When you've brought a group of people together for a brainstorming session, team building, or a quick icebreaker activity, sometimes someone needs to buzz in.

The Buzzer smart object displays who pressed it first and plays a sound.

Smart objects are located in the Explore menu.

  1. In the toolbar, select Explore.
  2. Scroll or search to find the object you want.
  3. Drag and drop the object onto the canvas, or select it once to add it in the center.
On your keyboard, enter / and type the name of any object to find it faster.

Configure the buzzer

Once you've added a buzzer to your freehand, configure it to meet your needs. You can change the buzzer's sound and button text.

  1. Add the smart object to the canvas.
  2. Select the object, and in the contextual menu, select image Configure. The configuration panel opens.

In the Text field, enter the text you'd like the buzzer to display.
