Managing the flow of conversation is critical to running great meetings. We’ve made it even easier for you to limit interruptions and keep everyone focused on the topic at hand!

If an attendee has something to say while someone else is speaking (like you – the moderator), rather than interrupt them and derail the conversation, they can now simply raise their hand from the Attendees Panel:

Once an attendee has raised their hand you will be able to see it next to their name, and they will pop to the top of the attendee list. The attendee list will maintain the order in which attendees have raised their hands. When you get to a good point you can come back to them and address what they wanted to bring up.

As the moderator you can also raise/lower other people’s hands for them, and as an attendee you can only raise/lower your own hand.

We hope this makes it even easier for you to get everyone’s great ideas into your meetings. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to use the feedback button in the app. Also, we’re always happy to hear from you directly — just schedule a 15-minute call with us using this link: https://calendly.com/instant-agenda/product-feedback
