Differences Between Roles

Here are a few specifics on what each kind of attendee can do:

  • Host (Team member): A team member with the host role is in charge of running the event. It's the only role that can start and end the event. 
  • Moderator (Team member): A team member with the moderator role can enter the Event room before it starts. They can view the Event dashboard and moderate events.
  • Guest speakers: People who are not part of your team but will present at the event or help moderate. They can enter the room before it starts and moderate events.
  • Attendees: Attendees are just viewers by default. They interact with others via chat or questions only once the event is live. They cannot see each other, they cannot share their own webcam or audio. However, they can be invited "on stage" at any time by team members and guest speakers.

Only the workspace owner (the person who created the workspace) can delete the workspace and delete team members.
