Web Screen Share for desktop or laptop

Web screen Share is a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) feature for devices with Windows OS or Mac OSX, that allows you to present on multiple devices that clients bring to the meeting.

You can use a Windows tablet or computer to present, while your clients can display content on their smartphones, tablets or computers regardless whether they have iOS, Android or Windows operating system.

Connecting devices is easy and fast. The listeners can connect by opening a link in a browser or scanning a QR code. The control is at the presenter’s hand, but the presenter also has the right to release control and let listeners navigate freely on their own devices.

1. Prepare

Log in to the Shaman App, and ask your clients to prepare their devices. Internet connection is a must, so make sure all devices are connected to the WiFi or another source of internet.

2. Connect devices

Select Web Screen Share from the menu options of the presentation you would like to share. On the next page the meeting information is displayed.

Keep in mind!
Your meeting status should be active and healthy. If this is not the case, please, check your internet connection!

By default, your device is in charge, so you decide what is displayed on your clients screen. Swipe to the right, scroll down or go backwards, the connected iPads will follow the way you navigate.

Connecting via link

Share the full or partial link with the listeners and ask them to open it in an internet browser. If you share a full link (i.e. https://meeting.direct/<companyname>/<meetingcode>), listeners can join right after typing in their names. Sharing a partial link (https://meeting.direct/<companyname>) will require listeners to give in a password, only after this step can they type in their names and join.

Connecting via QR code

You can also opt for letting listeners join in by scanning a QR code. Click “Show QR Code” to display it on your screen. Listeners with iPhones or iPads can use their camera to scan the code. Android devices may have Bixby or another app to assist them with scanning the code.

Connected attendees

As listeners connect to the meeting, you will see their names appear in the connected attendees list. Beside the names you should also see the type of device that listeners use to connect (phone, tablet or computer) and their status. If the WiFi icon is marked green, it means the device is online. When the icon turns grey, the device has lost connection.

3. Present

Navigation

To start presenting click the navigation view icon and select the slide you would like to start your presentation with. Navigation works as usual. Use the navigation arrows on the left side to scroll in any direction. The button added to the middle will take you back to the previously discussed slide.

Home and navigation view

Click the home icon to go back to the home-screen of the presentation or click the navigation view icon to select any other slide in the presentation.

Add presentations

You can also add up to three extra presentations, just click the icon on the left. Switch between presentations by clicking the tabs on the top of the page. When you don’t need them anymore, click the cross on the tab to close them.

Release or take over control

During the presentation you can go back to the Web Screen Share setting any time. Click the icon at the upper left corner of the screen.

Select “No” to control devices if you want to release control and let the listeners scroll through the slides. As you set this option, two navigation icons automatically appear on the listener devices. They can use the navigation arrows and the navigation view just like you do to scroll over the slides of the presentation.

If you want to take back control again, select “Yes” to control devices. The navigation icons on the listener devices will immediately disappear, and the devices will update to display the same slide what is presented on your screen.

4. End presenting

As usual, you can end the presentation from the navigation view by clicking “End” at the upper right corner.

The presentation is ended at the listener devices at the same time. Afterwards you will have the option to send handouts to the clients.
