Allow chat between panellists in webinar but no chat for audience


I'd like to be able to chat with another panellist (eg to suggest a question which might be asked, or to say 'could you go back to the 3rd slide'), but I don't want the audience to be able to chat. How can I keep chat switched on for panellists but not for the audience.

@JJ4 Once you get into the meeting, you will want to click on the "Chat" icon in your meeting toolbar. From here, you can choose who you want to send a message to such as to only "Hosts and Panelists" by hitting the "To" drop down. 

If you want attendees to chat with no one, hit the "..." option to the right of this small window and you can choose who attendees can chat with.
