How do I login during a meeting? Follow

Overview

If you have Join Before Host enabled for your meeting and you join the meeting without being logged in, you can sign in and claim host control. This will give you the ability to manage participants, record, and more. Learn more about host controls in a meeting.

Note: If you are already logged in, you will not have this option and it will show you as Host in the participants list. If it does not show you as host, but this is a meeting you scheduled, you may be logged into the wrong account or scheduled the meeting for another user using scheduling privilege
