Solo Tip Tuesday: Remotely Share Screens and Collaborate on Documents for Free with Join.me

by Reba Nance on May 15, 2012

You may have heard of WebEx and Go to Meeting, or even participated in a session using these tools. When connected to the Internet, both allow you to see someone else’s screen and are used for document review and collaboration, demonstrations of anything that can be displayed on a computer screen, software training, remote tech support, and more. Perhaps you never checked these out because you assumed you couldn’t afford them.

Now there’s a free service that is amazingly full-featured. Check out join.me. Click on “Take a Tour” and watch a short video outlining the features of the free version. There is a paid version as well, but I’d suggest starting with the free version—it may be all you need.

The free version of join.me features:

  • Internet calling
  • Screen sharing
  • 250 viewers
  • Share control
  • Multi-monitor
  • Chat
  • Send files
  • Viewer: iPad/iPhone or Android

The paid version (join.me pro) includes everything in the free version plus:

  • Unified audio
  • Presenter swap
  • Pro desktop app
  • Personal link & background
  • Meeting scheduler
  • Meeting lock
  • User management
  • International conference lines

You can see this tip and others, on topics ranging from Outlook and Word help to App reviews and online tools, all here.

Longtime readers of the Colorado Bar Association’s C-Brief, its weekly eNewsletter, know each week there is a tip from Law Practice Management Director Reba Nance. Those tips are moving beyond the newsletter and now have a permanent home within the Practice Management section of CBA’s website. We’ll share some of the best tips each week here as Solo Tip Tuesday.
