During: Nonverbal feedback and Meeting Reactions

Managing Nonverbal Feedback and Meeting Reactions (hosts)

Nonverbal feedback and meeting reactions will be displayed in each participant's video panel, as well as next to their name in the participants panel. Click the Participants  button to see a full list of participants and their nonverbal feedback and meeting reactions.

In the participants list, you can view and manage feedback using these features:

  • If a participant clicked on a nonverbal feedback or meeting reaction icon, you'll see that icon beside their name.
  • The number above each nonverbal feedback or meeting reaction icon shows how many participants have clicked on that icon.
  • If a participant clicked Raise Hand, you can lower their hand by hovering over their name and clicking Lower Hand.
  • To clear all nonverbal feedback at once, click Participants , then , then Clear All Feedback
  • Emoji (meeting) reactions will disappear after 10 seconds, while raise hand and nonverbal feedback, such as YesNoSlow down, and Speed Up, will be persistent and must be manually removed by the participant or host.
