==Companion app before sign in==

==Sign-in page==
Companion has got an improved user interface that gives the users an option of signing in to the app as per their roles. This means you can '''SELECT''' your role and access the app based on the following options:
+
This page presents the users with multiple options to sign in to the app based on their profiles. Also, the users can see the [[File:Info.jpg|30px|link=]] icon at the top left of the screen for Settings-related information and submitting feedback.
* '''Host / IT admin''': A host can be anyone who is presenting the canvas. It can be a teacher, a corporate worker, and so on. The IT admin can use the same option to access the Companion app.
+
 
* '''Participant''': A participant can be a student or a coworker attending the meeting session.
+
===How sign-in works===
* '''Guest''': If you don’t have a myViewBoard account and want to log in to the Companion app as a guest for work collaboration, then you just need to enter the “Host name” and “Your name”. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code shared by the host with you in place of writing the host's name.
+
# '''Select your role to sign in''': Pick your role either as a '''Host/IT admin''' or as a '''Participant''' for using Companion. It is noteworthy that the hosts and participants use their registered individual myViewBoard accounts to access Companion, whereas IT admins log in with their Entity Admin accounts or scan the QR code to enter the app.

  • Apple devices must be running iOS 9 or higher.
  • Allow permissions for camera and file access if using the Throw feature.

Sign-in page

This page presents the users with multiple options to sign in to the app based on their profiles. Also, the users can see the Info.jpg icon at the top left of the screen for Settings-related information and submitting feedback.

How sign-in works

  1. Select your role to sign in: Pick your role either as a Host/IT admin or as a Participant for using Companion. It is noteworthy that the hosts and participants use their registered individual myViewBoard accounts to access Companion, whereas IT admins log in with their Entity Admin accounts or scan the QR code to enter the app.
    • Sign in with your Google, Microsoft, or Apple account that you registered with us:
      • Google.svg Sign in with Google
      • Microsoft.svg Sign in with Microsoft
      • Apple.svg Sign in with Apple
    • Sign in with your email:
      • Provide your email and password.
      • Click the SIGN IN tab.
        Note: Click Forgot password? to reset the password, and an email will be sent to your regular email id.
  2. Join as a Guest: If you don’t have a myViewBoard account and want to join Companion as a guest for work collaboration, then type in the “Host name” and “Your name” in the given fields. Alternatively, scan the QR code of the Whiteboard session you want to join in.
  3. Sign Up: If you haven't created a myViewBoard account yet, you can do so here.To use all features, we advise you to sign up and use all features.

Once logged in, you will be able to use the Companion app as a remote control for your Whiteboard for Windows or Whiteboard for Android sessions.

After signing in as hosts and IT admins

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.

When signed in, hosts and IT admins can access 3 pages:

Companion btn participate.png Participate
Companion btn control.png Remote control
Companion btn cast.png Wireless presentation


Participate

  • This page is for interacting with Whiteboard sessions from other users, for example sharing files or participating in quizzes.
  • Each time, you can send a file or response to a different host by either entering the name of the host or selecting one from the list.
  • Throw, Pop Quiz, and Polls are only available for the hosts with Premium or Entity accounts.

When signed in, you will also see your user profile picture/icon in the top left. Click this for settings and to sign out of the app.



The participate screen contains the following:

349t8y3986 yo8hg04857gh029354gh2-53.svg Log in to a Whiteboard by scanning a QR code

Access a Whiteboard with the QR code

Accessing a whiteboard with the Companion app's QR code function is quick and secure. You do not need to type out an email or password.


Use the Companion app to log in to the Whiteboard with the QR code scanner:

  1. Launch the Companion app.
  2. Sign in to Companion, if not already.
  3. Click the 349t8y3986 yo8hg04857gh029354gh2-53.svg icon to scan the QR code displayed on the Whiteboard for Windows or Android screen.


If you can't find the QR code on the whiteboard, click the icon in the bottom right of the screen to display login options.


Throw

Throwimg.png

Throw lets you share files or photos from your phones to a Whiteboard session. Follow the given steps to use this feature:

  1. Click the Throw icon.
  2. Select Camera or Browse, then take your picture or select the file.
  3. On the next screen, enter the Host Whiteboard name, or scan the QR code of the Whiteboard.
    • The host name is the name of the Whiteboard session you are throwing the files to. This field is automatically filled in with the last host name you interacted with, for sharing files.
    • Click the CAnew-Icons-ThrowHistory.jpg icon to see a list of host names you've previously sent files to.
  4. Click the icon to send the file.

If successful, the Whiteboard session host should receive a notification.

If you are sending the file to your own Whiteboard session (the Companion app and Whiteboard are signed in with the same account), the Companion app will also ask you if you want to open the file on the Whiteboard. If you choose not to, you can always access all thrown files from the notifications icon or I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg Magic Box > Throw.

Once Companion is installed, it will also appear under the default Android or iOS Share/Send options alongside other apps and email, etc.
