Getting started

Eraser is offered as the default whiteboard option in many popular virtual offices like Gather, Kumospace, Work Adventure, and MetaLife. Here are some basic things do know about using Eraser in virtual offices.

Creating an Eraser file

There are two ways to create Eraser files:

  • Created in the virtual office (simple)
    • You can generally create from directly within virtual offices as part of "map building".
    • These files lack certain share settings (e.g. email invite, read-only) and features (e.g. comments)
    • Refer to your virtual office's documentation on how to create Eraser files from their platform. For example:
  • Created in Eraser (advanced)
    • You can create Eraser files from Eraser after creating an account
    • Depending on the virtual office, you may be able to swap out the URL of your virtual-office-created whiteboard with an Eraser-created one
    • These files will have the full feature set of Eraser enabled, such as:
      • Email invites
      • Read-only files
      • Folder organization
      • Comments
    • You can create files by clicking "New File" in the Eraser dashboard

Returning to an Eraser file

In a virtual office, you may sometimes lose track of which whiteboard was placed where. Worry not, as long as you are logged in, Eraser will keep track of all the Eraser files you've viewed.

On the Eraser dashboard, click on "Viewing History" to see viewed files in reverse chronological order.


Sharing an Eraser file

You may want to copy the link to an Eraser whiteboard in a virtual office for future reference or to share with colleagues.

  1. Click on "Save to Eraser" to create an Eraser account (or "Sign In" if you already have one)
  1. Click on "Share" in the upper right, then "Copy Link"
