Thread Name: Tech: Hints for Zoom Singaround Hosts
Subject: RE: Tech: Hints for Zoom Singaround Hosts
Noreen found more tricks with the participant search, and it made yesterday's singaround so much easier.

I found the "find a participant" box on the list of participants in the Seattle Singaround Sunday night. And then when taught a class Monday morning and opened the Mudcat Singaround in the afternoon, alas! It wasn't there! So, I thought I was going to have to search through the bowels of Zoom to find a check box to turn the search feature on. Not so, when there were about ten participants in the Mudcat Singaround, the search box appeared.

We number all participants so we know what order they're singing it, but there seemed to be no sense to the order of people on the participant list. Midway through the Singaround Noreen discovered that when she clicked the title bar of the participants list, the participants were displayed in order. It's important to be consistent in your numbering practices - I'd recommend preceding single-digit numbers with a zero.

It had been so stressful for me to figure out who was going to sing next. Now that I know about the search box and the trick for putting the list in order, hosting the Singaround was hardly any stress at all!


JHW - what did you want to be left out from? I don't think you're on the email list for the Mudcat Singaround. Was there something else?
