Setting your participant name, chatting with attendees/presenter

Setting your Participant Name

During our earlier webcast, we realized that many users were signed with with their (default) sign in names as “ViewerXX” and we had the count up to “Viewer130” (rather, even more!!). This becomes a problem when you want to chat with the speakers/members of the community. Its hard to know your identity (unless you want the world to know who you are). Therefore, we advise you to change your screen name before the session begins. To do so,

  1. Select the ‘Participants‘ icon on the panel
  2. You’ll notice your name as ViewerXX (xx is the number)
  3. Hover over the name and you’ll see an option to change your name as ‘Change my name
  4. Click and set your name. That’s it! We’ll now know who you are 🙂

Chatting with a specific person/presenter/all during the session

If you want to post a question to the presenter in particular, or a particular attendee during the session, you can use the Chat window to do so. However, make sure you select the right person’s name before sending a message. This is where setting your participant name will come handy.

  1. Make sure you set your participant name before chatting with other attendees
  2. Select the ‘Chat‘ icon. You will notice a ‘@All’ section with a small arrow point next to it
  3. Click the arrow and select the person to whom you would like to send a message
