This article covers tools that hosts/moderators have during a Bevy Virtual Meetup event to moderate chat and other attendee features. To learn more about the list of new features, please see here
Who can moderate an event?
If you are a Chapter team member, you have moderation controls by default. Alternatively, hosts/moderators can promote other attendees to moderators during the event.
Mute attendees with presenter mode
To mute all attendees who have Presenter mode enabled, click the Mute icon next to All participants in the right sidebar Participants view
Due to security concerns, it is not possible to enable audio for the presenters.
Turn off the camera for all attendees with presenter mode
To turn off the camera for all participants who have Presenter mode enabled, click the camera icon besides All participants in the right sidebar Participants view.
For security reasons, you can't turn the camera on for the presenters.
Remove an attendee from the event
- Within the event, click the Attendees tab.
- Click the drop-down arrow next to the attendee's name.
- Select Remove from event to ban the attendee from your event.
Upon removal from the event, participants will receive a message informing them of this situation, such as the image below. This task can't be reverted for the event, but will only last for 24 hours.
Delete a chat message
Hosts/moderators may delete any messages except those from other hosts/moderators.
Attendees can only delete their messages.
- Open the menu for the message you want to delete.
- Click Delete, and then confirm the change.
Block chats for an attendee
As a host/moderator, you can block an attendee from sending messages for 24 hours, either from the chat or the participant list.
To block from the chat:
- Open the menu of a message sent by the person you want to block.
- Select Block chat.
To block from the participants list:
- Open the menu of the participant you intend to block chat for.
- Select Block chat.
When the attendee has the chat blocked, they will see an unauthorized message when posting a new message to the chat
The Unblock chat option can be found in the participants list for the target participant to unblock the chat.
About profanity filtering
The platform includes filtering for typical profanity in English and select words in other languages. If an attendee submits a message with inappropriate words in it, the system immediately deletes the message. The user's message will instantly disappear.
