BlueJeans Events

Screen Sharing for Promoted Attendee

Available Mid-October

The screen sharing option will be now available for event attendees who are promoted to be presenters. This enhancement will not be available by default and can only be enabled by the support team.

Block Content Sharing

Available Mid-November

In an effort to provide better moderator controls during an event, we are enabling an option on the Moderator Dashboard that blocks content sharing. Moderators will be presented with two separate options – one, to block audio, video & content sharing and another, to block content sharing only. This enhanced control can help moderators avoid unexpected presenter hijacking during important events.
