  4. Once a user has been made a Co Host, they will be able to do the following:
    • Mute/Unmute All: mute/unmute all participants in meeting - you will be given the option (checkbox) to allow or not allow participants to unmute
    • Lock Screen sharing: by selecting lock screen sharing, other participants will not be able to share screen.
    • Mute on Entry: participants will automatically mute as they enter the meeting
    • Play Enter/Exit Chime: plays a sound as participants join and leave the meeting
    • Lock meeting: you can lock your meeting so that no other participants may join
    • Stop Video: stop participant's video stream (unable to start video)
    • Remove: you can kick/boot participant(s) from the meeting
    • Rename: rename the attendee name selection
    • Start attendee on hold: Place the participant "on-hold", removing them from the video and audio conference - *you must have Enable attendee on-hold selected in your Profile Settings prior to starting the meeting
