adding TA as cohost on Zoom

Hello all,

I tried to add my TA as cohost on Zoom, and was rebuffed! Are students part of the "organization," or do our TAs need to be added to a list of some kind so we can make them cohosts? I want my TA to monitor the waiting room, and she needs to be cohost for that, no?

Thank you, Zoom gurus!

Michele

Have you checked your global settings (outside of the meeting settings). There is one called "co-host" that says: "Allow the host to add co-hosts. Co-hosts have the same in-meeting controls as the host." Has to be turned on.

I was successful adding a TA as co-host for one class, but was rebuffed for the other. My global setting definitely say 'allow co-host'. My guess is that the rebuff has something to do with whether the TA has logged into Zoom through Hampshire yet. It might resolve itself after the first class. If not, I'll see if I can find out what's different between my TAs, since the class set-ups are identical.

Believe me, Laura - I always check the settings. I have been adding co-hosts like a pro since spring.

And Cindy - that is helpful. I have zoomed with my TA. I wonder if the issue is that she signs in with google and not with the SSO. I will ask her to do that and see what happens.

Thanks,

Michele
