shortcut to mute guests on Rendezvous

Ok so I know this is not an everyday request.  I have the latest version of Wirecast and I run a show with four guests which are supposed to talk about politics without mentioning the name of any politician or anything they say.  When they do I am supposed to mute them for 1 minute.  But so far I can't find an easy way to do that quickly.  I see that I can mute someone of Rendezvous but to do that I have to switch to that screen and click on that person there are no shortcut keys that I can assign to my stream deck to do this task.  I also send the audio of the rendezvous to the virtual port on the PreSonus AR16c so I can send it to cubase to capture for a radio broadcast at the same time.  The mute on the panel only stops wirecast from playing the sound, it still is heard by the other guests on the panel and the host.  Is there a way to really mute someone so no one hears them.  And is there any way to assign a shortcut key or task to the stream deck to mute a guest on Rendezvous. 

I have shot 34 episodes and only needed to do it once, (and that was before we started using Wirecast) but we just had to cut and edit the clip.  Since we are having panelist from the street we are expecting alot more people doing it and needing to be muted. 

If you want to see two versions pre and after wirecast they are below:

    There's currently no shortcut to mute someone. We've generally had feature requests for expanding shortcuts as well as making them customer assignable. That would help with both keyboard and StreamDeck control.

    It sounds like you're describing a monitor to delay so you can "censor" someone. We've had feature requests for that if that's what you mean. Or do you mean muting someone after the fact (after the live comment goes out)?

    we are trying to mute them after the fact for 1 min as a punishment for breaking the rules.  It allows the other guest more uninterrupted time to get their point across where they can't answer back.  (aka adds drama and excitement)
