Nonverbal Feedback During Meetings Follow

Overview

If the meeting organizer enables the Nonverbal feedback feature, meeting participants can click an icon to provide nonverbal feedback to the meeting host and to each other. These icons provide the host with information from the participants without disrupting the flow of the meeting.

Note:  After November 4, 2017 enabling Zoom features uses Tiered Settings. Previously configured settings for the Nonverbal Feedback feature will continue to work in the same way. Changes made by an administrator might affect meetings and webinars that use this setting.

Change the nonverbal feedback shown next to your name by clicking a different icon. You can also remove the current icon by clicking it again, so that no icon displays next to your name.

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.
