Modified on Fri, 05 May 2023 at 03:41 AM

The Screen Sharing content block is used to present your desktop view from one of your monitors, or a specific application window, to your audience.

Adding a Screen Sharing Block to the Storyboard

To add a Screen Sharing Content Block to your Storyboard, click the "+" Card in the Storyboard, select the Screen Sharing item, then click Next.

Assigning a Presenter to Screen Share

From here, you will select the Presenter who will be sharing their screen with the audience:

In order to show in this list, the Presenter user must have been given Screen Sharing rights during Event Setup. If they do not show here, return to the Webinar Event Card and check your settings.
Only one Presenter may use a Screen Sharing block at one time. To set up multiple Screen Sharing sections, add separate Screen Sharing blocks for each Presenter.

Additional Options

On the final screen, you can set a time to display at the bottom of the screen to show the Organizers and Presenters.

When complete, click the Add to Storyboard button to return to the main Storyboard screen:

Using Screen Sharing

  2. After choosing your content, click the Share button to return to your Storyboard.
