Raise Hand In Webinar Follow

Overview

The raise hand feature in Webinar allows attendees to raise their hand to indicate that they need something from the host or panelists. As a host, it may be helpful to inform your participants how you would like to use this feature at the start of the webinar. For example, many webinar hosts use this feature to know if an attendee has a question and would like to be unmuted to speak.
