Visit the ReadyTalk blog every Friday to learn more about a ReadyTalk feature.  

We get a lot of questions on the difference between granting control and promoting someone to co-presenter. Each has a specific function, but there are distinctive differences between the two.

Why use this feature?

Promoting to Co-Presenter:

When you promote a participant to co-presenter that person now has access to the same functions as the chairperson--sharing slides, annotation, sharing desktop, etc. This is great for presentations, for example, since you can promote someone to co-presenter so they can push the slides and respond to incoming participant chats. Also ideal for collaboration, this allows a participant to collaborate with the same controls as the chairperson has, like sharing their screen.

 

When promoting to co-presenter, select the participant name from the list and hit "Promote to Co-Presenter". It will say "Promoting" next to the name and change to "Presenter" when the process is complete.
 

Granting Control:

With Grant Control, you are allowing a participant to control your computer.  This can be used for specific applications like PowerPoint or Word or for the entire desktop. Take customer support for example. A customer care rep needs access to a participant’s computer to solve a problem. By granting control, the rep can access the right applications necessary to fix it. Other helpful examples where this is useful are trainings and tutorials.

 

Right click on the name of the participant you'd like to grant control, and select either "Grant Control of My Applications" or "Grant Control of My Desktop". If you only want to grant control of applications, select the application from the dialogue box and then hit "Grant Control".
 

 

When you have granted control of your applications or desktop, you will see this dialogue box.
