 Happy Lunar New Year! For those of you who celebrate, we hope you’ve been making good use of our LNY objects to bring some extra good luck and prosperity into your Spaces.

🙋‍♀️ Request to Lead

Want to give a tour to someone new or let your coworker know you’re ready to meet? From the Participants list, click the name of the person you want to lead. Their info card opens, where you can select Request to Lead. Alternatively, you can right click on their character to bring up a context menu with the same option.

After you send a Request to Lead, a pop-up displays on that person's screen, asking them if they would like to follow you. A preview image in the pop-up shows them where you are so they know where they will go if they accept.

A Gather office with a pop up modal that says, "Request to follow, Jean would like to lead you around the Space. Would you like to follow?" with an option to decline or accept.
