WebEx Meetings Co-Host

While it is possible to have an alternate host for a WebEx meeting, there can only be one host who can control screen sharing and muting. If the meeting host is the computer that is also used in an in-room setting/presentation, getting to meeting controls to mute a wayward audio can be problematic. Zoom meetings has this feature, (co-host) and it is very useful.

    There's a way to identify an "alt host" in the Outlook invite. However, the alt host doesn't seem to be able to access the Meeting Options in Webex--this means they can't activate File Transfer, allow chat, or allow/not allow participants video. The meeting can be started by the Alt Host (without the meeting option features). Once the main host joins the meeting, the Alt Host seems to lose functionality. It would be nice if both the main and the Alt host could have the same functionality.

    I think , co-host feature is needed by Webex Events

    Co-hosting is DEFINITELY needed for online classes. I am a support teacher and if the host (class teacher) gets kicked out hosting goes to a student, not ideal.

    A MS Teams channel meeting also allows any participant to mute other users, which is super helpful.
