Liveshare

We are disabling LiveShare in mid-January 2018. Please see our announcement for the full details.

 

LiveShare is one of InVision's in-browser collaboration tools- a real-time presentation and collaboration tool. During a LiveShare presentation, every member of a LiveShare has their own pointer and name tag, so there’s no more guessing about which part of the design someone else is talking about. Since LiveShare happens in-browser, everyone sees the design at full resolution and quality. To make things even easier, you can VOIP chat live in-browser, or call in to a special conference line made just for you.

With LiveShare, the presenter controls the meeting, meaning that other members of the meeting can't skip ahead. You can also use LiveShare to sketch your ideas out on top of the design you’re reviewing, or jump into the new whiteboard mode for a clean slate. Comments are a great way to capture notes during a meeting, and anyone can add them at any point during a LiveShare meeting.
