People attending a webinar may be assigned one of several different roles. Each role comes with it a different set of entitlements and capabilities. These roles are:

Role Description
Host A webinar's host has full authority over all aspects of the webinar.
CoHost Co-hosts have the ability to change the role of other attendees, for example promoting an attendee to a panelist.
Panelist Panelists are allowed to participate directly in a webinar and can enable/disable their audio and video so that others can see and hear them.
Attendee Attendees only have the ability to watch and/or listen to a webinar. Their microphone and video are fully disabled.
