Pane 2: How To Use Presentations


Presentation Assets are added to the session from the Asset Library.

The accepted file types are:  .ppt, .pptx and .key

When adding a Presentation asset, the file uploads and is converted so that it display in a Jigsaw session. So, depending upon the file size and your bandwidth, upload and conversion times vary for each user.



Note: The tools shared below are available only to the Host and/or Co-Presenter except for the Resize which is available to all session attendees. 


Once the Presentation asset has been added to the session, it is immediately available in Pane 2 > Presentation.

An "Awaiting" status means the file is currently in the conversion process. As reminder, depending upon the file size and your bandwidth, upload and conversion times vary for each user. 

Once the file has converted and ready to open within the Jigsaw session, the "Ready For Use" status is displayed.



To open a file for viewing, simply select the name of the file and click the "Open" button.



Zoom/Fit controls are available to Host and Co-Presenter only. And, when used are only seen by that person.


Follow Me enlarges the pane for all users in the session. This tool is available to the Host and Co-Presenter only. Use this tool when you want to draw all attendee's attention to that area.



Resize allows anyone in the session to personally minimize or maximize the size of the pane being viewed.


Annotations - This is where the Host and/or Co-Presenter turns "on" or "off".

A laser pointer is available for the Host or Co-Presenter. Simply click to activate the laser and left click mouse and hold to use it.
