During a call, you can share information from one or more applications on your computer. Here are some examples:
- Share your word processor and let call participants see your meeting notes as you type.
- Share pictures from your computer as a slideshow.
- Share your image editor or other visualization tool, drawing as you go.
- Share your web browser, email inbox, or calendar.
- Windows: Share your entire screen with all open applications, for example, to demonstrate a process onscreen.
- Click on the toolbar. A list of your open applications appears.
- Select an application. Sharing starts automatically.
Windows: Select Entire screen to share all applications on your desktop.
Windows: If you choose to share your entire screen, we recommend minimizing the Cisco Jabber Video screens, in particular the video screen. Otherwise, these are included in the shared presentation.
- The shared application appears to you as a picture-in-picture inside the video screen. Double-click the PiP to switch focus to it.
If you have limited bandwidth or system resources, turning off your camera during application sharing can improve presentation quality.
- To stop sharing, click , and then click Stop sharing presentation.
Windows: You can also share an application screen from within an application itself. Open the application and put it in full-screen mode (or slideshow mode for PowerPoint presentations). When a message appears asking whether you want to share the application using Jabber Video, click Yes. To stop sharing, exit full-screen or slideshow mode.
Mac: Other participants cannot see your cursor or mouse pointer when you share an application. Also, Mac OS does not support sharing your entire screen.
