If you want to share something with other attendees in a meeting you can do so using a number of different methods.

Firstly, click on ‘Share My Screen’

Having clicked on ‘Share My Screen’, choose ‘Share Document’.  If you wish to share documents such as PowerPoint files, the ‘Share Document’ option is best. Note that not all filetypes can be shared in this way. Some filetypes such as Word files should be shared by using ‘Share My Screen’ and then ‘Applications’

‘Share Document’ is more useful for sharing items such as PowerPoint files (which can then be scrolled through), images, and Flash videos files.

From here, you can choose what you wish to share.  If you have previously shared documents to this meeting, you will see a list of previously shared documents which you can quickly re-share.  Alternatively, you can click on ‘Browse My Computer…’ in order to upload new content directly to the meeting.  Note that only supported file types will show up (primarily this will be images, PowerPoint files, PDFs, and flash video files).
