Two days back, my friend send us a meeting invite. Dues to some reason he was not available for the meetings and he didn’t assign a cohost. So participants where waiting at the lobby with no option to join the meeting.
Whats a cohost
I took the below lines from webex help Center .
If the host is running late or can’t attend, a cohost can start and manage the meeting or webinar in their place. Cohosts can also assist the host with meeting management, which is useful for larger meetings. If the host is not in the meeting, a cohost assumes the host role until the original host joins.
Cohost Options while scheduling the meetings.
