The Whiteboard on Cisco Spark Board

With Cisco Spark Board's whiteboard activity, enhance your meeting presentations with visuals you can change on the fly. More than one person can draw on the whiteboard at once, so you can engage and collaborate with participants both in the room and with those connected remotely from another device or from the app. You can use the Cisco Spark Board's touchscreen to draw with your fingers or use the pen provided. With the Cisco Spark app you can also save your drawings to work on later or share with others who weren't there to continue the discussion after the meeting.

Open a New Whiteboard

       
1    Tap Whiteboard , on the Home screen.  

  

If you haven't already created a whiteboard during your session, a new whiteboard opens.

  
2    Tap New whiteboard from within the whiteboard you are using to open another whiteboard.  

If you create more than one whiteboard during a session, each new one is added to the Whiteboards list. You can also open a new whiteboard from the Whiteboards list. For more, see Open an Existing Whiteboard.

  
3    Use the pen that is supplied or simply use your fingers to draw on the whiteboard. Choose from different colors and remove lines using the eraser. Two people can draw on the whiteboard simultaneously.  

  
4    Press the Home button when you want to leave the whiteboard.

Open an Existing Whiteboard

 

If you create more than one whiteboard during a session, each new one is added to the Whiteboards list. You can use this screen to open whiteboards you have created in your current session.

  
      
1    Tap Whiteboard , on the Home screen.   

  

If there are existing whiteboards, the whiteboards list appears.

  
2    Tap the thumbnail icon of the whiteboard you want to continue using.  

  
Note        

Tap All whiteboards to get to the whiteboards list from within the whiteboard you are currently using.

  
  
3    Tap New whiteboard to create more whiteboards from the Whiteboards list.

Delete a Whiteboard

 

You can delete the whiteboards you aren't using anymore from the whiteboards list on your Cisco Spark Board. The whiteboards that you create during your session are stored here and remain available during your session. When you finish your session by tapping the home button or when Cisco Spark Board goes to sleep, the whiteboards that are stored in the whiteboards list are deleted.

  

If you want to keep the whiteboards you create on Cisco Spark Board after your session has finished, see Save your Whiteboard to Cisco Spark

  
       
1    Tap Select, from the whiteboards list.   

  
2    Tap the whiteboard thumbnails, for the whiteboards you want to remove. A check mark appears on the selected whiteboards.
3    Tap Delete, and confirm your choice in the dialog box.
4    Tap Delete all and confirm your choice in the dialog box, if you want to clear all whiteboards from the list.

Save your Whiteboard to Cisco Spark

 

When paired to the Cisco Spark app, you can open a space on your Cisco Spark Board device, and save the whiteboards you create there to a space. For more on how to open a Space on Cisco Spark Board, see Open a Space on a Spark Board.

  

When a space is open on Cisco Spark Board, all members of the space can access the whiteboard from the Whiteboards list and make further changes to that whiteboard. If you want to keep a record of the current version of the whiteboard, save it to the space.

  

Note


 

While you use the whiteboard, Cisco Spark Board saves your work automatically. When you finish your session on Cisco Spark Board (either when you press and hold the home button or the device goes to sleep), all boards on the whiteboards list are cleared. Saving your work to a space is a good way of ensuring that it continues to be available so that you can work on it later.
