What are external tools?
You are in the documentation of the SPEAKER features. Accordingly, the participant functions are not described here.
The documentation of the participant survey functions can be found here.
The (number of) external tools & the respective icons are set up by the administrator of the session in backstage and are visible to you on the left navigation bar.
The tool can appear either as a panel, in full screen mode or in an extra window (opens in a new tab). This is to be set by the admin and cannot be influenced by you as speaker.
For more information on the administrator features, click here.
Open and Close tools for myself
With a mouseover effect over the icon the name or the functionality, etc. of the tool is visible for you. Clicking the icon opens and closes the tool panel.
Open and Close tools for all attendees
Here you can decide whether to open or close the panel for all participants.
External tools are also available in the mobile view, due to screen size there is no difference between panel view and fullscreen view.
More information and descriptions of the user interface for speakers can be found here.
