Can you have attendees in GoToWebinar talk or text "chat" to each other during a live 500 attendee event?? If you can't - PLEASE - change it so they can. It is terrible that there is no way to have the attendees interact with each other - We have a weekly webinar on the same day, and same time EVERY week. Our clients like to be able to come to the event and interact with each other - and with the GoToMeeting there is no way to do that. Only the organizer can see the "Questions" from attendees. Let us know if there are plans to FIX this, thanks!
Yes, GTW folks: How do we do enable chat in smaller GTW sessions?AshC had said above, "We do have Chat available for up to 200 attendees however, with GoToTraining, and 100 attendees with GoToWebinar if you feel that you need this function for your broadcasts to smaller audiences."Sharon had asked here how we could do that, almost a year ago but no one has replied. I, too, would like to know. And it seems Carla, the next commenter, would as well. We hear the concerns you have for disabling it by default, but we would love to be able enable it by our choice as Ash was indicating.
carehart - Glenn is good about taking suggstions from these dicusssions back to the design team.
The big issue here is that GoToWebinar was never designed to be a tool where the attendees chatted, and in the 10 years I have been a GoTo user, I have never needed that feature.
carehart - I agree this would be a good feature for many GTW users.
I remember one time last year when we did need the audience to chat during a webinar and we used Padlet. This worked well for the live audience in the auditorium as well as the folks attending via GTW.
Hi @carehart - we do hear you! I too agree that what you are suggesting would be a useful feature to have available for organizers to utilize if they wish. I have tagged your recent post as an idea and it will be passed along to engineers for consideration. Thank you for the feedback!
I could see some wanting this option but our group wouldn't so as long as it was a feature we could turn on or off, that's great. For our CE activities we don't see the need for attendees to communicate with eachother.
