Access Your Sidebar in Full-Screen Mode with the External Sidebar Plugin 📲




Our first plugin of 2022 provides team members with an ingenious solution for accessing your sidebar while you’re sharing your entire screen in full-screen mode: With the new External Sidebar, you’ll be able to display your sidebar on a separate device or window! This means that you can check out your polls, answer questions, and monitor conversations with ease while you’re presenting in full-screen mode.

Where can you find this?

The External Sidebar plugin can be found in the App marketplace or by searching for it via the "Install more" shortcut on your Apps menu. Enable the plugin with one click to use it across all your events.

How can you use it?

Once you've enabled the External Sidebar plugin, you'll be able to access it via the Apps menu of your event room. To open this on a separate device, simply click on the plugin, scan the QR code using the smartphone or tablet of your choice and sign in to your Livestorm account once the page on your device loads. To open this in a new window, simply click on the button located beneath the QR code labeled “Open sidebar in new window”.
