Anonymous Questions and Polls in Meet

There are a couple of default settings in Meet that your licensed Teaching and Learning Upgrade or Plus instructors will need education on. These are settings which admins cannot change in the Admin console. The instructors need to address these with each Meet themselves. The settings relate to Allowing anonymous questions in Q&A and anonymous polls.

The issue is that the default settings for these features are not set to our recommendation for education. This offers a great opportunity for you to bring this to your instructors' attention.

Allow questions in Q&A

Issue: In Host controls, Allow Questions in Q&A is OFF by default.

When toggled ON, the allow anonymous questions (Q&A) is automatically set to ON. This means that when questions are allowed they are anonymous by default.

Recommendation: To allow questions that are not anonymous, toggle allow anonymous questions (Q&A) to OFF.
