You can upload custom images for the background and pen in Whiteboard. Users need to have a cloud storage account bound to their myViewBoard account to use their own images.


Bind your cloud storage account to myViewBoard

  1. Sign in to http://www.myViewBoard.com.
  2. Click your avatar, and select FollowMe from the drop down.
  3. Click Cloud Integration on the side panel.
  4. On the Cloud Integration screen, select the cloud storage account you want to bind.
  5. Sign in to your account and allow myViewBoard to access your account.

After binding, a new folder named myViewBoard is created at the root directory of your cloud storage account.

Repeat this process for all cloud storage accounts to bind. By default, the first bound account becomes the default storage account. Contents of all bound storage accounts can be accessed via the Magic Box.
