Disabling “Raise Hand” Feature

Emoticons (status options) are a way for participants to communicate with the meeting host or presenter.  Emoticons can be used to give a host or presenter feedback on their presentation- such as applause, requests to speak louder /slow down.  They are also used to ask and answer questions.  Adobe Connect includes the following emoticons:

  • Raise Hand
  • Agree/Disagree
  • Step Away
  • Speak Louder/Softer
  • Speed Up/Slow Down
  • Laughter
  • Applause

A participant’s emoticon appears next to their name in the Attendee Pod.

We can disable “Raise Hand” feature in the meeting room.

 

Below are the steps to disable the Raise Hand feature.

Setting pod in meeting to full screen

Full screen is a good feature when presenter wants the attendees to pay attention to a specific pod.  This helps in increasing the engagement of participants.

There are two ways to make a pod full screen.

First -The Maximize button in pod options when clicked makes the pod full screen into the meeting room.

Delete duplicate users from “Attendee Pod”

Attendee Pod has the information about all the attendees.  Sometimes there are duplicate attendees in the meeting which is caused by user error when a user opens two instances of the meeting room.  In the below screenshot, we can see that a participant with the name “Adobe” appears twice in the meeting.

We can remove the duplicate users by following the below mentioned steps:

Step.1

Click on the duplicate attendee which you want to remove from meeting in attendee pod.
