The raised hand enhancements are a game changer in the education space! Teachers can easily see who has raised their hand first, second, third, etc. all in the right order. Even cooler is that you can physically raise your hand or just select the raise hand emoji from your toolbar✋. Thanks for sharing awesome back to school features!
Thanks for sharing, @trickynikki ! While Slide Control is not really a very new feature, it's disabled by default so most customers are unaware of it that's why I always try my best to mention that whenever I get the chance. Most customers are really happy that this feature exists because it's very useful and they're excited to enable and start leveraging it.
