When you select Private Only, Attendees will not be able to use Public Chat. They will only be able to send a Private chat to Presenters.

If you want an Attendee to speak or present material during your Webinar, you may promote them manually.

The attendee will receive the following notification that they have been removed.

You can also see that you will easily know what your audience is feeling as you progress by the emoji's at the top of the attendee list.

Remember that all Attendees in your Webinar are muted. In order for them to speak, you will need to promote them to Presenter.

Important: Webinar 500 and Enterprise does not offer Attendee Chat to improve the performance of your webinar. Our experience shows most Host connections cannot process hundreds of chats elegantly. Please advise Attendees to ask questions using the Q&A feature.
