Step 5

Once you’re in the event, you’ll be seated at the main table.  As you can see from the image below, there are several useful features:

  • Share video (not available for Internet Explorer or Safari)
  • Share links
  • Edit the collaborative notes
  • Share your screen (firefox only)
  • Jump to a different breakout table to use the same set of tools with a different group of people

As the creator of this event, you have several additional capabilities:

  • mute/unmute all
  • mute/unmute one person
  • label the breakout tables
  • send notifications to everyone at all breakout tables
  • see the notes for all breakout tables at once
