Alternative Host

The alternative host feature can only be used with other Church-provided Zoom accounts due to limitations. Local units wanting to provide individuals without access to the Church-provided Zoom account the ability to start scheduled meetings as the host can consider using the Zoom host key.

The following must be done to use the host key to start a meeting as the host:

  • Meeting must be setup to
    • Allow participants to join anytime
    • Waiting room must be disabled
  • Host key must be shared with appropriate individual(s) and claimed as outlined in this article

After an individual has claimed the meeting using the host key, they can enable the waiting room if desired for added security. If the host key is used to claim meetings, it is encouraged local units periodically change the host key to improve security and reduce potential issues.
