Pause alert

When you Pause Session, a popup alert including the selected title, selected message and pause time remaining will be displayed to attendees.

Host, presenters and participants can click on the X in the upper right corner of the alert to close the popup. This will not affect the pause. If the Pause Session popup is closed, meeting functions other than the timer and recorder will be available to attendees. For example, attendees can send chats and indicate their status.
