Sending messages to individual participants

You can send a short text message to a specific participant currently in the conference by choosing:

  1. Go to Conferences.
  2. Click a Conference name and then click on a participant's name.
  3. Click the Send message tab.

This message appears overlaid on the participant's view, even if the participant is viewing the conference via streaming.
