Ability to select how names are organized in participant panel.(FirstName LastName or LastName, FirstName)

What is it? Host having the ability to select how names are organized in participant panel and have the ability to take a copy/snapshot of the participants to be pasted in a text file.

How should it work? 1.) Add a sort by "First Name" and by "Last Name" option under the Sort button next to the search field in the Participant panel. Currently, there is only sort by name or sort by raised hands. There could also be a button added called "Take Snapshot or Copy List".

Why is it useful? Teachers at schools use SIS systems to take attendance and it would be a lot easier if names could be sorted by last name. That would speed up the role call and verification step.

Who would benefit from it? Teachers/schools and other users who prefer seeing the last name first.

    Perhaps requiring two fields for a person's name when they sign into a Webex Meeting (1 - first name and 2 - last name) would allow for this ability to sort in the Participant's panel by first or last name. The ability to copy list would be very helpful.

    We recognize that we can search attendance files after the meeting, but if someone other than the host is responsible for pulling attendance, the non-host is forced to use the Participant list during the live meeting to pull attendance, and this sortability would help immensely during the meeting and being able to search by last name in the attendance reports as well.
