Sending a Text Message in the Chat Pod

You can use the Chat pod to compose a text message and send it to a specific participant, to all presenters at the meeting, or to all meeting participants. When you receive a chat message from another participant, your chat pod shows the name of the sender and the message.

Before You Begin

You must be in the web meeting room.

Procedure


Step 1 Locate the Chat pod.

Step 2 Click the text box to reveal a cursor.


Tip The text box is the smaller of the two boxes in the Chat pod.


Step 3 Type your message text.

Step 4 Choose a recipient in the To: drop-down menu.

Step 5 Click the arrow button next to the text box to send your message.


Troubleshooting Tips

All participants can send text messages in the Chat pod by default. If you cannot send a text message and have audience permissions, it is possible that a meeting moderator or presenter has disabled private chat for participants with your permission level. If this is not the case, contact your system administrator.
