In our upcoming training sessions, we will have participants moved into breakout rooms. Once there, we would like them to have the ability to open a whiteboard (like using a flipchart) to gather their group discussions, and then have the ability to save and then share their whiteboards (like flipchart paper) with everyone once they return to the main room. Is this possible? and if so, how is this achieved?
In a meeting, under the security button, you have the option to allow participants to share screen and annotate over content. From what I've seen and tested, you need these options checked to allow people to share screen and annotate in a breakout room, and must have them checked before you send them into a breakout room: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360041848151-In-meeting-security-options
You could instead just allow co-hosts to share screen and participants to annotate instead of letting everyone annotate and share screen if there are any Zoombombing concerns.
I'm not sure if this needs to be on for everyone or just hosts/co-hosts, but your users might need to turn on annotations and whiteboard in their individual user settings as well: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/4409894568845-Enabling-or-disabling-annotation-tools-for-m...
As host you must allow users to save annotated content for the save option to appear for them.
Note that only the participant or host that started sharing the whiteboard has access to create and switch pages.
Somewhere a user should be able to find an option to save their annotation or whiteboard as either a PNG or PDF. From there once back in the main room, you can allow that person to share their screen, either via the Security button (again, this allows everyone in the meeting the ability to share their screen), or by letting those who saved the whiteboard be a co-host.
I have exactly the same issue...did you get it sorted? I'm OK with allowing them to use whiteboards in the breakout rooms but couldn't find a way of having them share this back in the main room.
At the very least, the host has to have the whiteboard option turned on, and have the option to allow to save selected as well. Not sure if all participants do or not, but host definitely would.
Or perhaps the person using the whiteboard in breakout room can take a screen shot and save that to their machine?
From there, I think you have a couple options for sharing content back in the main room:
All of this works if you have tech savvy people. My courses often bring together people who don't have these skills. If I cannot provide one whiteboard in the breakout rooms - in the way that the contents are preserved when I return to the main room then this functionality is not useful for me ...
