Is it possible in a webinar to have the Chat default be to All? Right now, it defaults to Hosts and Panelists and attendees need to remember to change to All. We would like this reversed for webinars, the default is Chat comments are visible to all unless Hosts and Panelists is specifically chosen. Our attendees often forget to change the selection and so the discussion is being lost.
This option can be set in the Zoom Web Portal. I've attached a screenshot to provide some guidance. It's in Settings -> In Meeting (Basic) -> Webinar Chat section.

Thanks. This sets the permissions, but it doesn't change the default in the chat. What I'm looking for, if an attendee clicks on chat, it's already set to send to all participants. Right now, the default is hosts and panelists and the attendee needs to click the drop down and change to all. Our attendees keep forgetting to do that, so the messages go only to the host.
