Raising Your Hand
At any time during a meeting, you can "raise your hand" to get the chair's or presenter's attention. You might want to raise your hand if:
The chair can lower your hand after you have raised it, or you can lower your own hand. Other participants (including a presenter who is not the chair) cannot lower your hand.
Note You do not need to have permission to raise your hand.
To raise your hand, click the raise hand button at the bottom of the participants list or choose Actions - Raise Hand. (You can also right-click on your name in the participants list and choose Raise Hand from the shortcut menu that appears.) The raised hand button changes to a lower hand button, and a hand icon appears next to your name. Everyone in the meeting can see the hand icon.
To lower your hand, click the lower-hand button at the bottom of the participants list, or choose Actions - Raise Hand to remove the check mark. (You can also right-click on your name in the participants list and click Raise Hand from the shortcut menu that appears.) The hand icon next to your name in the participants list disappears.
You can sort the names in the participants list by the order in which participants have raised their hands. Sorting by raised hands is helpful if the meeting has so many participants that the participants list cannot display all of their names at once.
To sort by raised hands, click Show at the top the participants list and select by Hand Raise to sort by the order in which hands were raised. The name at the top of the list is the first person who raised a hand. To return the participants list to alphabetical order, click Name at the top of the list.
Tip You can see how many people in the meeting have raised their hands by looking at the hand icon in the status bar at the bottom of the Participant list.
