Note:

  • For a meeting participant to become a co-host, they must be in the meeting.
  • Co-hosts can turn Host Management off. Only the main host can re-enable Host Management for all other hosts.
  • Participants can’t be appointed or removed as co-hosts from Breakout Rooms. Participants must return to the main room to be granted hosting privileges.
  • Only the main host receives meeting info, like attendance reports or polling details, but can share meeting info with other co-hosts.
  • Host Management settings are saved for any recurring meetings or meetings that re-use the same meeting code. Appointed co-hosts will need to be re-appointed for any recurring meetings.
