Using host and cohost in-webinar controls

Last updated on March 15, 2022
Hosts and cohosts have in-webinar controls that can manage panelists, attendees, and the webinar itself. Only hosts and cohosts can have in-webinar controls. If a panelist is promoted to a cohost, they will also have access to the in-webinar controls while they have the cohost role. However, panelists will lose in-webinar controls once demoted.
