Start an Instant Share session to immediately share whatever is on your screen, with just a single click of your mouse. Other participants can take control of your shared screen and make changes to the documents there. Instant Share provides all sharing capabilities, but not all the tools that are available in online meetings.
Start a meeting if you want to share what is on your screen, but also have a complete set of meeting tools, such as the ability to send web pages (URLs) and polls to participants, and to call in to the meeting and use video, if these features are available to you. All Sametime
meetings take place in meeting rooms, which can either persist for reuse from one meeting to the next, or be temporary rooms that are deleted as soon as you finish the meeting.
So, which do I use?
Whether you use Instant Share or Sametime
meetings is up to you, depending on what you want to do while sharing your screen.
To use Instant Share, your administrator must install Sametime
Communicate and Sametime
