Slack has integrated Screenhero.  Glip needs the same functionality so that we can share screens with our colleagues.

You can do this by starting a video chat and then share your desktop. You can stop the video part if you only want to share a desktop or application screen. Have you tried that?

Brandon - I spoke too soon.  I thought I had tried what you had suggested before and wasn't thrilled, but we just tried it again and it works well.  I think that will get us what we need.  Thanks again for the reply.

actually there should not be a need to start video meeting and then share screen . The chat window must have a share screen icon , and by clicking share screen the desktop screen should be shared at one click. Creating a video meet is lenghty and time consuming process in Glip...

Absolutely.  SIMPLE screen sharing should have been a priority.  This is just a mess, tons of lost screen space, full screen defaults with exit from full screen hidden.  Skype is WAY BETTER.

Yes, but I was hoping for better integration like we have with Slack.  Thanks for the reply.

We would like screen sharing as well as the ability to ask for screen control.

It works but feels like launching another tool from GLIP (Ring Central Meeting) vs just instant screensharing within GLIP.  A much tighter integration would be helpful. Voting for this idea.

Having all of this integrated into one app (i.e.: Glip) would be huge. Toggling back and forth between apps when working with the same end-user isn't fluid right now. Also voted...I think having a Screenshare button next to the video chat button in Glip would be a great step.
