- 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.
