Presentation Mode

Creating a Presentation Review Link

Presentation Mode is currently only available in our Enterprise level accounts.

To use the Presentation Mode in a review, please change the Review Type to "Presentation":

Adding Hosts

Anybody with access to the project where your review lives can be added as a host in Presentation Mode.  All hosts will have full control with all tools during the review.

Please note: Presentation Mode will override the "Annotate, Download and Approve" settings, even if they're enabled.  The rule to remember is when Presentation Mode is enabled, everyone attending will be limited to the Attendee Interface regardless of what these settings say.

Waiting Room

When joining a Review using Presentation Mode, attendees who are not a host will sit in the waiting room until the host has joined the live review.

 

Pro Tip:  Hosts can prep for a review from within the player interface by starting the review early, then clicking the "Leave Meeting" button in the upper right corner of the interface. 

This will take the host out of the live review, which will effectively keep the attendees in the waiting room until you're ready.  Another bonus is that by doing this, you can also see who has joined the waiting room by looking at the list of users in the upper right.

Once everybody is there, you can start the review by clicking the "Join Meeting" button.

 

Attendee Review Interface

You'll notice that Attendees have a very simplified interface when joining a review

They will be able to see a representation of the timeline with the current frame number and total frame count, but will not be able to scrub or start/stop playback of the timeline.

The only tool available to attendees is the Laser Pointer so they may point out things throughout the review.  They also have a number of size and color options for their Laser Pointer.

Attendees also have the ability to adjust and mute their own volume, and enter/exit full screen mode.

Host Review Interface

As you can see below, anybody who has been added as a host to a Review in Presentation Mode will have full access to the full suite of tools in the SyncSketch interface that they're used to.
