During a meeting, hosts can assign the Cohost role to one or more meeting attendees. Open the Participant panel and locate the attendee you want to make a cohost.
Right-click on their name and select the Change Role option (blue box above) and then select the Make Cohost option (green arrow above)
Webex will ask you to confirm if you want to make that attendee a Cohost. Click the Blue OK button (red arrow below) to confirm.
Because the Cohost role provides privileges similar to the host role, Cohosts can help to improve meeting productivity. If the host is running late or can't attend, a cohost can start and manage the meeting. Cohosts can also assist the host with meeting management, which is useful for larger meetings.
During a meeting, hosts can assign the Cohost role to one or more meeting attendees. The option to assign the role is dimmed for attendees who join from unsupported clients. If the host assigns the Cohost role to invitees while scheduling the meeting, those invitees join the meeting with the Cohost role. During the meeting, the host can assign the cohost role to attendees—even to guest attendees.
Cohosts can perform the following meeting management tasks:
Start and host the meeting for you.
Mute or unmute some, or all participants.
Permit or prevent attendees unmuting themselves after the host or cohost mutes them.
Move attendees to and from the lobby.
Invite and remind attendees.
Manage breakout sessions
Join breakout sessions to help attendees.
End the meeting.
Lock or unlock the meeting.
