Share Exhibits

Videoconferencing will also allow you to share your screen for all participants to view. We suggest you mark your Exhibits (for example Exhibit 1, Exhibit 2, Exhibit 3, etc.) then forward to our Calendar department at calendar@benchmark-reporting.com. Our calendar department will ensure that the reporter is provided a secure link to these exhibits. Once they are marked during the deposition, the reporter will be able to save and rename as needed.

Simply select Share Screen at the bottom of the window to get started. (see green icon below)
You can choose different options on what to share, such as sharing your full desktop or an individual application from your computer, you can also choose the option of sharing just the one file of the exhibits from a specific location in your computer as well.
