A quick guide to Microsoft's SharedView solution, which aids with PowerPoint presentations, software demos, training sessions and document review.


If you've ever had to work with a team remotely, you probably understand how hard it can be to communicate. Microsoft's SharedView application tries to make it easier to share and collaborate across the Internet.
