The user who initiates the call is termed as the Host of the meeting. The Host can manage and define permissions for the participants of the meeting.
The Co-hosts can help the Host to manage the meeting with the help of the privileges provided to them by the Host. The Host can add upto 10 Co-hosts in a meeting.
Speakers are significant members for whom a Host can reserve a seat for. You can add up to 100 participants as Speaker.
Perks of being a Speaker:
- The members you add as Speaker have a reserved seat in the meeting.
- If a Speaker does not attend the meeting, the reserved seat will remain empty.
- The reserved seat cannot be swapped to accommodate an audience.
- All the members who are added as a Speaker will be able to speak without having to ask for request to speak permission from the Host.
Here are some of the scenarios that will help you put the Speaker option to best use:
- Consider choosing only the significant members involved in the conversation as Speaker, as this will help the silent audience and the viewers to focus better on the ongoing conversation.
- When you are hosting a session involving a large audience base, you can add the key speakers as Speaker and reserve a seat for them.
- Say if you are hosting a brainstorming session with 100 participants or less in such cases you would want everyone in the channel to interact, so there is no need to add Speakers.
Active participants of a meeting, can interact in the meeting by opting the Request to speak option. On Hosts approval, they will be able to interact and engage in the ongoing conversation.
You can have upto 1000 active participants, including the 100 reserved seats which is for the Speakers. Thereby speakers by default become the active participants of the group call, but if you choose to add only a few significant members as your Speakers, the remaining seats up to 100 which are reserved for Speakers will be occupied by the members who are joining initially on first come first serve basis.
For example: Say you have 120 participants and you choose to add only 10 participants as your Speaker, then by default the remaining 110 members will become your Active Participants if you select the Add Speakers option else the remaining participants will be categorized as participant.
Members who join the conversation after the first 1000 participants are termed as Audience . If a member in the audience is interested to interact in the group video call, they will have to ask for request to speak permission from the host. Audiences of the meeting can only view and listen to audio and video meetings respectively. You can add up to 10000 audiences in a Cliq meeting.
