In virtual events, there will be times that you will have disruptive attendees. Whether it be someone flooding the chat or someone who is being inappropriate. With Accelevents, you'll have the option to ban the attendees from the chat if they're being naughty!

Ban Attendees from Chat

If you want to stop a particular attendee from posting in the session chat, you can ban them from posting messages. Go to your virtual event hub and enter the session, then access the Attendees tab on the right side panel.

  • Look for the attendee

  • Click the 3 dot menu

  • Enable Ban

They will only know that they are banned when they try to send a new message. The message will be sent but only that attendee can see that message, and they will also see a message that they are currently suspended by the event admin from posting in the chat.

This ban will only be applicable to that particular session, so if you want to ban them on other sessions, you will have to do the same step for every session. The ban feature is not applicable to the lobby chat, expo chat or lounge chat.

If the attendee is still disruptive, you can take it one step further by doing removing the attendee from the session (only applicable to workshops)

Or removing the attendee from the event.
