Facilitation tools

The meeting tools are key to using v2, so take some time to get to know them. This is how you enable private writing on your v2 boards and get tools to lead a meeting.

Facilitator controls

You must start a meeting (see below 👇) to become the board facilitator. As a facilitator, you can:
  • Turn on private writing to hide sticky notes
  • Decide which tools your participants get
  • Prevent participants from unlocking the board
  • Set a timer
  • Enable Anonymous mode
  • Run Polls
  • Start a 'Ready Check' of your participants
  • Use 'Everyone to Me' to bring people to you
  • Pause the meeting
  • Add co-facilitators

How to start a Meeting

Start a meeting from the button above the toolbar.
Choose Freestyle Meeting to initiate a instant meeting with private sticky notes and collaboration tools. We recommend using this option.
Choose Structured Meeting to plan your phases and tools ahead of the meeting. For example - create a retro with an icebreaker, main retro, and closing activity. You can set different active tools (sticky notes, confetti, voting) for each phase.
