    Wow. Lots of great info.

     

    I wish there were video tutorials for this dimension and also live call support to help through this process.

     

    Reading and doing it on my own isn't my preferred learning style.

     

    I will give it a shot today and again on Monday before trying it live with 22 people on a call.

    Such a pity there is no video option without this screen share future. Life video is something that it is definitely missing here :-(

    What I'm having trouble understanding is this: If I share my screen with the participants, showing them some slides or PowerPoint screens... how can I also run the call? I won't be able to see the call dashboard, right?

    I have a Mac.

    Hi Ann, excellent question, and I know you're not alone in asking it.  I agree, it's challenging to do this on your own, so if possible, I'd recommend you have two - either two people, two computers, or two monitors.  One person/computer/monitor shows the screenshare, and the other runs the interface.  That's simplest.

    If you just have one person, computer, and monitor, and you don't want to show the interface, I would recommend getting very familiar with the Pause button on the screenshare interface.  That will freeze what your participants are seeing while you do something else.  For example, you can press pause while participants are viewing your Powerpoint, and then you can operate the interface without people seeing it.

    I just tried to use MCScreenshare with a participant and it kept going to an older meeting with a different screenshare password. When he tried to change it, it would not accept the new password.

    Is there a way for one person to do the presentation and the assistant or other presenter actually run the call?  I can't seem to get it to work where my colleague in another location can use her screen to do the presentation but so I can handle the questions coming in and/or mute folks.  Please help!

    Yes, definitely.  It's probably easiest to do it the way you want: one person running the interface, the other running the screenshare.  How to do it is for both people to log into the account, pull up the same conference page.  Then one person clicks "Conduct Now" to launch the conductor's interface, and the other person scrolls down to the Screenshare tab and launches screenshare there.  You can get quick, customized support by calling 877-414-1515 or e-mailing support@maestroconference.com.
