Using Comment Tracker & the Lower Third Together

The Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third app is commonly used together with the stand-alone Comment Tracker app. Here's a tip for using them together well.

The Comment Tracker adds great value to your HOA by allowing you to bring live viewer's comments into your show.

The stand-alone Comment Tracker tool (the green 'double bubble' version, not the one from the Toolbox) is used a lot since it allows the comments from HOA Events to be tracked where the version of the Comment Tracker that is part of the Hangout Toolbox does not.

The Comment Tracker Tip – load up the (1) Toolbox/Lower Third 1st and then turn on the (2) Stand-alone Comment Tracker tool. When done in this order, the display of the Comments (as shown here) will not include the lower third image.

If you want to add the branding of your lower third on top of the comments displayed, then turn on the comment tracker first, and there is a good chance the comments displayed will also show the lower third graphic as well (but it may cover up some of the comments).

Thanks to +Denise Wakeman for her cameo here 😉
You can get the stand-alone comment tracker from this link: it is created by +Gerwin Sturm … Thanks Gerwin!
