Configuring hosts for a persistent Session

If you make someone a host of a persistent Session, they will be a host each time that they join the persistent Session. If you revoke someone's host permissions, they will be a non-host each time that they join the persistent Session.
If you have an Owner or Administrator role in an Enterprise group, you're granted host permissions for each of the group's persistent Sessions by default.
For information about how to grant and revoke host permissions for a persistent Session, see the sections below.

In a persistent Session

If both you and the person whose host status you want to change are in the persistent Session at the same time, you can use the host controls to change their host status. For instructions on how to grant host permissions to a user, see Adding a co-host. For instructions on how to revoke host permissions, seeRemoving a co-host.
You can use this method to revoke host permissions that were granted by default to an Owner or Administrator of an Enterprise group.

Through the web manager

You can use the web manager to make everyone that joins the Session a host or to set specific, named individuals as hosts. You can also use the web manager to revoke host permissions that were previously granted. This includes host permissions that were granted when in the Session.
You must join a persistent Session in the ENGAGE app before you can edit it in the web manager. Otherwise, the web manager will display an error message when you attempt to save your changes. This issue will be resolved in a future release.
To configure hosts, complete the following steps:
  1. 1.
    Go to https://app.engagevr.io/, and then log in.
  2. 2.
    On the menu, select Sessions. If you don't see the option listed in the menu, you don't have the required permissions.
  3. 3.
    Optional: If you created the persistent Session, select the My Sessions tab to view the list of your Sessions.
  4. 4.
    Select the More icon (
    ) for the persistent session that you want to configure, and then select Edit.
  5. 5.
    To make any person that joins the Session a host, turn on the All Users are Co-Host toggle.
  6. 6.
    To make a specific person a host, enter the email address that's associated with their ENGAGE account in the Email field, and then select ADD. You can continue to add additional people.
  7. 7.
    To revoke host permissions from a specific person, select the cross next to their email address.
  8. 8.
    Select SAVE.
Options to add and remove hosts
If you don't know the email address of the person that you want to add, and you have access to the Enterprise Administrator Portal, you can select View these in the group portal, and then search for that person on the Memberships tab.
