Add & Remove a Co-Host

  • Updated

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.

Enable Co-Hosting

First, you'll need to enable co-hosting.

From the Dialpad Meetings dashboard, navigate to Settings and scroll down to the Allow Co-Hosts with Access to Organizer Controls toggle


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. 

  1. Select the menu beside the desired co-host's name
  2. 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

Add designated Co-Hosts a for all future meetings that you are the Organizer for by assigning Approved Co-Hosts.

From the Dialpad Meetings dashboard, navigate to Settings and navigate to Approved Co-Hosts.

  1. Select Add Co-Hosts
  2. 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

Co-host controls are identical to an Organizer's Host Controls during a meeting.

Co-Hosts can:

  • 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.


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.

If you're setting a designated co-host for all your Meetings, that User must be on your team.
