What's it all about?

Are other people running your event alongside you? Maybe you have someone else presenting and speaking? Or perhaps you have a few folks on your team engaging and moderating the Attendees?

You'll want to invite them to your event as an Admin.

Breaking down the roles! πŸ‘₯

There are three roles that you are able to add to your event: Moderators, Presenters and Hosts.

Please note: Only business plan users will be able to add multiple hosts. For Growth and Starter plans you will only be able to have one host added to the Event!

You can add this under "Events" and click on "Customize"

Role types

Each role has a different set of permissions, allowing you to bring on your team or any guests in different ways.

Moderators πŸ‘€

Permission to moderate chat, resources, and attendees, but they can not present anything to the audience. This means that moderators will not be able to share their screen, slides, video or a webcam / mic.

Presenters πŸ—£

Permission to enable their webcam or microphone as well as present any slides and videos or share their screen to the audience.

They can also moderate chat, resources, and Attendees.


Hosts πŸ‘€

Responsible for starting and stopping the session. Permission to enable their webcam or microphone as well as present any slides and videos or share their screen to the audience.

They can also moderate chat, resources, and Attendees.

If you have a Business account on Demio and have multiple hosts, you can add users to your team and select hosts for specific events.

Once you have added users, they'll be available in your "Team member" dropdown.

You can then select to add them as a Host

If you need to swap a team member in as a Host, you'll be able swap a host and other team member in the Event:

Once you swap the Host, the original Host will be removed from the event and the other team member will become the Host:

Please note:

  1. In order to join the room for any event, including Automated events, you'll need to add yourself as an event admin. If you don't, the join room button will be disabled.
  2. ​All account users will now have Host ability; we've removed the option to disable Host permissions for certain account users within settings, but we will be improving this area in the future.

What about the room?

Inside of the Demio room, you and your Hosts and Presenters will appear at the top bar for Attendees to see.

On the other hand, Moderators will not show in this area. They will remain in the background but appear in the chatbox if they send any messages.

NOTE: Only Admins designated as Hosts can start session. Presenter and Moderators are not able to start and/or stop webinar sessions.
