If the tool just maintains a list of those that joined - in the order they
join - it should meet all these criteria. The chair should also be able to
ADD names to the list. (they can add -phone only after so they know they
can't raise hands.) (It could also log when they signed on and when they
signed off - helpful to know someone left - and when - if you need to update
Criteria to meet
- who is on
- who just joined
- who joined later and might not know something they need to
- a list for attendance (Chair adds phone-only callers)
- was the person still on the call when we discussed xxxxx near the end.
There will be a need for some talk - since those that join the call don't
necessarily join the hands up utility. But it should cut WAY down on it
and eliminate most all of it. Also - we can ask people who sign in by
phone only to announce themselves. Everyone else can just do it by signing
on to the hands up utility.
