Chat (Pod)

You can use the Chat pod to send a text message to another attendee, to all presenters in the meeting (which includes the host), or to all attendees.

  • Be sure to select the message recipient before sending the message.
  1. At the bottom of the Chat pod, click the triangle button  and select a recipient:

    Select Everyone to send a message to all attendees.

    Select Presenters to send a message only to attendees with presenter status.

    Select the name of an attendee to send a private message to just one person.
  2. Click in the small box above the recipient and type your message.
  3. To send the message, do one of the following:

    Click Send Message .

    Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS).
  4. The message appears in the top portion of each recipient’s Chat pod.
  • To change text size, or clear messages

or
    2.  Select Clear Chat.
  • When you receive a text message, your Chat pod shows the sender’s name and the             message.
  1. If the message was sent to everyone, the sender’s name is followed by the message.
  2. If the message was sent only to you, the sender’s name is followed by “(privately)” and the text is colored red.
  3. If the message was sent only to the presenters, the sender’s name is followed by “(presenters)” and the text is colored green.
  • While you are logged into a meeting room, all the messages you send and receive remain in your Chat pod. When the host ends a meeting, the Chat pod is cleared. To preserve the chat history, a host or presenter can send out the contents of the Chat pod in an e‑mail message. Any attendee can copy and paste the contents of the Chat pod into another application.
