Zoom Roles

There are multiple roles available for a meeting - host, co-host, alternative hosts, and participants.

Host - The user that scheduled the meeting. They have full permissions to manage the meeting. There can only be one host of a meeting.

Co-hosts - The co-host shares most of the controls that hosts have– and manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing attendees. The host must assign a co-host during the meeting. Co-hosts cannot start a meeting. If a host needs someone else to start the meeting, they can assign an alternative host.

Alternative HostShares the same controls as co-hosts, but can also start the meeting. Hosts can assign alternative hosts when they schedule a meeting.
