Presenter mode

Presenter Mode allows you to view your speaker notes while sharing slides with ClickShare, either using the ClickShare Button (Base Unit with firmware v1.9.2.12 or above) or with the ClickShare Desktop App (v4.1.0.34 or above) which can be downloaded and installed (without the need for admin rights) here: www.clickshare.app. Presenter mode works with PowerPoint both on Windows and macOS computers.

Using Presenter Mode does not require the installation of the ClickShare Extension Pack containing the Extended Desktop Driver.

Interesting to know: When sharing a Slide Show using Share an application you will be reminded of the Presenter Mode functionality through a useful notification. This notification remains on screen for 10 seconds and is only shown the first five times your share a Slide Show.
