If you are not able to attend one of your scheduled or Personal Room meetings, an alternate host can take over the host role for you. An alternate host is someone who has permission to host your scheduled meetings or Personal Room meetings when you cannot host them yourself. You can designate one or multiple alternate hosts for a single meeting, or for a series of reoccurring meetings.
The alternate host can start, manage, and record the meeting. If the alternate host records the meeting, the recording appears in the list of your recordings. You receive the email message with the link to the recording when it is available.
An alternate host cannot start a meeting from a Cisco TelePresence system or other video system.
When you specify alternate hosts from your WebEx site, depending on your site settings, you have two options:
You can choose to let anyone who has a host account on your site be an alternate host. This option is not available with WebEx Productivity Tools and Microsoft Outlook.
You can specify alternate hosts by entering their email addresses. With WebEx Productivity Tools and Microsoft Outlook, you select alternate hosts from your list of attendees.
You can make someone an alternate host only if that person already has a host account on your WebEx site. WebEx uses the following methods to notify each participant that you specified them as an alternate host:
A message on your Personal Room lobby page lets a participant know that they are an alternate host for the meeting.
The email invitation for each specified alternate host lets them know that they are an alternate host for the meeting.
If an alternate host joins the meeting before you do, the meeting starts automatically and that alternate host assumes the host role. Alternate hosts who join after the first alternate host do not automatically become the host. If you later join the meeting in progress, WebEx automatically restores the host role to you.
