Participants raising their hand should float to the top of the participants panel

We just held a company-wide meeting with over 100 people in attendance. Whenever someone raised their hand it was not easily noticeable and I had to constantly scroll up and down through the list of participants to be able to see who has their hand raised. If raising your hand automatically made your name float to the top of the participants panel it would help greatly!

The feature: If a participant raises their hand, have that participant's name float towards the top of the participants panel to be easily seen by the host and presenter. While the host seems to always be first in the list followed by the designated presenter, any raised hands should follow directly under that.

Thanks for the consideration!

    Unfortunately, this function is not available in the web app (web browser). We have a great wish that this will be adapted.

    This came in 40.7, correct?

    Not sure why this isn't tagged as "planned" as it is listed in the What's New for 40.7. You can test this now with at least the Android Mobile client as 40.7 is what is the in Play Store now.

    Now waiting on the ability for the host to lower a raised hand.

    I agree, this would be very helpful. I also think the raised/lowered hands need a better design--it's hard for participants to tell if they have their hand raised or lowered (Hand outline turns blue if raised but remains black if lowered). I recommend having the entire hand turn blue (raised). This makes it easier for participants to distinguish the difference.

    Yes, other UC platforms have this feature and it is VERY handy to keep collaboration flowing
