What is a Co-Host

A Co-Host is a role that is designated by the creator of the session also known as the Host.  This allows one or more participants to assist in managing or run the session. They have full Host privileges in a session (see section: What can Co-Hosts do ). The Host and Co-Hosts work in tandem within the session. For example, if the Host “starts” a video then the Co-Host could “pause” or “stop” the video. Likewise, if the co-host opened a presentation in pane 2, but then the Host decided to invite an attendee to screen share, the last action taken overrides the previous action


Designating Co-Hosts

The Host can invite a participant in the role of a Co-Host by assigning the role under Session Attendees

  • this assignment will remain any time the user joins a session until the Host changes the role


promote this role on the fly within the session

  • Promoting the role of Co-Host within the session is temporary.  Once the user leaves the session for 2 minutes or more then returns or enters the session at a later date, the user enters as the role they were originally assigned

**Note: There is no limit to the number of Co-Hosts that can be assigned to a session.**

Click on Settings to the far right of the participants name in the Attendee List.  Then click "Make Co-Host".



The Host of the session appears at the top of the attendee list followed by the Co-Hosts then Attendees.
