Moderate a Meeting

  • Updated

This way, you don't have to worry about click-happy or non-technical Users muting or screen sharing, or keeping their mic on while they are on the subway.

Let's take a look at moderating in Dialpad Meetings. 

Host Controls

Meeting Organizers can easily access their Host Controls during an active meeting. 

Click the Host Controls icon (that's the security badge) to:

  • Enable Participants to share their screens
  • Enable Participants to Mute others
  • Mute all Participants 
  • Lock the Meeting so others cannot join unannounced
  • Turn Ai on or off 

When checked, Participants are then unable to mute others and share their screens.

Organizers can, however, continue muting and screen sharing while moderating is turned on.

Co-Host Controls 

By default, only the meeting Organizer can moderate the meeting. However, if you would like your co-host to be able to access organizer controls, this is possible by updating your Dialpad Meetings settings, by toggling on "Allow co-hosts with access to organizer controls"



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

They can control:

  • Audio Recording
  • Diapad Ai
  • Meeting Lock
  • Meeting Title
  • Mute
  • Participant Removal

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.
