Add Co-Organizers

Co-organizers are part of the staff who have access to the same organizer tools and features during a webinar and can help organizers facilitate the session or even start it on their behalf. Organizers can either add co-organizers before a session or promote them to the organizer role during a session. While organizers can make anyone a co-organizer of the webinar, only individuals who are also members of the same GoToWebinar account will be able to start webinars on their behalf. Note that although co-organizers can access all the same in-session features and reporting tools as the scheduling organizer, they do not have access to post-session features like archiving recordings and follow-up emails.

Add an organizer during a session

Organizers can promote any attendee to an organizer role during a session. These individuals do not need to have their own active account.

  1. In the Attendees pane, right-click the name of the desired attendee and click Make Organizer.
  2. You will be prompted to confirm that you wish to promote the attendee to organizers. Click Yes to continue. The attendee will be notified of their new organizer status.

Add a co-organizer before a session

Organizers can make someone a co-organizer before the session begins so that they can start the session if you are unable to. While you can make anyone a co-organizer of your webinar, only individuals who are also members of your same GoToWebinar account will be able to start webinars on your behalf.

  1. Log in at https://global.gotowebinar.com.

  2. Either schedule a new webinar event or open an existing one.
  3. Under "About", click the Organizers field. Note that your name should already be populated as an organizer.
  4. Enter the co-organizer's name and email address.
  5. To add another co-organizer, click the Plus icon.
  6. To limit your co-organizers to host-only mode, check the Host-only box. This will limit co-organizers in your account from editing webinar event details.
  7. When you're done, click Update. Your co-organizers will be added to the event details, and they will receive an invitation email with a link to join the session.
