OCS R2: A really easy way to share your desktop
I didn’t know just how simple and easy this was. I was chatting to Jane who is onsite at a customer and showed her how to share your desktop and to transfer control.
All you need to do is click the sharing icon – the one with the hand under it… which sends an invite to the other party in the conversation. Here’s the notification that Jane sent me:
Here’s Jane’s desktop with her in control:
It’s easy enough to give control to the other person click on the drop down box and decide who to give control to. in the box below – Jane has given me control of her desktop
So this is fine if you just want to have a 1:1 peer to peer conversation – but what if you want to include someone else in the conversation? Easy. just use the invite button as normal. Notice that Ewan, who has just joined the conference has automatically been added to the sharing session.
And now I have the option who I choose to give control to. All, or just one of the participants. Great for collaboration. Great ad hoc way for working together..
