I agree this is a necessary feature that should have been available ages-ago. In Outlook, when an assistant sends a meeting request in Outlook, all the replies go to the manager. That is because the manager delegated the assistant on behalf of the manager.
In Ringcental when an assistant creates a meeting for the manager there are many factures that can go wrong.
1. The assistant has the feature enable join before host, enabled but
2. If the manage does not have this feature enabled in their desktop app or their phone app, all callers are caught in a loop. Guess what, waiting for a Host Code.
3. Manage cannot get out of loop because they do not have the Host Code. Oh and guess what the meeting is not in their Upcoming List to edit or restart. The meeting is listed in the assistants upcoming list.
A very simple way to solve this is to add a Host ID along with the Participant ID. A simple task to do. This way if you cannot make the meeting, all you have to do is give a colleague the two codes, simple.
Dont tell me that this is available because it is not available in the variable scheduler.
It is only available if you use your static meeting id and participate id. Imagine an assistant who works with 5-6 managers and schedules multiple meetings. Schedules multiple meetings in one day. If one of those meetings is pushed back or moved up, cross contamination. Now you have callers joining a current call. Client confidentiality destroyed.
Please add alternative or co-host feature.
