I was added as a host to a meeting and can start the meeting just fine but when I enter the room Connect only gives me the presenter areas and have no access to the host options (such as Share My Screen or the side bars). Oddly, those options appear to me as soon as another host joins the meeting. I'm using a Mac laptop with Windows running as a virtual PC. I've tried accessing the room from both my Mac and my virtual PC but they both have the same results. What am I missing?!?
You must be in the Meeting Host group to start a room and access the Host features. The reason you see those features become available when another Host joins the room is because they are a member of the Meeting Host group.
I've found that group but I can't locate how to make changes to it. Is that behind the Administrator wall and, if not, can you point me to it?
An administrator will need to add you to the group.
