Does an alternative host need a large meeting add-on licence?

Hello

 

We have a user who is licensed with the "Large 500" add-on, who has scheduled a meeting where we expect up to 500 attendees.

 

That user has designated an alternative host, who is licensed but does not have a large meetings add-on.

 

If the alternative host starts the meeting, will the participants be limited to 100 since the alternative host does not have the add-on?

The meeting size is determined by the host account not the co-host.

Exactly what @ChrisO stated. The Large Meeting license is tied to a user. It can be moved freely between users by the owner\admin of the Zoom account.

Thank you, both. So as long as the meeting was scheduled by a user with the Large Meeting license, it does not matter who starts the meeting?

What if the person who scheduled the meeting has only a capacity of 100 attendees and the alternative host has a large add on?

No, the large meeting license is tied to a user in their account. I would have the person with the large meeting license create the meeting.
