Using the Collaborate Panel


Collaborate panel

Open the Collaborate panel at the bottom right of your session.


  1. Chat Enables you to exchange text messages with others in the session and express yourself using emoticons.
  2. Participant List: Provides a list of all Participants, Presenters, and Moderators in the session.
  3. Share Content: Displays for all attendees. Allows users with either the Moderator or Presenter role, to share files, an application or the whiteboard, or access any other the other great collaboration tools like polling.
  4. My Settings: Provides access to set your personal settings and for Moderators, the session settings.
  5. Open/Close Collaborate Panel

There are other Moderator controls available for each Participant under the participant panel. Moderators use the Moderator Controls feature to start a private chat, promote and demote elevated roles, make an attendee a captioner for live closed captioning content, and remove attendees from the session. To access these controls, hover over an attendee’s name in the Participant panel to display the ellipsis icon and implement your choice.
