: Allows you to set the moderator for the board.  The desired moderator then touches the base of the board near the colored buttons.

Vote Mode
When on, allows participants to cast one vote per each note.
When turned off, the votes reset to zero and disappear.

Removes all notes from the board.  Be sure to export before you erase.

Supp Board: You can creates a supplemental board if you need more sorting space, and delete it when you are done.

Seating: Creates a small table and POV Chairs.  Once seated, participants can cycle through preset camera views for optimal board viewing.

Export: Exports the text of all notes from the Main board or Supplemental board to the moderator & owner.  You can choose to export to text chat, or to an email address.  You can also set the email address via the menu option.

Import: You can populate the board quickly by importing a text outline via chat.  Each left-justified line (like “Agenda” and “Tasklist” in the example) will create a new note.  All lines below that are either indented or contain a space (like “Introductions” and “Brainstorm”) will be included in the note. The following is an example of the properly formatted text outline and the resulting BrainBoard input:


*Much like the physical world, the text on the board is better viewed closer.  Move too far away, and the text disappears.
*Both sides are viewable to maximize participant view.
