This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Is there a way to set an alternate host to a meeting?.

For instance, I'm unable to attend a meeting that I have scheduled, but there is another person in my department that can fill in for me.  I could quickly access my meetings app, select the meeting, and add this person as an alternate host.  They are then able to start my meeting in my place.

The co-host functionality is great, but making someone a co-host still physically requires the original host to join the meeting and set that person.  Why can we not have an "alternate host"?  This is someone you set to be able to host the meeting when it is scheduled.  That way in case of emergency, there is always a host to a meeting.

Hello Beth!

Thanks for checking in!

We still hope to get this feature before end of year but I don't have any better date for you yet. Thanks for your patience.

What is the status of the 'alternative host' / 'additional-host' functionality? Earlier in the thread - 2H of 2018.
