The Chat feature enables the Presenter and selected attendees to communicate directly with each other or to send broadcast messages to all attendees. An attendee can send a chat message only if the Presenter has granted the attendee permission to view the Attendee Roster. The Presenter also has the authority to determine whether a specific attendee can receive Q&A messages during a chat session.
Typically, a Presenter uses the Chat feature after completing a presentation to address questions that attendees have raised during the presentation.
To initiate a chat message:
- From the Attendee Roster, click an attendee's name.
To broadcast a message to the entire group, click All.
- From the drop-down menu, select Chat.
The chat window is displayed.
- Enter your message in the Message text box.
- Click Send.
If you do not see the Attendee Roster, the Presenter has not granted you permission to initiate chat messages.
As the Presenter and attendees contribute to a chat session, all questions and answers are displayed in the Chat History window. If you want a record of a chat session stored as a text file, click Save after the chat session is finished.
