Nonverbal Feedback During Meetings Follow

Overview

If the meeting organizer enables the Nonverbal feedback feature, meeting participants can place an icon beside their name to communicate with the host and other participants without disrupting the flow of the meeting. For example, clicking Raise Hand places the raise hand icon beside your name to simulate a hand raise.

All participants can see the icons that everyone else has chosen. In addition, the host sees a summary of how many participants are displaying each icon, and has the option to remove all feedback.
