Update WorkSmart Webcam Photo Capturing


As a Team Room Owner, you can enable or disable webcam photo capturing by WorkSmart for any contractor working under the team. This change is not applied retroactively to organizations that do not have the webcam turned on and does not affect any policies that are currently in place regarding webcam usage within your organization.

As a Manager, if you need to have the webcam enabled or disabled, you will need to contact the Team Room owner.
