Differences Between the Host and Contributors
Here a few specificities about hosts, contributors, and attendees:
- Host: The host is in charge of running the webinar, s/he's the only one who can start and end the webinar.
- Contributors: Contributors have the right to enter the webinar room before it starts. If you pass them moderation rights they will be able to moderate the room.
- 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
anytimeby the host or a moderator.
