Use Drawing Tools (Desktop App)

Participants can use drawing tools to draw directly on the shared screen so that the marks are visible to all attendees. This allows participants to highlight areas of the screen, draw attention to certain parts and generally illustrate their point. Organizers and presenters can allow only other organizers or all attendees to draw on the shared screen.
