Webex CoHost cannot END meeting

We need an option for CoHosts NOT being able to end meetings.

It's the first couple of days or us using the new CoHost features, and I have already had some cohost goof and end the meeting, kicking everybody out, ending recording, and everything that comes with the killing/murder of meetings. And they deny it like children...

It would be IDEAL,
If when a CoHost chooses to END a meeting, it must be approved by the Host,
If under Participant Privileges, I can have a checkbox to permit/deny CoHosts to End Meeting. (Preferably the Ending a meeting would have to be ENABLED. So it would be DISABLED by default)

I'm dealing with grown adults, and we've used Cisco Webex Meetings for over a year, and yet... people do not understand.

    It's a glitch. Your people aren't children. They have the option to "leave" or "end for all" and no matter which they choose, it's ended for all.

    Adding support. I host a ton of meetings and sometimes I am running late I want the participants to start the conversation without me. But when the co-hosts leave, they choose 'end meeting for all' and its really inconvenient.

    Can we atleast have a pop-up which says, if you choose end meeting for all, the meeting is closed. That way, there is atleast a reminder that they should say leave the meeting and NOT end meeting for all.

    It is better not to allow a cohost to End the meeting. I can't imagine a scenario where a cohost needs to End the meeting as long as the host is in the meeting.

    I am adding my support for the co-host not be able to end the meeting. We have had it happen several times, a presenter leaves before the rest of us and ends the meeting.

    Adding support to this request. In meetings where attendees are not permitted to unmute, cohost role is used for speakers so they can still manage their own mutes. Cohosts still accidentally end the meeting for all rather than just leaving themselves when dropping early, killing the meeting for all.

    Not sure cohosts even need to have the capability to end the meeting; shouldn't the person with the host role be able to end the meeting when needed? Or at the very least the attendees can leave the meeting on their own when it ends.
