Mute participants so they stay on mute until I decide other
I want the option to automatically mute everybody in a meeting and also disable to option to unmute for the user until I decide it's ok to unmute.
For instance, if I host a meeting and presenting something for a large set of people, I want it to be in broadcast mode until the last 10 or 5 minutes left of the presentation when we have Q&A. In that way you don't need to worry someone interrupting the presentation because they forgot to mute.
Chat can be active so in the end during the Q&A, me as a an host can leave the broadcast mode and enter the open mode meaning everyone can unmute and as questions freely.
I like this idea but would request the capability for the presenter to unmute someone who has their hand raised to allow them to ask their question or make their comment, then be able to mute them again or have them automatically return to muted when their hand goes down.
Please add your weight to this similar idea:
