Cohosts without End for All option

We hold a number of meetings with a large audience where it is necessary to force mute the attendees. We, therefore, set our guest speakers as cohosts so that they can control their own mute button. However, many times, they end the call for all since a cohost has this ability. We need a way to disable this ability for some cohosts or create a new "speaker" role where they have the ability to mute/unmute themselves but not have other cost controls. Better yet, make the available host functions selectable for this role.

    We are removing the ability for co-hosts to end meetings in the coming months.

    Agree. There needs to be some sort of "mute-safe" role without the ability to end the meeting.

    I find this suggestion absolutely integral for Webex meetings with a large audience. In addition to that, if it can also be added as a 'privilege' to the suggested "Speaker role"-- the privilege to be able to see everybody in grid view even when a Host/Cohost has enabled the "lock attendee view on stage only" for everybody else ( for attendance/behaviour monitoring purposes).
