The Request to Lead feature lets you ask permission to guide someone in the Space. If they accept, their character will find you in the Space and attach to you so that you can lead them and they don't have to navigate.
Tip: The Request to Lead feature is helpful when offering tours of a Space or to support neurodivergent guests or others who cannot navigate easily in Gather!
Open the Participants panel and search for the person you wish to lead. Select their name, and on their info card, select Request to Lead. (You can also open this info card by clicking on a person's name in their video preview.)
You can also right click on a person's avatar and select Request to Lead.
The person you've requested to lead sees a pop-up, which asks them if they'd like to follow you and shows them a preview of where you are in the Space. They select Accept if they'd like to be led. They will automatically be taken to wherever you are in the Space, and they won't have to navigate while you lead them.
To stop following someone, press an arrow key on your keyboard.
Note: Request to Lead isn't available on mobile yet. We are exploring these features for the future!
