The co-host feature allows you to have another user share event hosting responsibilities with the host. 


Having a co-host helps the host focus on moderating the event while the co-host handles the administrative aspect of the session. It is also helpful in ensuring that the event runs smoothly even if the host cannot join or gets disconnected.


The co-host will have access to all functionalities available to the host that includes:

  • Ability to start/stop/pause the sessions.
  • Manage stage controls such as mute, pin speaker, remove speaker, etc
  • Control stage access through an invite to the stage, raise a hand.

Basically, the Co-Host shares the same rights and controls that the session host has.


Any session in an Airmeet event can have 2 co-hosts in addition to the host.



 



How to assign a Co-host?

A co-host can be assigned in two ways :

1. Dashboard: Community manager or Community team member (Event Manager) can be made co-host.

Steps to add co-host from the dashboard:-

  1. Go to the dashboard and choose or create an event where you want to add a co-host.
    (airmeet.com >Sign in> Dashboard > Events > Choose Event > View Details > Enter dashboard)
  2.  Go to the Schedule tab, click on +Add an activity, select the type of session, and fill in the session details.


  3.  While creating/editing a session, add a co-host by clicking on the + Add Co-host option in the pop-up.



  4.  Choose your Community team members (Event Manager) by selecting them from the list and add them as co-hosts and click on Save.




Points to Keep in Mind While Adding Co-host From the Dashboard

  • Only a Community team member (Event Manager) can be made co-host from the dashboard.

  • Co-hosts will show up with the 'host' label on stage.

  • Co-host details would not be shown on the event landing page & on the session agenda tab during the event.

 


2. Session Backstage/Live Stage: Any Community team member (Event Manager) or a speaker can be made co-host from backstage or from the live session. The speaker must be present on backstage/live stage to be made as a co-host.

Adding co-host from backstage/live stage:-

  1. As a host, join backstage/live stage for the session.
  2. Click on the three-dot option from the middle bottom of the screen and choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.



  3. Select the desired co-host from the drop-down menu listing all the team members and Speakers (1 host + 2 co-hosts).



  4. A pop-up message will inform everyone on stage that a new co-host is added.

 

Points to Keep in Mind While Adding Co-host From the Backstage


  • If the Community team member (Event Manager) is host/speaker/co-host for another parallel session, making their co-host won't be possible.

  • To make an attendee a co-host, host, or another co-host need to call the attendee on stage using the invite to stage feature and then make them co-host backstage.

  • Community team members (Event Manager) do NOT need to be backstage to be made co-host (only speakers).

  • The attendee joining as Guest/without registration cannot be made co-host.

  • Co-host details would not be shown on the event landing page & on the session agenda tab during the event.

  • If the co-host of an ongoing session disconnects and rejoins the event, they would directly enter the LIVE SESSION.

 



FAQs

Q. How to remove a co-host?

The host can remove a co-host from backstage by the following steps :

  1. As a host, join backstage or the live stage.

  2. Click on the three-dot option, choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.

  3. Select the desired co-host from the menu listing all the team members and click on the Remove option.

 



Q. Why can’t I add one of my guests as my co-host?

If someone has joined the event through Guest Access (without registration), that attendee cannot be added as the co-host.

Q. Can we assign the same co-host for parallel sessions?
A co-host of one session cannot be the host/co-host for another parallel session.

Q. Why doesn't the co-host appear on the event landing page and session agenda tab?
Co-host is a special accessibility feature for an organizer to help him manage the event and session. Thus that's the reason the co-host name or details doesn't appear on the event landing & session agenda.
