Review frequently asked questions on roles in GoToMeeting FAQs.
An organizer has a GoToMeeting account and schedules, starts, manages and ends a session. An organizer can also designate other attendees to be organizers. Once a session starts, the scheduling organizer is the default presenter and may either begin presenting or pass the presenter controls to another organizer.
An organizer can add co-organizers to their sessions, allowing them to have access to some organizer tools and features and to help with facilitating sessions. Although co-organizers can access all the same in-session features as the organizer, they do not have access to post-session features like reporting, archiving recordings, and follow-up emails.
A presenter is the person who is presenting their screen to the audience. The GoToMeeting organizer is always designated as the initial presenter. The presenter role can then be passed to another organizer or attendee.
Presenters can show their complete desktops, a clean screen (with no icons or taskbar) or a specific application window to the audience. Presenters may choose to pause Screen Sharing at any time. Presenters may give other organizers the ability to control their keyboard and mouse.
An attendee is any person who attends a session, including organizers and presenters. By default, attendees can view the presenter's screen. An attendee may remotely control the presenter's computer screen if given the privilege. An attendee may optionally chat with other attendees, use Drawing Tools or view the Attendee List.
When using integrated audio conferencing, up to 25 attendees can be unmuted and speak on the call at any one time.
