Using the Q & A Panel
The presenter will be available for a Question-and-Answer (Q & A) session during the webinar. Using your Q & A panel, you will be able to ask questions during the presentations. Technical support questions will be answered by a member of the CRAE staff throughout the presentation. Questions to the presenter will be answered once they complete their presentation.

Your Q & A panel automatically groups questions and answers into these two tabs, which make it easy for you to check whether your questions have been answered:
- All-all questions and answers in a Q & A session during the event.

Asking a question in a Q & A session
During an event, you can send your questions to all or specific panelists in a Q & A session.
To ask a question in a Q & A session:
- Open the Q & A panel.
- On the Q & A panel, type your question in the text box.
- Optional. To edit your question, highlight the text you want to edit, and then right-click (Windows) or select ctrl and then click (Mac) to use the editing commands in the menu.

Checking the status of your questions
The auto-grouping of questions and answers and visual cues on attendees' Q & A panels make it easy for you to check whether a panelist has responded to your question.
Always check the My Q & A tab to quickly find out whether your question has been answered.
When a panelist is answering your question, an indicator appears under the question.
