For every event, there is one centralized main document which can be used by the participants to work collaboratively. The Text Editor feature allows all the participants in the main room or in breakout rooms to collaboratively edit a document shared with the entire call at the same time.
When the host switches the view to Text Editor, it will ask him to authenticate the Meeting's access to his account in Google Docs to create and/or update the documents in his own Google drive. All these will be available for viewing and sharing after the event.
Text Editor Main
This allows all participants in the Main room who are logged in to Meeting to contribute to the document once the host enables this view.
Text Editor Breakout
This gives breakout rooms their own collaborative documents to work on. They will only be able to access the ones that are in their own room.
