Add Q&A to webinars and meetings

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

If you're hosting a structured meeting, like a webinar or a meeting with a large audience in Microsoft Teams, add the Q&A app to organize how attendees ask questions.

Try it!

Before the webinar

  1. Go to your meeting invite and select EditAdd a tab (+).

  2. Search for the Q&A app or select it if it's already available, and then select Add.

  3. Choose webinar settings to give attendees specific permissions.

  4. Select Moderate attendee conversations to let organizers decide which questions to publish to the Q&A feed.

    Note: If there's anyone you want to be a moderator, be sure to make them an organizer for the webinar.

  5. When you're ready, select Save.

During a webinar

Attendees can submit questions while a webinar's in-progress. On the Q&A panel:

  • Under the In review tab, review submitted questions in a private moderator view. Choose and publish which questions you'd like attendees to see.

  • Under the Publish tab, view published questions.

  • Under the Dismissed tab, review any irrelevant or duplicate questions.

  • For published questions, select All conversations > Unanswered Questions to filter and address them.

    • Respond to a question and post it when you're ready.

    • Once posted, all attendees can view a posted question and its response.

  • Choose an important post to pin it to the top of the Q&A panel so everyone can see it.
