Unable to Join Before the Host and Present Documentation in the Meeting

Unable to join before the host and present documentation in the Meeting.

'The first attendee to join will be the presenter' option is not working for all the users.

Can attendees have the ability to join before the host and share?

Allow attendees to share content before I join the meeting as the host?

How do I enable 'The first attendee to join will be the presenter (Meetings)' option in Site Admin?

 

Note:
 

The instructions in this article apply to Cisco Webex Meetings only.

For the Host to allow the first attendee to join a meeting and be the presenter of the session requires the option for 'The first attendee to join will be the presenter (Meetings)' to be enabled on Site admin.
 
 To enable first attendee to join will be the presenter option:
  1. Sign in to Webex Site Administration and go to Configuration > Common Site Settings > Options.
  2. Scroll down to Cisco Webex:  Webex Meetings:Webex Training section, select the The first attendee to join will be the presenter (Meetings) check box:

If 'Allow Participants to Share in meetings' is disabled in site admin:
  • The option for The first attendee to join will be the presenter will not appear when scheduling your meeting. The Anyone Can Share option will not be available in the Participant menu in the meeting
Attendees may still share if you pass them the Presenter ball, however they may not share on their own without getting presenter rights.  For help passing presenter rights, see: WBX1800 - How Do I Pass the Presenter Role to an Attendee or Participant?

If the setting 'Allow Participants to Share in meetings' is enabled in site admin:
  • You may choose to enable or disable attendee sharing for your meetings. By enabling the setting, you give attendees the ability take over sharing at any time. Attendees who choose to share while another person is sharing will see a warning that they will be stopping the current shared content.
