How to moderate an event hosted on Hopin

  • Updated


During an event, organisers and moderators are able to moderate the content according to the event guidelines. The following actions help moderators and organizers moderate an event: 

  • Muting an attendee in chat, polls and Q&A (organisers only)
  • Blocking an attendee for the event (organisers only)
  • Deleting chat messages (organisers only)
  • Moderating Q&A (organisers and moderators) 
  • Allowing attendees to share audio and video (organisers and moderators)

Here is what you can do as a Moderator:

Moderating Q&A 

Organisers can enable Q&A moderation from the Event Dashboard > Venue > Venue controls. When enabled all questions need to be approved to appear in the Q&A tab. Only event organisers can approve and delete questions in the event-wide Q&A, while Session/Booth moderators can approve and delete questions in their respective Session/Booth Q&A sections.

To approve a question hover over it and click on the check icon.


Allowing attendees to share audio and video 

When an attendee requests to go on-screen with their audio and video, their name and profile picture appear under the Moderation Panel at the bottom left. 


The moderator can hover over the profile picture of an attendee they would like to add on-screen and click the "+" sign to add that attendee on-screen.


The moderator can take off speakers from the Session screen or the speaker's screen share by clicking the three-dot by the speaker or screen share and click Remove.
