8.8. Can anybody besides the account holder be appointed the Moderator of a meeting? Can a Moderator set up a meeting?
Yes, you can have multiple moderators. There are two ways you can promote any attendee.
- If you want to give permission to any participant to be a moderator of a meeting, you can do this while scheduling your meeting.
On the invite screen, right next to the “User” icon in the email field, there is an option “Add to” with a drop down box.
- There you can select whether you want to add any participant as a Participant, Moderator or Observer.
You can also give Moderator access to any of your participants during the session. Once your session starts, click on the name of the participant you want to make a Moderator and select the “Role” option.
Additionally, you can at any point in time during a meeting, give any user permissions or access to any of the tools that are being used at the time of the meeting. This is and advanced feature. To do this, click on the name of the participant you want to change permissions for and select the “Permissions” option. You’ll be able to turn any individual permission on and off. Once a users permissions are edited, you will see a small pencil icon next to his avatar in the user list. Simply select a role from the drop down to set him back to the defaults.
Moderators can control meetings; Participants and Observers cannot.
Someone appointed Moderator cannot set up meetings. Only account holders can.
