Attendees can use the Raise Hand feature as a signal to get the attention of the organizer, or to answer impromptu polls during a webinar. It can be used in multiple ways according to the discretion of the webinar organizer. Some use cases are listed below.
Possible use cases
How it works
Attendees can click Raise Hand on the webinar toolbar to use this feature. When an attendee raises their hand, the organizer sees a hand icon next to the name of the hand raiser in the attendee's list (see image above). The organizer can reply to their questions in Q&A or let them speak using Allow to talk.
To let an attendee speak:
To create a poll:
Click Webinars on the left pane.
Click the webinar for which you wish to create polls.
Scroll and Click Add poll in the Engagement section
4. Enter the poll question and select the type of poll you want to create:
5. Add your questions, answers, or ratings:
Multiple choice: Use a multiple choice poll to let your audience choose from a set of answers. You can add a maximum of five multiple choice answers and let your audience choose multiple answers in the poll.
Star rating: Use a star rating poll to let your audience indicate how much they like a feature, product, session and more. You choose to let the audience rate out of three, five, or ten stars. You can also define the star rating scales by entering the scale labels (optional).
6. Click Add. Repeat this for every other question you want to ask your audience.
To edit a poll:
Click Webinars on the left pane.
Click the webinar that contains the poll you need to edit.
Click the Edit icon next to the poll question to make any changes.
Once the changes are complete, click Update.
To conduct a poll during your webinar:
Click Polls on the webinar toolbar.
Click Start next to the question you want to ask. You can view the results as the audience responds and also publish results to the audience.
Enter your webinar window.
Select your audio option and click Share in the webinar controls and choose Share Material.
Webinar attendees can ask questions and receive answers through the Q&A tab. Organizers and co-organizers can view attendees' questions and answer privately to the attendee who asked the question, or make it public and share the information with all attendees. They can also add more information to an answer that's already given by clicking Answer button again.
To ask a question:
Answer, Set Priority, Assign Staff, Decline Questions:
