Sending files / file sharing during the broadcast

Frequently, during the meeting we would like to share files to respective team member. It would be nice if Gotomeeting has this feature. Our current workaround is to make someone presenter just to show one file and take control back but it is not the right way,

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

Hi,

Currently we do not have a built in file sharing feature, however you can work around this by uploading the file to a service like http://www.sharefile.com/ and then pasting a link to the file in the Chat.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
File transfer.


Is there a way to do a file transfer from the presenters computer to one of the attendees computers? I was told this is possible but I can't see that option when signed in.

Thanks Glenn,

I don't think anybody wants to pay $100 per month just for this capability.

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

There are other free services out there that provide a similar service for small files.

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

I guess we will use WeTransfer. That seems to work well.

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

We're also looking for to be able to attach slides to the webinar link so that participants can download them prior to the session. Are there any solutions for this?

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

We are sometimes on GTM calls doing support and would like to have an attendee be able to send a screenshot of an error to the moderator/presenter, or just send a file, rather than showing it to everyone with the hassle of passing control and having them figure out how to show their screen. It would be much faster if you could just have a Send File button in the Chat control area, much like iMessage (Apple) and other IM clients have.

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

Glen, the "free" services are not at all secure and would not be allowed (by network restriction) in many companies.
Many other meeting tools offer this functionality (TeamViewer for one), why not yours?

Re: Sending files during gotomeeting

Hi Kevin, I agree, if you need enterprise level file sharing I would recommend our Sharefile.com service. In regards to GoToMeeting, file sharing is on the road map and will be added once other work with a higher priority is completed. In TeamViewer's case they were a remote support tool first, so file and file sharing is a core tool for remote support.

GoToMeeting already allows you to share keyboard and mouse control with your attendees so that you can collaborate directly in an application or file during your meeting.
