We likely all know and use the Raise Hand feature to take informal polls or to signify to the host or presenter that you have a question, but this Pro Tip will detail how to use Raise Hand in a slightly different way.
In our own weekly team meetings, a fun question is posed to all and we each provide our answer. These questions range from “What is your current favorite binge-worthy show?” to “What is the best advice you’ve ever received?”, all as a team-building exercise. Even with a small team, it was always difficult to determine who had and had not yet answered the question. Thus, we instituted the Hands-Up approach.
After the question is posed, everyone in attendance raises their digital hand, which is found in the Reactions button on the desktop and web client (see our Support article for how to enable this feature for your meetings, as well as how to raise your hand on the mobile apps). As each participant provides their answer to the question, they lower their hand and choose the next person to answer. This method accomplishes 2 things for the team:
This speeds up the process, as each respondent takes less time choosing the next respondent, as well as ensuring that everyone responds.
Do you have other interesting uses of the Raise Hand or other meeting reactions? Share them in the replies below!
If anyone knows how to reach Bort in the Community, would you please try to help me reconnect. I sent him corrupted files of a zoom interview with Professor Chomsky and the files were corrupted. He had me send the files and a few weeks ago he said he would try to restore them. But now I can't get connected. Is there any way to use other communication than the community chat?
I really would appreciate some help or if someone knows how to reach him.
