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.
Any session in an Airmeet 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:-
- Go to the dashboard and choose or create an event where you want to add a co-host.
(airmeet.com >Sign in> Dashboard > Airmeets > Choose Event > View Details > Enter dashboard)
- Choose Sessions from the left-hand side of the dashboard and add a session by clicking on +Add Session from the top right side of the page. Fill in the session details.
- While creating/editing a session, add a co-host by clicking on the + Add Co-host option in the pop-up.
- Choose your Community team members (Event Manager) from the drop-down option and add him/her as co-host and click on add session.
Points to keep in mind while adding 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: Any Community team member (Event Manager) or a speaker can be made co-host from backstage (not live session). The speaker has to be on backstage to be made as a co-host.
Adding co-host from backstage:-
- As a host, join the backstage for the session.
- Click on the three-dot option from the middle bottom of the screen and choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.
- Select the desired co-host from the drop-down menu listing all the team members and Speakers (1 host + 2 co-host).
A pop-up message will inform everyone on stage that a new co-host is added.
Points to keep in mind while adding from backstage
In case the Community team member (Event Manager) is host/speaker/co-host for another parallel session, it won't be possible to make them co-host.
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 on 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 back on the event they would directly enter the LIVE SESSION.
Q. How to remove a co-host?
A co-host can be removed by the host from backstage by the following steps :
As a host, join the backstage (not live session) for the session.
Click on the three-dot option, choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.
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), then 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 organiser 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.
