- Create a new Session in your cannyboard account on your personal device, or start directly on the Sessionboard: Tap on “Touch to Start” and on „Start Session“.

Open a Session from your personal device on the Sessionboard by clicking on the „Start“ button next to your Session. Then enter the PIN, which you can find on the bottom left of the Sessionboard, in order to connect your personal device to the Session.
- Alternatively, you can open your Session in Desktop Editing on your laptop / PC, in order to prepare it. Read more about this here.
Include participants on site
People in the same room can participate in the Session on the Sessionboard with their personal device, without needing an own cannyboard account:
Participants connected to the Session can contribute content to the Session via their personal device.
Include remote / hybrid participants
People in another location receive a link to the Session from the owner of the Session (host) and can thus participate via laptop / PC or Sessionboard:
Go to „My Sessions“ on your laptop / PC under the burger menu of your cannyboard account.
The participants open the link to the Session. If a Sessionboard is available to them, they can participate in the Session via Sessionboard. If this is not the case, participation via laptop / PC is possible.
Please note: When participating via laptop / PC, please use Google Chrome as browser.
To join a video call, tap / click “Join” in the Video Call Widget. Open the camera flap on the Sessionboard or enable the required access on the laptop / PC.
