Sharing Host Privileges with another Participant on Zoom Meeting
Before you try to share the Zoom, host privileges with another participant, make sure you have the co-host option enabled in the settings. To enable it to follow the steps mentioned below:
- Go to the Zoom web portal and sign-in to your already existing zoom account then select the “Settings” tab.
- Scroll down the “Meeting” tab of the Settings menu to find the “co-host” option. It is better that you use the keyboard shortcut “Control + F” on Windows, and “Command + F” on Mac and typing the “co-host” in the search box as there are plenty of options given in this space which makes it hard to find a specific option.
- The search feature will take you directly to the “Co-host” option. Now toggle on the slider to enable the option in settings.
Once you have enabled the “Co-host” option in a Zoom Meeting, try adding a co-host in the meeting. Here’s how it could be done:
- During the Zoom call, navigate to the “Manage Participant” tab at the bottom of the window.
- The list of Zoom meeting participants will be displayed. Here, hover over to the participant’s name that you want to make the co-host and click on the “More” option.
- From the menu that pops-up, select the “Make Co-Host” option.
- You will be asked for confirmation of your action. Select the “Yes” button to continue.
The co-host label will be displayed in the brackets next to the user’s name who has been given the co-host privileges.
