Although similar features are available to hosts and IT admins, yet the objectives of using the app are slightly different for both of them.
 +
* '''Hosts''': For interacting with audience or students:
 +
** Answering the quizzes and engaging in specific discussions
 +
* '''IT admins''': For using admin-specific features:
 +
** Software activation / Device enrollment via QR code scan: To activate Whiteboard for Android, the device must have internet access.
 +
*** '''On the device'''
 +
**** Launch myViewBoard Whiteboard app.
 +
**** Click Activate and choose Entity Admin in the Whiteboard Activation window. This displays the QR code on the screen.
 +
*** '''On Companion'''
 +
**** Sign in with the Entity Admin account and use the scanner to scan the QR code
 +
**** In the Software Activation window, select Entity, type the Whiteboard name, and click Submit. This activates the application, and the device starts appearing in the "Software Instances" section within "Entity Management" under myViewBoard.com.
 +
 +
'''Note''': The entity end-users are advised to use Companion only when their user accounts have been successfully set up by an Entity Admin. This avoids users signing up for individual accounts that are not attached and managed by the entity and don’t have access to the whole functionality.
