Switches the board between Moderator Mode & Collaborative Mode
Collaborative Mode: Anyone can Create Notes, Move Notes, and Edit Notes.
Moderator Mode: Only the set moderator or owner can use the board.
Pulls up a menu with administrative features for the Owner and Moderator:
Moderator: 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.
RESET: 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.
