Redesigned AppShare mini toolbar

Prior to this update, when you started AppShare in the App client, the mini toolbar was displayed vertically along the left border of your screen. This toolbar was fixed and could not be moved to a different position while you shared applications in a session.

In this update, when you share an application, the floating mini toolbar now appears centered along the top border of your screen initially. You can move this toolbar to a convenient position on the screen by dragging it and even minimize it.

The redesigned mini toolbar retains all the existing key controls that you need to manage the session. However, these controls are now displayed below the toolbar while maintaining the overall dimensions of the toolbar.

  • Quit AppShare - Allows you to stop sharing your applications in the session.
  • Pause AppShare - Allows you to pause sharing your applications in the session.
  • Transition Options - Allows you to view transition options, where you can select any other application and start sharing it immediately.

    • The options to start Whiteboard, Polls, and so on are no longer displayed on the new toolbar during AppShare. Now, you need to end AppShare and then access the Whiteboard, Polls, and so on.
    • The Share audio check box is now replaced by the Share computer sound option. This new option appears only after you start AppShare.
  • Markup Tools - Allows you to view different markup tools. Clicking the markup icon takes a snapshot of the shared application and then allows you to markup the snapshot.

  • Audio Options - Allows you to set up your microphone.
  • Video Options - Allows you to set up your camera.
    Note: In the Premium Video mode, when a video is displayed while sharing, the toolbar also displays the active videos. However, if the user who is sharing is using multiple monitors, then the video is shown as undocked on the second screen.
  • Attendees Panel - Allows you to view attendees in the session.
  • Chat Panel - Allows you to open the chat window.
  • Recording Status - Allows you to play or pause the recording of the session.
  • Gestures - Allows you to view and start using various gestures.

Prior to this update, the AppShare vertical toolbar did not allow you to share what was under the toolbar area. With the new AppShare mini toolbar, you can share what is under the toolbar without sharing the toolbar itself.
