Meeting Ettiquette

Mute Background Noise

If you are joining an audio conference using your computer, you can use headphones or a headset instead of speakers to prevent feedback.
If background noise, such as typing or a barking dog is detected from your microphone, you will be prompted to mute it.

Select Disable noise detection if you prefer not to see these notifications.

Mute or Unmute Yourself

As a participant, to ensure that noise from your location is not disrupting the meeting for everyone else, in the Participants panel, select Mute or Unmute to mute or unmute your own microphone.

We ask that you endeavour to stay on mute unless you are speaking - particularly in meetings with many participants.

Raise your hand

A way of getting the presenters attention is to “raise your hand”
Click on Chat.

In the “Send To” field select “Presenter” and type your question/comment.

The presenter will see a yellow flag that indicates a question has been asked.
