Managing Questions

Presenters can use the Q&A pane to review and respond to attendee questions. For each question that has not been either answered or dismissed without an answer, the Q&A pane identifies the person who asked the question and the time that the question was posted. You can view, print, and save a log of all questions that have been asked during the meeting, along with any answers provided.

Note: The Q&A log is only available in the Live Meeting service.

If multiple presenters are working together to monitor questions, each presenter's actions are automatically reflected in the other presenter's Q&A pane. For example, if one presenter dismisses a question, it is removed from every presenter's Q&A pane.
