Multiple Hosts for Reoccurring Meetings

We have several team members that would like to start our daily conference call, but currently we are limited to having one main host. That main host can then add other co-hosts or change who the host is but we would like the ability to have more than one host to start the meeting.

    In our organization we have recruiters that company, These recruiters need RING Central to allow scheduling multiple meetings at the same time for managers.

    The current format forces me to join the meeting, try to quickly assign another person as host, then log off before our potential client signs in. This necessitates another user from our company signing in early in order to transfer the host credentials before the client signs in, or keep our client waiting in the waiting room while we get our act together. This creates meeting confusion and looks unprofessional.


    TEAMS allows for multiple meetings to happen and be scheduled at the same time, This is not selling the transition over to RING CENTRAL.

    The provision to assign an alternate host is not an ASK. It is REQUIRED. Every office or group that uses your app NEEDS this now.

    I echo what Steff Harry wrote - I have a staff person who scheduled a public meeting for tonight and suddenly today is out sick. My only choice is to know their password and logon impersonating them (bad juju doing it that way) or cancel the entire meeting and reschedule as the new host. That creates havoc for attendees who might not get the new meeting link in time to follow the change. WE NEED a way to assign a different person as the host before the meeting starts. An account admin should be able to access an individual meeting settings and change this on the fly.

    This is a no-brainer. We shouldn't even have to ask for it.

    RingCentral has promised over and over and over and over and over and over and over again to add this feature that Zoom has had for years. In fact, before they scrubbed their user forum, it was promised to be added "by the end of 2020".

    Now, people get to vote on it again and it has a whopping seven votes.

    Anyone who needs this functionality quite simply should move to platform that supports it.

    This is a heavily requested feature for our organization. We have many secretaries that create meetings for many different departments and public facing events and they have to join the meeting to give someone else host. It's very counter productive. I am aware of the 'schedule for' option but there's way too many steps for the general user and it gives too much access and room for error. If we could just have an option of 'Make another user co-host' on scheduling, that would be great.

    This feature is a MUST for my company as we need the ability to have more than one person start the meeting. I'm confused as to why this isn't a basic feature when it is a standard need for many organizations.

    This is great so we can have people cover meetings for people out sick or schedule meetings for others.

    In our company, I schedule the meetings and send out the invites, but I am almost never the one who conducts the actual meeting.

    The current format forces me to join the meeting, try to quickly assign another person as host, then log off before our potential client signs in. This necessitates another user from our company signing in early in order to transfer the host credentials before the client signs in, or keep our client waiting in the waiting room while we get our act together. This creates meeting confusion and looks unprofessional.

    We want to be able to assign the host credential to any user within our organization when creating the invite, before the meeting starts.
