Change participant roles in live meetings

Alter a user’s permissions while a meeting is underway.

In some conferences, you’ll want to change people’s roles during the meeting.

In a managed all-hands call with large numbers of participants, for example, you’ll have most people in a view- and listen-only role for much of the time. However, you may then need to switch specific individuals to full video and two-way audio to ask questions, and then switch them back again.

This involves temporarily changing their role, which the operator overseeing the meeting can do from their Activity screen.

Note that limitations in the Cisco Meeting Server API mean individuals using the Cisco Meeting App or WebRTC client cannot have their roles changed in this way. If this applies to you, we suggest you consider switching to the Webex Teams Client or the Cisco Meeting Server Web App, both of which are supported. Move Participant functionality requires that the Endpoints are registered with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (“CUCM”).

Real-time performance data

For each live call, an operator can view real-time performance statistics for every participant.

This includes:
• Tx and Rx jitter
• Tx and Rx bandwidth use
• Tx and Rx packet loss
• Tx framerate

This enables proactive troubleshooting.
