Who Knew? 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Mikogo – Part 2

10 Things You Didn't Know - Mikogo

And we’re back! Here it is, as promised, the second part of our “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Mikogo” blog post series. Below you will find another five of Mikogo’s great, but perhaps unknown, features each of which, again, applies to at least one of the four primary use cases – meetings, trai­ning, presen­ta­tions, and remote support. Read on, enjoy, and let us know which of these caught you most by surprise! Or let us know if there is another feature or two which you get great use out of but you think others might not be aware of the benefits.

1. Branding Options

Logo Branding - Mikogo

The Mikogo soft­ware allows compa­nies and indi­vi­duals to inte­grate their own brand into the soft­ware by embed­ding logos/images in the soft­ware inter­face and the waiting room. This feature is desi­gned to help the Mikogo user opti­mize logo bran­ding, giving a touch of profes­sio­na­lism that will impress clients and colle­agues alike. Check out our previous blog post on this feature to see how quickly and easily you can inte­grate your logo and brand images into Mikogo.

2. Set Presenter Scale

With the Mikogo presenter scale you can virtually decrease your screen reso­lu­tion and increase the speed of your presen­ta­tion – ideal when using Mikogo for online presen­ta­tions. This feature is espe­ci­ally helpful if atten­dees have a slower connec­tion or are joining via a 3G connec­tion from on the road. You can adjust and set the presenter scale under “Settings” in the soft­ware either during or before you start a session.

3. Instant Screen Build-Up

Instant Screen Build-Up

By turning on the Instant Screen Build-Up feature you can allow parti­ci­pants to view your screen changes in real-time as the images get beamed over the Web. This feature is parti­cu­larly useful when you are opening and closing multiple windows rapidly during a session on the presenter’s screen, as ordi­na­rily new windows will wait to fully load before appearing on the screen. Conse­quently you will find this feature parti­cu­larly helpful during remote support sessions when you are control­ling a client’s screen and moving quickly between diffe­rent windows/applications, as it will increase the speed of screen sharing. You’ll find this under “Settings” during a Mikogo session.

4. Scheduled Session Reminder

Being able to sche­dule Mikogo sessions in advance is very helpful, but some­times just sche­du­ling a meeting isn’t enough. That’s why we created the Session Reminder. Once you’ve sche­duled an online meeting you can set up a reminder, which will send an email to your inbox prior to the start of the sche­duled session. Simple, but effec­tive. After all, even the best of us are forgetful at times. You’ll find this option in the soft­ware when you are crea­ting a new sche­duled session.

5. Multi-User Whiteboard

Multi-User Whiteboard

With the White­board it is possible to high­light and illus­trate in real-time with multiple parti­ci­pants simul­ta­neously. This means your parti­ci­pants can use the white­board tools on your screen when you’re presen­ting. There is no need to switch presenter; users can simply open the White­board and begin, thus making online colla­bo­ra­tion faster and easier. Further­more, if you ever want to come back to a slide you were discus­sing before you can simply save your White­board drawings as a screen­shot and review them later.

Well we hope you’ve learned some­thing new over these past two posts; there are plenty more unique and useful Mikogo features out there, and surely plenty more to come. We will keep you posted on any new deve­lo­p­ments coming your way and in the mean­time feel free to share your expe­ri­ence with Mikogo below!
