Sign in to Whiteboard with the Companion app

Signing in to a whiteboard with the Companion app's QR code function is the quickest and most secure method. You do not need to type out an email or password.


Use the Companion app to sign in to the Whiteboard quickly and securely with the QR code scanner function:

  1. Launch the Companion app.
  2. Sign in to Companion, if not already.
  3. Click the QR Code icon ( ) 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 lets you share files or photoss 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 myViewBoard 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 myViewBoard 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. Sharing using this method is the same as above, only instead of first opening Companion and selecting a file, you can first select the file and click the phone's Share or Send icon.


Pop Quiz

Answer a Pop Quiz from a Whiteboard with your Companion app. Users do not need to be signed in to answer.

  1. Click Pop Quiz 30px.
  2. Use the pen, text, or AI pen to draw or write your answer. Alternatively, select a file from your device by clicking the file 878ty320ty304ty2-039t234t324t.svg icon.
  3. Click the paper plane icon to send your drawing or file to the whiteboard.
