By default, the Group Whiteboard is locked for all users except the Host and Co-Presenter. When locked, the whiteboard tools will not appear for the attendees.

 

Attendee's view of Group Whiteboard

To allow collaboration on the whiteboard, the Host or Co-Presenter must unlock the Group Whiteboard. This option allows the Host and Co-Presenter the ability to "lock" and "unlock" the Group Whiteboard tools. When "unlocked", session attendees will be able to use these tools in pane 4's Group Whiteboard.

Unlock Group Whiteboard for everyone, under the Global Attendee Options.

Whiteboard Resize Tool

Allows the ability to resize the whiteboard so that you can obtain the resolution set by the Host when they created the session.

This means, depending upon the size of your Pane 4, you can increase or decrease the size of the Whiteboard canvas.

For example, if you bring the slider all the way to the left, the Whiteboard is reduced to the smallest size to "fit" within the actual size of your Pane 4. When this happens, you will most likely see gray around the edges.

 When you move the slider to the right, the Whiteboard size increases. If the actual size of your Pane 4 is smaller than the actual Whiteboard resolution, you will see scroll bars. When resizing the Whiteboard to the right, you are incrementally increasing the size of the Whiteboard to reach the actual resolution set when the session was created. And if your Pane 4 is smaller than the actual resolution, you will always see scroll bars.

You can expand Pane 4 in the following ways:

A - "Maximize Me" will enlarge pane 4 for the individual only.

B -  "Maximize All" will enlarge pane 4 for all participants in the session.

C - " Horizontal Resizer" - Allows Host to hide side right panel.
