Managing participants' access to board tools

By default, participants in a Proficonf virtual room with moderator and speaker roles can use all drawing and text-writing tools with the host.

The host or moderator can limit the use of the board tools for a particular participant, for this purpose it is necessary to change the role of the participant to - Viewer or block him.

To prevent all participants from using the board tools at the same time, the host or moderator can change the sharing settings in the conference room and select an option where only the host can demonstrate. To do this, press the "Settings" button in the upper right corner of the conference room.
