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
- Step Away
- Speak Louder/Softer
- Speed Up/Slow Down
A participant’s emoticon appears next to their name in the Attendee Pod.
We can disable “Raise Hand” feature in the meeting room.

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.
To restore that pod to original size, click on restore button which restores the pod.
Second :pods like video and share pod (when we are sharing something) have a button from where we can make it full screen.

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.

We can remove the duplicate users by following the below mentioned steps:
Click on the duplicate attendee which you want to remove from meeting in attendee pod.
Click on the first icon which has four bars present at the top of attendee pod -> then select “Remove Selected user”
