Zoom: Host Controls & Participant Management in a Large Meeting

Host Controls & Participant Management in a Large Meeting

1.  There are multiple roles available for a Large Meeting: host, co-host, alternative host, and participant. The role that you have in the Large Meeting will be designated by the host.

2. The host is the user that scheduled the meeting. They have full permissions to manage the meeting. There can only be one host of a meeting.

3. Co-Hosts share most of the controls that hosts have, allowing the co-host to manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing participants. The host must assign a co-host during the meeting. Co-hosts cannot start a meeting. If a host needs someone else to start the meeting, they can assign an alternative host.

Note: Co-hosts cannot start meetings scheduled by the host. Co-hosts cannot be assigned ahead of time. The host has to promote a participant to co-host. Alternatively, the host can assign a user as an alternative host.

4. Alternative hosts share the same controls as co-hosts, but can also start the meeting. Hosts can assign alternative hosts when they schedule a meeting.

Note: Alternative hosts can start the meeting by using the meeting ID or the meeting link in the invitation email directly from Zoom. The meeting will not display in the upcoming meetings list in the desktop client or mobile app for alternative hosts.

5. Participants can share their video, screen, and audio.


Large Meeting Registration & Scheduling

Large Meetings can require pre-registration before the event. The host can either automatically approve all registrants or manually approve each one. The host can add custom registration questions and generate reports on these registrations as well.

Scheduling a Large Meeting with registration will allow participants register with their e-mail, name, other questions, and custom questions, allowing you to capture more information about your participants.

You can customize the registration for Large Meetings through an array of registration options and branding.

Scheduling a Large Meeting without registration will allow participants to join without needing to sign up in advance. Participants will be required to enter their name and email address upon joining.

Zoom also allows you to schedule recurring Large Meetings with multiple occurrences, so that each occurrence uses the same meeting ID and settings. You can schedule these meetings in daily, weekly, and monthly increments. You can also set a recurring meeting to be used at any time. Meeting IDs for recurring meetings expire 365 days after the meeting was last started.

Large Meeting Reporting

Large Meeting Reports allows users to generate different metrics and information reports including:

  • Registration: Displays a list of registrants and their registration details.
  • Polling: Displays each participant’s poll result.
  • Usage: Provides meetings, participant information, participant counts, and meeting minutes within a specified time range.

These reports can be exported in a .CSV format for further analysis.
