No Way to add a "cohost" to a scheduled meeting


Hello Zoom Community - I host a zoom meeting account and under "options" it never allows me to add co-hosts. No matter what email I put it - this is the message I get.

Hi @nwdsongs 


There is no way to assign a co-host outside of a meeting. That is only something that can be done within a live meeting. 

Assigning someone as alternative-host will likely make them a co-host in the meeting if you still plan on attending, but an alternative host must be a licensed user on your same account. Read more about alternative hosts here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/208220166-Designating-an-alternative-host


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
