Hello, 

I am trying to find out if there is a way for co-hosts to set others in the meeting as co-hosts. 

Thanks for the support!

Hello KCody - to answer your question, only the host can set others during the meeting to a co-host.  Here is a list of Controls for both the host and co-host.

 

Controls for hosts and co-hosts

With meetings, hosts and co-hosts can control the following features:

  • Mute participants
  • Request that a participant mutes or unmutes (with pre-approved consent)
  • Stop a participant's video
  • Request that a participant starts their video
  • Prevent participants from screen sharing
  • Rename a participant
  • Put a participant on hold (if the waiting room is disabled)
  • Choose to play an enter or exit chime
  • Lock the meeting to prevent anyone new from joining
  • Place participants in the waiting room or admit/remove participants from the waiting room (waiting room can only be enabled by the host)

Only hosts have access to these features:

For additional information, I've attached the following URL https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005759423.

Can you give. me Co-host?

Tell me how do you Co-host

When you are the host of a meeting you have the option to add a participant as a co-host, by clicking o n the three dots in the participant's window. If you do not have this option you have to enable cohosts on the online platform settings or your organization may have disabled the option for co-hosts.
