When using PowerPoint, if you have multiple monitors, you can designate a monitor to view your speaker notes, and the other one (geared for the audience) would only see the slide deck. With only one monitor, you cannot view your speaker notes. I would like to think that if I am presenting a gotomeeting, there are multiple monitors involved. It would be a great patch if the gotomeeting module counted as a virtual monitor so I could designate my monitor shows the speaker notes while the audience only saw the presentation. I know, I can print the notes or view them on another device... I am just saying, this addition to gotomeeting would be very convenient.
Since the notes are part of the PowerPoint window itself, the only way to share just the slide portion would be to use our Labs feature which is available for PCs: https://support.goto.com/meeting/help/try-labs-features-g2m040017
We have found that another solution if you are working with PowerPoint slide decks on a single-screen system is to set Powerpoint to Specific Applicatin Sharing:
Once activated, this functionality should allow you to open PPT Slideshows in windowed-mode instead of full screen. GoToMeeting can then share that window only with the Attendees in order to allow the viewing of PPT Notes, or the use of other desktop applications simultaneously.
Sorry @tloepfe ,
What environment were you working in? Were there any specific errors or display issues while you were broadcasting?
You can record or create video in the presenter view with just one PC monitor using screen recording. Refer to the folloiwng Youtube video for more detailed explanation;
Sadly this Workaround does not work anymore. A blank white page is shown to the student when i am using speaker view. A week ago it worked fine 😞
Macbook Pro Catalina
Yeah, same here.
Is there another workaround? Our teachers need this kinda badly 😞
Are they using Windows PCs or Macs? The problem is when you put Powerpoint in this mode it expects you to have a projector or 2nd screen of some kind connected. If you are using a computer with a single screen there is going to be a problem.
