This was originally posted in our old community that had a Me Too feature. Here you can give the Idea or comment a Kudo by clicking on the thumbs up icon.
We could use the Raise Hand feature. We just started using GTM about a week ago and there is no Raise Hand feature we can find. One would expect a product that enables remote meeting attendance would have a feature like that built in.
Any update on this? The feature has been requested for years. It's really hard to explain to people why we should use GoToMeeting over the privacy hole laden zoom product, when such a basic feature is not available. It also makes it difficult to hold meetings.
And while gotowebinar has the hand raise feature, dial-in participants have no way to raise their hand nor are they displayed in the attendee list, so we can't even control their mic.
Seems to be a major disconnect here between basic needs/functions and what LogMeIn is offering 😞
I've seen the request for 'Hand Raise' posted many times as a feature request for GoToMeeting. I'm a new user to GoToMeeting. Although I like the GoToMeeting attendee interface and other features, some basic functionality features are lacking compared to Zoom, at approximately the same price point. Most people consider the 'Raise Hand' feature to ask a question in a web meeting as basic functionality. It would benefit GoToMeeting to include that as a basic feature , without having to move to the much more expensive gotowebinar product. It's good to be competitive. Thank you.
We have few GoToMeeting accounts and the lack of a feature to raise the hand is making running a meeting unnecessarily complicated. We have been using "open your mic" when you wish to have the floor but it often causes disturbance to hearing the one speaking. Chat is being used for what it is meant to be used, sending short messages when you wish to support or comment someone without asking the floor. "Raise your hand" feature would be really great to have, basic thing in a meeting. Hope we will have this soon cause otherwise the platform is good. Somewhat surprised that this kind of basic meeting habit has not landed here while it exists in Zoom, Microsoft Teams and some other platforms.
