Differences Between Roles

Here a few specificities about team members and guest speakers:

  • Host (Team member): A team member with the host role is in charge of running the webinar, s/he is the who can start and end the webinar. 
  • Moderator (Team member): A team member with the moderator role can enter the webinar room before it starts. They can view the webinar dashboard and moderate webinars.
  • Guest speakers: People who are not part of your team but will present in the webinar or help moderate. Can enter the room before it starts and moderate webinars.
  • Attendees: Attendees are just viewers by default.  They interact with others via chat or questions only once the webinar is live. They cannot see each other, they don't have access to their webcam or audio. However, they can be invited "on stage" at  anytime  by the host or a moderator.
