Remove Raise Hand Button

I am hosting a webinar but do not want attendees to be able to see/use the "raise hand" button. How do I remove that option for a webinar?

 

Also, is it possible to prevent other panelists from seeing the # of participants/attendees and their names?

 

Thank you

On the bottom-right of the panelist, window click on the ... triple dots button and uncheck the Allow Attendees to Raise Hand. With this unchecked, they will not see it or be able to use it.

I don't believe that it is possible to hide the # of Attendees from the panelists.

That feature doesn't exist when I'm host or co-host. We have between 400-500 attendees every night and zoom bombers have utilized the raise hand feature to post their pərn. They raise and lower their hand over and over so it's difficult to catch and remove them. There's been a few times that the wrong person gets inadvertently removed. 

We have a limit of 1000 people and since there's so many people certain days, more zoom bombers are a real nuisance.

It's crazy that Zoom hasn't fixed this.  It seems so easy.  It should be in the security settings.

Greetings we really need some help with the hand raising.  They toggle it on/off at high speed so it's hard to eject them if you don't have experience to use the attendee list.  Zoom need a way to just turn off reactions.  PLEASE HELP!

Click the ellipsis (...) icon right underneath the Chat tab, then uncheck "Show attendee count." Both registrant and attendee numbers will now be hidden from attendees and presenters while they remain visible from the host's side in the Studio. That's it!

I don't think this is possible.

So Zoom has only made it possible for webinars?

Too bad. Zoom bombers are pretty foul at times putting bumps in the Road of Happy Destiny. They use the raise hand feature to place their selves right on the front page. It would be nice to be able to disable that feature. 

If they are on the "front page" then you are referring to Meetings. You CAN turn off the hand raise function in Settings.

I still have not found a solution.  We simply need to toggle off reactions during the first half of the meeting

You CAN turn off the hand raise function in a MEETING. In the Settings.

Hi, this solution only allows you to separate the "raise hand" buttom from all the other emojis, but it will not disable the "raise hand" feature.
