During the meeting, the information about the people in the meeting and the facilitator controls for changing this information can be found in the Attendees panel.

Meeting attendees can see everyone invited, listed as either Present or Absent.

See audio talking indicators and mute or hang-up a caller

If your meeting uses the integrated conferencing for audio, you’ll see a speaker icon next to each person on the call. The icon changes to reflect the person’s call status.

To mute a caller:

  1. Click to expand the list of Present attendees.
  2. Click the speaker icon to mute them

To hang up on a caller:

  1. Click on the name of the person you want to hang up.
  2. Click the “Hang up” button in the dialogue that appears.

Some people may dial-in to the call without entering their User ID. When this happens, you’ll see a third list in the Attendees panel for callers.

You can click on any phone caller to see more information about them. When available, you’ll see where the call is coming from, and the caller id from their phone.

If you know who the caller is, you can connect their call information to their attendee record. This will mark that person as Present (if they weren’t already) and connect the mute controls to their name on the Attendee list.

If you do not know who the caller is, you can hang up on them to remove them from the call.
