Settings:

Allow participants to browse the whiteboard pages

When this option is turned ON the participants in the session will be able to switch to different pages independently from the host or the other participants.

Turning the option OFF (default state) gives the host the ability to choose which page of the whiteboard will be currently visible for all participants in the virtual classroom.

NOTE: This setting cannot be turned ON in one breakout room and turned OFF in another. Turning it on affects every participant in the current session.

Switch participants to simple view-only mode

This option controls the interface and the overall workspace of the Whiteboard.

When turned ON, participants in the current session will have no access to the whiteboard tools on the left side and the functional windows buttons on the right side of the virtual classroom. The focus is shifted to the content on the whiteboard. This feature is useful when working with pre-school or elementary students to avoid unwanted distraction.

However, the whiteboard tools and the functional windows buttons will remain visible for the host.
