How to raise your hand in Teams meetings

Microsoft has added a new feature to Teams called Hands Up. This allows meeting participants to virtually “raise their hand” to get the attention of the other participants.

While in a meeting, select the hand icon (shown above) in your control bar. This will place a gold hand icon on your video feed to let the rest of the attendees know that you’d like to speak.

For more information on this feature please review Microsoft’s instructions.

If you have any questions regarding Teams please call the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040 or visit
