As a host, you have the right to:
- An event can be started and stopped at any time
- by using the tools in the security shield (located in the meeting control panel).
- Mutes and unmutes the Panelists’ audio
- as well as stops their video
- presentation to the Moderators and Attendees during the event
- enabling the Audio and Video privileges upon entry for Attendees
- Mute and unmute Attendees’ audio
- Respond to chats
A Alternative Host shares many of the same controls as the Host, so the Alternative Host can manage the administrative side of the event.
The Alternative Host has the following permissions:
- If the host is not able to join the event on time, start the event.
- Access the security shield from the meeting controls (located within the meeting controls).
- Moderators in the meeting must access the security shield.
- Enable audio and video privileges for attendees as soon as they enter the meeting room.
- Mutes and unmutes attendees’ audio as they enter the room
- as well as responding to chats
