When you start a collaborative session and set up its access permissions, you can choose from three preset collaboration scenarios that can help you quickly set the way you want your collaboration to play out — be it an Open Collaboration during which you can whiteboard together with others freely, a Presentation, or an Interactive Broadcast that allows you to livecast your screen in other apps.
The preset scenarios include ready-made sets of rules and features that you can use without the need to configure the settings on your own. However, you can customize them any time you need. Learn more about the collaboration rules and features.

Available preset scenarios
Note: Scenarios, and collaboration rules, tools, and features apply only to Participants. The Owner and the Host of the project have always full access to all features. Learn more about roles in collaboration.
This is the default scenario for all collaborations. All Participants with Editing access can edit the contents of the project, move around freely, and talk through the Voice chat.
Chose this scenario for group projects, brainstorming sessions, or anytime you'd like your audience to participate in the process.
- Always follow the host - OFF
- No editing - OFF
- Muted microphones - OFF
- Voice chat - Enabled
This preset takes away Participants' ability to move around the project or edit it. It also makes sure their microphones are muted at all times so that you can lead the way around the project. Enabled Voice chat means your audience will still be able to hear you.
Choose this scenario whenever you need to present the contents of your project and want to be sure that everyone always follows what you do and say.
- Always follow the host – ON
- No editing – ON
- Muted microphones – ON
- Voice chat – Enabled
This preset lets you share your Explain Everything screen and not worry about overlapping audio as the Voice chat is completely disabled. It also lets you invite someone from outside Explain Everything to the project and make sure they're working on the same thing as you are.
Choose this preset whenever you're sharing your Explain Everything screen in other video conferencing apps and still want the ability to invite someone to edit the project with you.
- Always follow the host – ON
- No editing – OFF
- Muted microphones – OFF
- Voice chat – Disabled
