Raise your hand in a Teams meeting

Known Issue: Microsoft is aware that in certain circumstances when a participant raises their hand, the order in which they raised their hand may not reorder as expected. Loyola has brought this issue to Microsoft's attention on 5/19/2020. There is currently no workaround.

During a meeting, you can raise a virtual hand to let people know you want to contribute without interrupting the conversation. 

Select Raise your hand button in the meeting controls.

Button to raise your hand

Everyone in the meeting will see that you have your hand up. 

Raised hand notification

Meeting presenters will also receive a notification that your hand is raised, and they can lower your hand once you have had a chance to talk. 

Select Show participants to see a list of everyone in attendance. Anyone who has raised their hand will have an icon next to their name. When multiple people raise their hands, they will be listed in the order in which they raised them. 

Note: This feature is not available in one-on-one calls.
