Not so much a question as a feature request. (I thought we had a category for that.)
Please add the ability for an organizer to allow a specific
panelist (or all panelists) to view ALL questions.
Currently, must promote them to Organizer, which gives them the power to END the meeting. I always warn them
when it's necessary to do this. I point out Exit Webinar vs End
Webinar should they need to withdraw from the session. It has still happened by accident.
It also gives them too many other powers, like ability to dismiss people. Mostly it works out okay, until the curious "organizer" starts clicking on options!
We have used GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting for over 5 years and love the webinar experience. However, we also have to use other webinar companies as well to cover the areas you don't (hosted videos, stand alone testing, etc.). We wanted to use GoToWebinar 100% for all our webinars but the ability (on non-ability) for the attendees to communicate or even view the questions asked has kept up from the switch. We would use GoToMeeting that has this functionality but we have over 25 attendees in all of our sessions. I am requesting for there to be a choice while setting up a class (or in-class) to let the attendees view the question or chat dialogue box. It is available in GoToMeeting. Why not GoToWebinar?
Not sure if anyone else uses this strategy, but during our webinars, I (the organizer) appoint one panelist (the "filter guy") to delegate questions to the rest of the panel. I assign all questions to that the "filter guy", who then reads the questions aloud during a Q&A session at the end of the presentation, and the other panelists can answer.
Ideally, we'd like to be able to assign questions to ALL panelists, so they can see the questions and formulate their answers in advance. Is there a way to do this, or is one in the works?
Currently, our workaround is this: the "filter guy" can copy and paste the question into a private chat message to the panelist he wants to delegate the question to, so that panelist can be ready to answer when the Q&A time comes. Thanks for any help you can give!
