Webex Room OBTP Enhancement to become Host

My enhancement request would be a green Start button on the Touch 10 when OBTP is enabled for the room. With Webex Hybrid Calendar Service, the Room should know who the host is that scheduled the meeting. Also, the room should also recognize the host as they enter the room via Proximity (as long as the host has the Webex app running). Webex should be able to match the two and create a Start button so that the host can Start the meeting via Touch 10.

    The simple presence of a proximity-paired user is not enough for Authorization to Start a meeting on behalf of that user. The user could simply be in proximity of the device or could have walked out of the room. Providing host privileges without the user performing the join themselves is a security risk.
