===Sign in to Whiteboard with the Companion app===
 
  
A quick and secure way of signing in to Whiteboard sessions, without having to type an email address or password, is using the Companion app to sign in to the Whiteboard. Users can sign in to Whiteboard by scanning the QR code, using the Companion app (if signed in to the app).
 
  
 +
Use the Companion app to sign in to the Whiteboard with the QR code scanner:
 
# Launch the Companion app.  
 
# Launch the Companion app.

+
# Position the phone so that the QR code displayed on the Whiteboard for Windows or Android screen is inside the QR 'scanner' of the Companion app.

Installing the app also adds the Throw feature as a sharing option. To use on your mobile phone:
+
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 Magic Box > Throw.
# On any app that is capable of performing the "share" action, click Share, or the &nbsp;<i class="fas fa-share-alt"></i>&nbsp; icon if available.
 
# From the list of apps, select Companion.
 
# On the next screen, provide the Host Name.
 
#* The Host Name is the Name of the myViewBoard session you are throwing to. This should be provided by the user hosting the myViewBoard session.
 
#* Click the [[File:CAnew-Icons-ThrowHistory.jpg|16px]] icon to see a list of Host Names, you previously sent files to.
 
# Click the {{FA|far fa-paper-plane}} icon.
 
  
 +
Once Companion is installed, it will also appear under the default Android or iOS ''Share''/''Send'' options alongside other apps and email, etc.

Companion app before sign in

To use all features:

  • Sign in to your myViewBoard account.
  • If you haven't created a myViewBoard account yet, you can do so here.

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 sign in

When signed in, users can access 3 pages:

Companion btn participate.png Participate mode
Companion btn control.png Remote control

This page is for interacting with Whiteboard sessions from other users, for example sharing files or participating in quizzes.

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.

Sign in to Whiteboard with the Companion app

Signing in to 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 sign 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 QR Code icon 349t8y3986 yo8hg04857gh029354gh2-53.svg to open the phone's camera.
  4. Position the phone so that the QR code displayed on the Whiteboard for Windows or Android screen is inside the QR 'scanner' of the Companion app.


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

Throw.svg

Throw lets you share files or photos from your phone to a Whiteboard session.

  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 to.
    • 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 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.
