Using Collaborative Slides

Collaborative slides are Live Meeting slides that help you collaborate with other attendees. Unlike PowerPoint presentations, collaborative slides do not need to be imported or created in advance. You can insert collaborative slides spontaneously during a meeting, to help capture a certain idea or brainstorm with other attendees.

The following five collaborative slide types are available:

  • Whiteboard. A Whiteboard is a blank image slide upon which you can draw, add text and stamps, and highlight information, by using the annotation tools. For example, if you want to quickly create a flow chart to illustrate a point, insert a Whiteboard slide and then use the annotation tools to draw squares, lines, and so on.

  • Web Page. A Web page lets you display a Web page to meeting participants and provides each participant with an independent connection to that URL, allowing them to navigate the site freely. Web page is ideal for allowing attendees to complete a survey or form during your meeting.

  • Text Page. A Text page is a blank, editable slide upon which you or anyone in the meeting who has permission can type. For example, if you want to type new information that is available to the audience to copy and paste, such as an action items list, you can create a Text slide. When you create and work with a Text slide, you can use the Edit menu commands to copy, paste, cut, and delete text.

  • Polling Page. Use Polling pages to find out meeting participants' reactions and opinions during a presentation. Polling pages are a great way to solicit feedback from participants by allowing them to select from several responses to a question. You can create Polling slides ahead of time or insert them as needed during your presentation.

  • Screen Snapshot. A Screen Snapshot slide shows a captured screen shot from your computer, such as a screen shot of a spreadsheet or graphic. After you create a Snapshot slide, you can use the annotation tools to add annotations to it.

To add a collaborative slide as a new resource

  • In the meeting client, click the Content pane, click Share, and click the type of slide you want to add: Whiteboard, Poll, Text, Web, or Screen Snapshot.

The slide is added as new content in the Content pane, and you can begin using it to collaborate with the other attendees.

To insert a collaborative slide into an existing presentation

  1. In the meeting client, click the Content pane, click the presentation into which you want to add a collaborative slide, and then click Thumbnails.

  2. In the Thumbnails pane, right-click the thumbnail directly above the point where you want to insert the slide. Point to Insert New Slide, and then click the type of slide you want to add: Whiteboard, Poll, Text, Web, or Screen Snapshot.

The slide is added below the insertion point you specified in the existing resource.
