Can I host multiple activities per training?

Yes. You can host as many activities as you'd like during each training.

Can I change the individuals in each breakout during a single training?

Yes. You can switch up the small groups if you launch a second activity during the same training. If you select the same number of breakouts then the attendees will be sorted the same as they were previously; however, you can easily click and drag their names into a different breakout to rearrange them.

Can my mobile attendees join an activity?

Yes! Attendees using the iOS or Android apps can participate in any activity.

Can I use a different Google account for each activity?

Yes. GoToTraining uses whichever Google account you are currently signed in to. If you would like to change Google accounts, simply hover your mouse over the "Edit a doc together" option and then click Switch account. You can simply open a new browser window, sign out of Google, and then refresh the Activity Control page to see the Sign in with Google link reappear under "Edit a document". You can then sign in to the desired account.

See Collaborate on a Google Drive File (Activities) for more information.

Do my attendees need a Google account?

No. Attendees do not need their own account to collaborate on shared files during an activity, or to view them after the training is over (if you choose to share the file).

How do I upload a video to share?

Videos can only be streamed from YouTube or Vimeo. First upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo, then add the link to your Materials. See Share a Video, Image or PDF (Activities) for more information.

The Start button is grayed out; how do I start my session?

If you are unable to click the Start button, most likely you have not yet selected an activity for your attendees. Use the right navigation to do so, then try clicking Start again! See Start an activity for more information.

Are my activities included in the session recording?

No. The recording will be paused when an activity is launched.
