Attention Management is a set of powerful facilitation features for meetings and workshops. It allows meeting organizers and workshop facilitators to guide participants and ensure everyone is following and engaged.

Why use attention management?
This feature is especially important for facilitating massive workshops with dozens of participants because it helps to direct their attention to the area of the board where collaboration is happening at a particular moment. As a facilitator, you can easily switch between presenting and collaborating - take the stage and present the board to the participants and, when necessary, start collaborating right away.
💡Never get lost on the board with the color alignment - the color of the cursors and avatar borders of your collaborators are synchronized for all board participants.
If you are working with multiple facilitators or presenters, it's possible to follow them. This way you can easily switch between different areas of the board and follow what other participants do.
Navigate to the cursors tracking panel in the top right corner and click on the avatar of a particular collaborator to start following them. To stop following a user, click anywhere on the board or just zoom in/out.
Following the collaborator
Bring everyone to me
Easily bring all collaborators to the area of the board you want everyone to focus on with Bring everyone to me functionality. Once you bring all of the participants to the particular area of the board, we enable auto-following, which means that all of the collaborators will be seeing exactly the same content as you.
Navigate to the cursors tracking panel in the top right corner and click on your own avatar and choose to bring all collaborators to the area of the board you want them to focus on.
