Slide Control-Only One Panelist Displayed


Today during my practice session, I was the host and rehearsing with two panelists.


I was shared my PowerPoint, then clicked on "Slide Control" to pass along control to one of the two panelists.


To my surprise, when I clicked on Slide Control, only one panelist name appeared.


Why weren't all panelists listed?

Hello @ilze2 ,
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! Per this documentation I would say that the second panelist was not on the prerequisite version of 5.8.3 to perform this function. Therefore that could be why you were not able to pass the slide control to that panelist.

After testing out this function extensively, I've also found a non-documented requirement.  In order to give slide control to another participant, they need to meet these requirements:


1. Be on Zoom client version 5.8.3 or above

2. Be logged in to their licensed account

3. Be a member of the same account


If these three conditions are not met, the option to share slide control with all participants will not be present.
