This feature allows you to broadcast to other collaborators that are currently online on your shared map by transmitting the whole presentation to the other users' screens.

You will be asked if you want to broadcast the map when collaborators are in your mind map.

The whole presentation will be transmitted and replayed on the screens of all other users that have the map open at the same time.

Please note: Collaborators won't be able to make changes to your mind map while you are broadcasting.
