Ask a participant to turn on their mic

As a leader or co-presenter, you can request a participant in the event to turn on their microphone. This allows the participant to choose if they are ready to be heard or want to keep their microphone turned off.

To ask a participant to turn on their mic in an event:
  1. In the Attendees panel, right-click the name of a participant. The context menu appears.
    Figure 1. Control participant audio
    Ask to start webcam
  2. Click Ask to turn on microphone. The selected participant receives a request message to turn their microphone on.

    Participant action: Dialog box to accept or deny microphone request

If the participant clicks Accept, then their microphone is turned on automatically. The participant can choose to turn the video camera off any time.

If the participant clicks Deny, then their microphone is not turned on.

If the participant does not take any action, then their microphone remains off and the dialog box closes automatically after 15 seconds.
