Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

My Zoom Pro account has advanced options that can be enabled to


  • “allow join before host”.
  • restricts those joining to ones who have authenticated (no guest zoom accounts).
  • designate alternative hosts.


Hope this helps.

Subject: [HLAATech] Zoom meetings and backup host question


I was wondering how chapters are hosting their Zoom meetings. Currently I am hosting them using my Zoom Pro license. I feel uneasy...what if I can't start a meeting? Sick, hit by a bus, etc. Everyone would already have the meeting link and no host to start.
