Hand raising 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
Hand raising is available to attendees joining a GoToMeeting through their web browser, and we plan to roll it out to all users in a future update.
Hand raising requires the attendee to join the webinar or meeting using our software, if they are only dialing in by telephone they will not have the option. If you have attendees dialing in to the Panelist number but not joining via the software and entering their PIN, you will have trouble managing their audio. The best practice is to have these people join your webinar as regular attendees through our software and unmute them as necessary.
thank you for your answer, future update???
I think it will be too late for us.
We are waiting for a long time (2013) and we are forced to switch.
Browser-Web-Version is not stabile, slow and has problems with webcams. (Firefox ?)
@schiras Our web client is best in Chrome, but we plan to add Firefox support this year.
Hand raising will be coming to the desktop software this year as well, but I do not have an ETA I can share just yet.
@hollosch The current status of Hand-Raising functionality has not changed: Currently only compatible when using the GoTo Web App from a desktop computer.
