Make cohost

You can assign an attendee the cohost role during a scheduled meeting, a Personal Room meeting, and an enhanced meeting associated with a space.

Enhanced meetings associated with a space aren't yet available in Webex for Government.

For enhanced meetings associated with a space, people internal to the organization are automatically made cohosts during scheduling. They need an account with host privileges on the site where the meeting is scheduled from. External members of the space can only be made hosts or cohosts after the meeting starts.

When you make someone a cohost of a meeting, you're letting them:

  • Mute and unmute all or specific attendees

  • Record the meeting

  • Admit people from the lobby

  • Remove an attendee from a meeting

  • Lower a raised hand

  • Assign the presenter role to another attendee

  • End the meeting

Cohosts who you assign when you schedule meetings from your Webex site can also start a meeting.
