Thread Name: Tech: Hints for Zoom Singaround Hosts
Subject: RE: Tech: Hints for Zoom Singaround Hosts
The biggest problem and greatest stress that I have in hosting a singaround, is keeping track of the participants and making sure each one has a chance to sing. Renaming all the participants with a number before the name helps a lot, but the participants keep moving around on my screen and on the list of participants. If there were a way to put participants in numerical order, that would help a lot. Is there a way to lock the location of people on my screen, or to keep them in order on the screen or on the list of participants?

Mysha, as far as being dictatorial, what I mean is that I have to keep control of things so we do mostly singing and limit conversation. I've been to singarounds where people talk for five minutes or more between each song, and it's usually just a very few people who dominate the conversation.
