File Sharing allows you to instantly send and receive documents during a conference call.
You can share a file from within your online meeting room by:
- Opening the Text Chat in your call window on the right side of the page
- Select the menu icon at the bottom right corner for more options, then the paperclip icon to upload a file from your computer.
You can also simply drag and drop a file into the Online Meeting Room to share with all participants.
Once you share the document in the chat bar, you and/or your participants can present the document instead of downloading it. This is a great alternative to screen sharing for PowerPoint presentations.
To present a shared document:
- Click Present under the file in the Text Chat
- Use the right and left arrows on screen to navigate the pages of the document
- Click Stop Presenting to end the presentation
Note that files shared in this way can be presented by any participant present in your online meeting. This is why we recommend this option for smaller groups and suggest screen sharing for presentations with a larger audience.
