BlueJeans for Workplace Overview

BlueJeans for Workplace provides businesses of all sizes with a self-service, professional-grade video platform to bring people together, create collaborative experiences, and broadcast them over Workplace by Facebook. With BlueJeans for Workplace, users can now broadcast meetings and company-wide events on the company News Feed or directly to project, team, or multi-company groups.

To enable Workplace with your BlueJeans service:

  • Admins: BlueJeans Admins can enable users for this integration through the Manage Features tab from the Admin Console, then, can disable individual user accounts from the Manage Users tab.
    • Note for Admins: Users can only have one of the Facebook integrations enabled, Workplace or Facebook Live, not both.
  • Users: In order for you to use Workplace, your BlueJeans admin must enable this feature.  If it is enabled, you should see the "Start Broadcast" button on your meeting control panel.
