GroupMap is integrated directly into Seshboard, making it easy to run powerful group brainstorming sessions during your sessions.
Starting GroupMap in Seshboard
To start GroupMap in Seshboard, click the "GroupMap" button in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to open the GroupMap menu:
Adding GroupMap maps to your room
You can easily add maps to your room before the session from the Room Management screen, or from within the room itself.
To add a new map to your room from within the room itself, click the "Add a GroupMap" button on the GroupMap menu. Copy the invite link to the map you created in GroupMap, and paste it into the field labelled "Paste your GroupMap invite link here." Be sure to give your map a title so that you can easily identify it from the list of maps you've added to your Seshboard room. Your map will now appear in the list of maps videos available for your room:
Important Note: if your participants will be interacting with the map directly, make sure to add the "Contributor" invite link (not the "Viewer" link) for the map you created
