Starting a moderation session
To start a live moderation, click on the moderation button in the top right corner of the board. This mode will allow you to take control of every board participant's view.
The other users will follow your User Cursor and current position on the board. Guests may also use the moderator mode on boards where this feature is enabled.
User cursors are automatically turned on when another user joins the board. During presentations and discussions, they can help you see what specific section another user is talking about. If you are running a presentation with more than 10 people it might be useful to turn off the User Cursors from the view menu while presenting, to make it easier to follow along.
You can also set up a board outline with the different sections of the board for easy navigation and flow during the presentation.
For more space to follow live presentations, you can minimize the minimap and top bar. Click on the minimap symbol (compass) displayed at the bottom left of your screen to hide the minimap. To hide the top bar including the board title and menus, click on the double arrow symbol at the top right of your screen.
How to make someone else a moderator
Click on a live user icon in the upper right corner and choose "Make moderator".
Leaving a moderation session
If you are an Editor on the board you can leave a moderation session. Click the red button next to the moderator and toggle off the moderation panel. Ongoing moderations will be marked by a red for in the toolbar.
Moderation sessions in the current board session will be ignored. This means if someone starts another moderation session while you are in the board, you will not automatically join it. You can still manually join a moderation session.
Notes: Reviewers and Readers can't leave a moderation session. In special cases where the Board owner has removed Editor management rights, Editors will not be able to leave a moderation session.
Please have a look at the permission table to understand different possible actions for people with different board access roles:
|Role||Start own moderation||Stop own moderation||Ignore moderation||Make someone else moderator|
✓2 available if editor management is enabled in board settings
Tips for running a moderation session
- Setup sections to make it easier to run through your presentation.
Go fullscreen/hide toolbar to make sure your view is uncluttered.
Turn off user cursors from the view menu if you have a lot of users following along to keep your view uncluttered.
Keep an eye on the Minimap.
