Zoom allows you to designate alternative hosts for a meeting who can help manage the meeting as a co-host, or take control as the host if the meeting owner cannot attend. For example, you may want to designate a TA as an alternative host to help during lectures. Note that you need to add alternative hosts using their firstname.lastname@example.org email (e.g. email@example.com). This process will not work if you use the firstname.lastname@example.org format (e.g. email@example.com).
If the Zoom meeting is recurring, the steps in this tutorial will set the alternative host for all future meetings. You also have an option to designate any meeting participant as a co-host during the meeting. This works well if you need a co-host for only one meeting occurrence.
Use a web browser to navigate to https://cuboulder.zoom.us, and select Login with CU Identikey.
On the Edit Meeting page, scroll down to the bottom and enter the email of the host you would like to add in the Alternative Host field in the following format: firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g. email@example.com). To add multiple hosts, separate them with a comma. Click the Save button.
Please Note: users must log in to the CU Zoom web portal (cuboulder.zoom.us) at least once before being added as alternative hosts to Zoom meetings. If you receive an error, ask your alternative host to log into the web portal.
The user designated as an alternative host will receive an email notifying them that they've been added as an alternative host, with a link to start the meeting.
