Q. How to edit the Greeting Message in the social lounge?

The new social lounge update lets the host edit the welcome message to greet the users or share instructions during the live event. 

Step 1: Look out for “Configure the social lounge” on the top right corner of the lounge.

Step 2: Edit message in the pop-up and click on "Save." Your message is live.


Q.  What do "fixed" and "expanding" in table configuration mean?

When you are configuring the number of seats on the table, you may choose from the following two options:


1. Fixed: Total number of seats selected by you will be shown upfront to all the users in the social lounge. 

For example: If you choose the total number of seats to be seven on the table, then a total of seven empty seats will appear on the table immediately.

2. Expanding: In this option, the number of seats will increase by one every time a new participant joins the table.
  
For example:  If you choose a total number of seats to be seven, then a total of four empty seats will appear on the table immediately. When four people have joined the table, the 5th empty seat will automatically appear and so on until the table is full.




 



Q. Can I fix a table at 11 chairs?

No, fixed tables are only possible for up to 8 seats. So if your expanding table has >8 participants on the table, you cannot make it a fixed table.



Q. How to exchange Information/Details over Chat at the Virtual Table

Step 1: Click on the Chat icon.

Step 2: Send your message to all the participants available on the table.

Note: You won't be able to see past chat if joined in between.


Q. Can the event organizer restrict attendees from interacting with each other in the Social Lounge?


No, the event organizers can’t restrict attendees/participants from interacting in the Social Lounge. If you don’t wish your attendees to network, you can disable the social lounge.
