How do you add a co-host (co-organizer) to a meeting, so that if the host (organizer) is not available, the co-host can start the meeting?

Hello Beth,

Here is some information regarding the Co-Host ability. There is also this article.

From what I understand a Ring Central co-host is not the same as a GoToMeeting type co-organizer.  A GTM Co-Organizer can start and run your meeting even if you are on vacation and un-able to attend.  A RC co-host can only be assigned after the host has started the meeting. Is that correct?

Putting in my task vote for this functionality as well. We are trying to get off GTM, but not being able to have someone run a recurring mtg when another organizer is on PTO is an obstacle.

This seems like very basic functionality to have for business users, what's the hold-up?

Hi Laura, we offer the Co-Host functionality already, as I mentioned before. However, we do not offer Alternative Host, which I believe is what you and others on this thread are looking for. Please vote on the other thread :)
