Hi,

As the Presenter (and Host), when sharing a whiteboard on Zoom, how do I have participants follow me to where I am on the whiteboard?

thanks

Hi @Joanb !

 1. Start a meeting or webinar from the Zoom desktop client. 

 2. On the in-meeting controls, click the Whiteboard button. 

 3. Click New Whiteboard.

 4. Click the arrow next to All Participants can edit to choose what permissions you would like participants to have

 5. Click Open and Collaborate. The whiteboard will open in your meeting window. 

 6. When you are done, click Close Whiteboard at the top of the screen.

 

For reference: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/4410916881421-Getting-started-with-Zoom-Whiteboard#h_01G02...

 

Hope this helps!

 

Dear Bri, sadly that is not what Joanb is asking at all.

 

This is pretty basic functionality in mainstream whiteboard platforms. You tell/ask participants to follow your pointer as a facilitator.

 

I guess Zoom Whiteboard lacks this feature too.
