Can two users share one license to host a meeting?


We have four license holders on our account, which is primarily used for a daily AA meeting. We need to add two more hosts, but wonder if they can share one license via a shared email address, such as something like ***********. Is that possible?

Welcome to the Zoom Community, @PCG.


Each person attending needs to be on their own account.


Do you need multiple Co-Hosts? Cohosts must be designated inside the meeting, and they can be Basic (free) accounts. 

If you mean that different people need to take turns starting the meeting on different nights, and assuming most of the attendees are not from the same corporate/organizational account, it best bet is to use the Host Key method of showing others to start the meeting on your behalf. 

Information about obtaining and using your Host Key is found in this Zoom Support article:


Note that the meeting must be set to NOT require a Waiting Room, and to allow Join Before Host (I recommend the 15 minute setting).  Your associates, in possession of your host key, join the meeting and click the Claim Host button from the Participants window and enter the Key, at which time they will Become the meeting host.
