Dialpad Meetings' co-host feature allows other Participants to have Organizer privileges during an active meeting.
You can add a co-host during a meeting or designate a co-host for all of your meetings.
Let's take a look at co-hosting in Dialpad Meetings.
To enable co-hosting, head to your Dialpad Meetings dashboard:
- Select to Settings
- Navigate to Allow Co-Hosts with Access to Organizer Controls
- Toggle the slider to Enabled
Not seeing this option? If you're part of a team, you may need to request that your Admin turns on co-hosting for the entire company.
Add or remove a Co-Host in a meeting
To add a one-time Co-Host to your meeting, select the Participants icon from your meeting bottom bar.
- Select the menu beside the desired co-host's name
- Select Make a Co-Host
To remove a co-host, return to the same menu and select Remove Co-Host.
Add a designated Co-Host
Assign approved Co-Hosts to all your future meetings.
From the Dialpad Meetings dashboard, navigate to Settings and navigate to Approved Co-Hosts.
- Select Add Co-Hosts
- Enter names or email addresses for designated co-hosts
- Keep in mind that they must be on the same team as you; designated co-hosts cannot come from outside the company
To remove a designated Co-Host, return to the same menu and select Edit. Choose the co-host to remove, then select the 'X' icon.
Co-host controls are identical to an Organizer's Host Controls during a meeting.
- Start and stop recording
- Enable or disable Diapad Ai
- Lock a Meeting
- Edit the Meeting Title
- Mute Participants
- Remove Participants
Co-Hosts can also access the transcript after the meeting ends, and they're able to access the audio recording if the Organizer granted access to anyone with a link.
Frequently asked questions
Is there a maximum number of co-hosts?
Nope, add as many as you'd like!
Does a Co-Host have to be someone on my team?
If you're adding a one-time co-host during a meeting, you're able to choose any Participants.
