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:

IMPORTANT VIEWING NOTE:
*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.
