There are two separate sets of tools for participant reactions and feedback. Reactions can be found at the bottom toolbar during a Zoom meeting. The other group is located at the bottom of the Participants panel, which we will call “Responses“.
Responses and Reactions behave differently, so we have put together a table that compares and summarizes these feedback options and how they function.
|Location (to give feedback)||Reactions button in the Zoom toolbar||Participants menu|
|Location (to view feedback)||Participant video windows||Raised hand will appear in the participants menu and participant video windows.All other responses appear only in the participants menu.Host can see how many participants choose each response.|
|Clearing Feedback||Disappear automatically after 5 seconds||Remain until the participant or host clears the responses. Responses can be clearing by clicking the response again. The host will also have a “clear all” button in the participants menu.|
|Host vs Participant||Same reactions are available to everyone||Host can not raise their hand. All other responses are available to host and participants.Host can clear all responses. Participants can only clear their responses.|
|When to Use||Quick, informal feedback||Designated Q&A time and/or if you would like all participants to respond.|
|Feedback Options||Host View Participant View|
