Managing the microphone of an individual user
During a Session, you may want to mute the microphone of a specific user. For example, if you suspect that a user’s microphone causes feedback or if a user takes a phone call and forgets to mute their microphone. To mute a specific user, complete the following steps:
1. Open your menu or tablet, select the Users page, and then select the Users tab.
2. Identify a user and select their microphone icon.

3. In the Mute User dialog, select the check box to allow the user to unmute their microphone. Alternatively, clear the check box to lock their microphone as muted.
4. Select Confirm.

If you mute a user, you can select the microphone icon again to unmute them. However, if the user has chosen to mute themselves, you can’t forcibly unmute them. Instead, after you select their microphone icon, you see the options shown in the following image. You can either lock their microphone in a muted state, or request that they unmute themselves. If you request that they unmute, the user is shown a message to that effect.
