Viewing a document



I am running an assessment centre's/ interviews on Zoom. Within a breakout room I am required to share a document but I need the 'candidate' to be able to scroll up and down to view the doc during the prep time. The catch is that I can't send the document to the candidate.


Is this possible when sharing the screen?

Hi @MConnor 


Sharing your screen to all breakout rooms

Once breakout rooms are open, the host or co-host can share their screen from the main session directly into all open breakout rooms. This allows the presenter to share visual information to all breakout rooms at once, guiding them on the next steps or tasks. 

  1. Click Share Screen  in the meeting controls. 
  2. Enable the Share to breakout rooms option along the bottom of the share window. 
  3. Choose what you would like to share, including an entire screen, a specific open program, or others. 
  4. (Optional) Click the Share Sound option as well to include audio with the shared content.
    Note: This requires version 5.10.0 or higher to share audio with content to breakout rooms.  
  5. Click Share.
    The selected content will be shared to all breakout rooms. Any active shares in any breakout rooms will be interrupted for the host's/co-host's shared screen. Annotation or whiteboarding is saved before the host's shared content is viewed. 

You can also use the Video option, found under Advanced sharing tab, to share playback of a locally stored file, which will also share the audio. This also requires version 5.10.0 or higher. 



Hope this helps - Happy to help further!!
Thank you very much and have a great one!

Warm regards
