Hosting a webinar where participants can only watch


Good day!


My organization is planning to hold a face to face event (seminar). But we are thinking of setting up a Zoom webinar to allow certain folks to watch the proceedings--and only watch, not chat, share their screens, or even see the names of other such attendees.


Would this sort of arrangement be possible?


Thanks in advance for your answers and inputs.

Hi @CDPSanchez yes you can do all of that.
- By default only the Host and Panelists can share their screen in a webinar.
- By default attendees cannot chat with anyone unless you enable it.

- The attendees will not see each others names in participant list either.

Hope that helps.
