Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro

You can use a Q&A pod to answer questions posed by attendees. When a presenter answers a question, the question and answer appear as pairs in the Q&A pod.

Here are some examples in which the Q&A pod is helpful:

  • During a large meeting, questions are added to a queue on the Q&A pod while the speaker presents. After completing the presentation, the speaker reviews the messages, applies a filter, and begins answering the questions.

  • A meeting moderator answers logistical questions but forwards technical inquiries to an engineer, who is presenting.

  • A meeting moderator returns certain replies to the sender only. Replies that are relevant to all attendees are sent to everyone in the meeting.

Add a Q&A Pod

  1. Within your Adobe Connect meeting, click on Pods
  2. Select the Q&A pod

View the Q&A Pod as Participants Do

By default, hosts and presenters see the Q&A pod with additional controls, but you can quickly see questions with answers as participants do.

In the upper right corner of the Q&A pod, click either of the following:

  • Presenter View - displays additional filtering and assignment controls visible only to hosts and presenters.
  • Participant View - displays the simple list of questions and answers that participants see and the ones received from individuals.
