


Version Compatibility
The current Admin Console and the new version are fully compatible, so admin actions in either will be reflected in both during the preview (ex. a meeting created in the new Admin Console will be visible in the current Admin Console, and vice versa).
