To Adjust Audio For All
The Host and/or Current Presenter can adjust audio for all session attendees at one time via the Attendee Menu Bar.
“Disable All Attendee Mics”: Mutes all session microphones. If using the Push-To-Talk button, the talk button disappears for everyone but the Host and/or Current Presenter.
And in the Attendee List the microphones are gray with three red dots.
“Turn off Push to Talk for All”: This option turns off the talk button for all session attendees and opens their microphones which is indicated by a gray microphone.
“Turn on Push to Talk for All”: This options turns the talk button back on for all.
“Enable All Attendee Mics”: This returns session attendees back to the previous state before being “disabled”. So, if Push-To-Talk was used, they go back to using Push-To-Talk. Likewise, if Push-To-Talk was off, they go back to an open microphone.
To Adjust Audio By Individual
The same settings as outlined above apply for adjusting audio at an individual level. Click on the microphone to the right of the person’s name.
