The raise hand feature in webinar

Overview

The webinar raise hand feature enables participants, panelists, co-hosts and the host to raise their hand to indicate that they require anything from their host, co-host or other panelists. As a host, it may be useful to tell your attendees at the outset of the webinar how you want to utilize this feature. For instance, many webinar presenters utilize this functionality to determine whether the participant has a question and wants to speak unchallenged.

Note: you may deactivate the raise hand function and control participants that raise their hand if you are the webinar host.
