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

Why use this feature?

Know that time when group work feels like a giant game of telephone? Directions are incorrectly interpreted and everything is confusing? Yeah, it’s not a great feeling.  

In times like those, grant control is your best friend. This tool allows you to “grant control” to someone else who is then able to access your applications and/or desktop.

For example, if a group of people are collaborating remotely on a presentation, they may be working off of one master slide deck. Instead of having multiple versions, the chairperson of the group can grant control of his desktop to any of the other participants. They can then make edits, without worrying about confusion and inconsistencies.

Another great example is training. Should you need to share your desktop or an application for tutorials, projects, trainings or the like with an instructor, you can easily do so with grant control.

Bottom line, this helps to eliminate the confusion and make your collaboration more productive and efficient.

How to use this feature:

  • Start a meeting
  • In the participants section of the interface, right click on the name of the participant you intend to grant control
  • Hit Grant Control
  • A dialog box will open asking if you want to share your desktop or applications and with which user
  • When complete, you’ll notice your screen change and a dialogue box will say “you are sharing applications”
  • By clicking the green arrow button in the tool bar will allow you to return and stop sharing applications

On a related note, if a participant would like to request for control from the chairperson, he simply needs to right click on the chairperson's name and then hit "Request Control". The chairperson is then notified and can approve or deny the request.The action initates the same function of sharing applications and/or the desktop of the participant.

What is your best example of using grant control? Share with us below.
