Allow Cohosts to start a poll and in Webex Meetings

Currently Cohosts cannot start a poll in Webex Meetings. To help Hosts focus on hosting the call, we would like to enable Cohosts to start polls on their behalf.

    Is the above description still current? This feature is very much needed for those of us working with large groups.

    I just had another Customer ask for this. This should not take 10 months and counting. Please implement this feature asap

    How has this not been implemented yet? Please, it's a job to get my presenters to be able to share their screens right, I can't ask them to also learn the polling controls.

    Using Webex meeting desktop application the organizer (Host) can designate a Guest user as co-organizer (coHost) after the session is active.

    Why it's not possible to do the same via API?

    Yes, please add this capability for cohosts. Host is too busy presenting to worry about polls and Cohosts can provide a much needed service by assisting with polls. This would enhance each meeting.

    Yes, this feature is very much needed. Some presenters aren't techy and can't navigate the polling.

    This would be incredibly helpful - takes way too long for the presenter to turn the ball back over, start the poll, then turn it back over to the primary presenter...

    Please make this a feature. Or have the ability for the host to give polling privileges to cohost while the meeting is in session.

    Agreed, it's a real hassle to try to do everything - what's the point of a cohost if they can't do anything
