Remove Raise Hand Button for Meetings

Is there a way to TURN OFF the Raise Hand Feature all together? I already removed the reactions button on settings, but now a lone Raise hand feature remains. I would like to remove this because we have some questions with selected people ready to answer and if the atendees raise their hand, the selected people will move out of the "host order" and place the people who raise their hand at the beginning on "gallery view". Thank you!

Hey @aamtz90 unfortunately, there is no setting that disables the feature of raising your hand in a meeting. Basically, a raised hand is prioritized by hand raised from first to last and placed in front of the host's window order. Suggest submitting your feedback to https:/zoom.us/feed and sharing your experiences for the option of 'raise hand'

If participants lower their hands, the window order will revert back to the host's order.

Hi @DavidM247 looking into our KB on Raising your hand in a webinar, If you're the webinar host, you can disable the raise hand feature and manage participants that raise their hand.
