This article gives an overview of how to enable the hand raise feature for your KUDO Meeting and how participants can use it during the meeting.
Before the meeting
The Hand raise feature is a tool to organize participation and discussion during your KUDO Meeting. The feature is enabled by default when you schedule the meeting. To disable it, simply go to the "Advanced Settings" of your KUDO Meeting, scroll down until you find Hand Raise and toggle "Disabled".
During the meeting
This feature allows active participants to raise their hand to visually indicate that they would like to intervene.
|In "Open mic" meetings, all participants can raise their hand anytime. In “Request to Speak” meetings, only participants who were allowed to be active on screen, with microphone and camera accessible, are able to use the hand raise feature. Therefore, a passive participant must first request to speak. Once the request is approved by the host or operator, the participant becomes active and visible on screen. At that time, the hand raise button becomes available for that participant.|
When a participant raises the hand, a notification pops up in the "User List" tab on the right side bar menu, with the name of the participant raising the hand. If several participants raised their hand, the names appear in chronological order. All the attendees in the meeting can see that information from the “User List” tab.
Meetings hosts and operators can lower participants' and other hosts' raised hands if needed.
The hand raise feature is not available for participants joining from the KUDO mobile app.
If the hand raise feature is enabled, you are not able to hide the "User list" button from the meeting interface. The "User list" displays the list of participants connected to your meeting. It also shows which participants have their hand raised during the meeting.
