Participants and observers


Hi,  Can I have a meeting where there are participants and observers?  The participants can interact and ask questions and the observers are able to only watch.  Would I be able to have them register for the meeting and separate participants vs observers.


Thanks for your help

@Wbritto what you are describing is essentially a Webinar where the panelists can be seen and heard, but attendees can only hear (and chat if you enable them to).   The closest you can do in meetings is to mute everyone and not allow them to unmute without asking, then selectively unmute those you would like to speak during the meeting.
