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


Having a co-host helps the host to 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 is unable to 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.
     

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:-

  1. 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)
  2.  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.
  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) 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:-

  1. As a host, join the backstage 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-host).



  4. 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 :

  1. As a host, join the backstage (not live session) for the session.

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

FAQs

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.
