As a facilitator, you can guide collaborators through activities while keeping the activity engaging with the Summon feature. Control the virtual room with ease and confidence. Ensure collaborators (especially first-time MURAL users) are following along when presenting or providing directions to making your meetings more productive, streamlined, and engaging.

To ensure that your participants don't break away you can "Take control", this essentially locks the screen for collaborators -- they cannot stop following or add any content until the facilitator releases them.

Here's how: 

  1. Click on your avatar on the bottom of the canvas

  2. Select "Summon everyone" 

  3. To ensure that collaborators do not break away or edit content select “Take Control”


  • You must be set as a facilitator by a mural admin in order to access this feature.

  • Unless you select the Take control feature collaborators can break away from "summon" by moving around.

  • Summon will not appear unless there are other participants in the mural.
