Throw allows users to send images, videos, and other documents wirelessly from their device to a Whiteboard session. No download necessary.

Throw is available in Whiteboard for Windows, Whiteboard for Android, and Whiteboard for iOS for Premium and Entity tier accounts.

Before using Throw

Use Throw to wirelessly share files to a Whiteboard.
  • To use Throw, make sure you are signed in to Whiteboard (see sign in to Whiteboard for a guide).
  • Share your Whiteboard session ID to your audience, either as a URL or a QR code. The session ID is the myViewBoard name that appears in the top left of the Whiteboard. Users can Throw files to your Whiteboard session from a web browser or the myViewBoard Companion App. This is the same method for using Pop Quiz and Polls.

Note: On Whiteboard for iOS, the host can long-press the QR code to copy the session URL. Alternatively, the QR code can be dragged onto the canvas so the audience can access the QR code at any time.

Note: Throw is always available to the audience while the Whiteboard session is active (as long as the Whiteboard host is signed in to Whiteboard). This means that even if the Throw window is not open in Whiteboard, people can still send files which will appear in the notifications area (  bell icon at the top of the screen). View these thrown files at any time by opening Throw from the   Magic Box.

How to use Throw

On the audience side, simply use a web browser or the myViewBoard Companion app to access the web portal for the host session.

Throw using the Whiteboard Portal webpage

The host may instruct users to go to a Whiteboard portal webpage to interact with the active Whiteboard session. To get the portal URL, the host must click the session's myViewBoard Name located on the top right corner of the titlebar to display the Portal URL or a QR code to share. The Portal is an online page that users can access without the need to sign in. It is recommended that participants use a Chromium-based browser like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to access the public portal.

The portal URL uses the following URL format:

  1. Enter your name or nickname and click Confirm.
  2. Under Throw files to the Whiteboard, click   upload, or drag and drop files into the area below.
  3. The selected object is automatically sent.

Throw using myViewBoard Companion


Throw lets you share files or photos from your device to an ongoing Whiteboard session. Follow these steps to use this feature:

  1. Tap the Throw icon.
  2. Select Camera or Browse, and then take a picture or select your desired 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 with the last host name you interacted with.
    • Tap the   icon to see a list of host names you've previously sent files to.
  4. Tap the icon to send the file.

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

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