How do I add co-organizers to my webinar?

Co-organizers have access to the same organizer tools and features during a webinar and can help facilitate it (or even start it on their behalf if part of the same GoToWebinar account).

Important: Although co-organizers have access to all the same in-session features and post-session reporting tools (if they have a GoToWebinar account) as the scheduling organizer, they do not have access to post-session features like archiving recordings and follow-up emails.

Add a co-organizer during the webinar

Promote any attendee or staff member to a co-organizer role during the webinar. These individuals do not need to have their own GoToWebinar account.

  1. In the Attendees pane, right-click the name of the desired attendee and click Make Organizer.
  2. You will be prompted to confirm that you wish to promote the attendee to organizers. Click Yes to continue. The attendee will be notified of their new organizer status.

Add a co-organizer before the webinar

Add co-organizers before the webinar so that they can start the session if you are unable to. While you can make anyone a co-organizer of your webinar, only those who are members of the same GoToWebinar account will be able to start webinars on your behalf.

  1. Log in to your account at https://global.gotowebinar.com.
  2. Either schedule a new webinar event or open an existing one.
  3. Under "About", click the Organizers field.
  4. To add a co-organizer in your GoToWebinar account, search for their name. To add an external co-organizer, click the Plus icon and enter their name and email.

    Note: To limit your co-organizers to host-only mode, check the Host-only box. This will limit co-organizers in your account from editing webinar event details.

  5. When you're done adding co-organizers, click Update.
  6. Your co-organizers will be added to the event details, and they will receive an invitation email with a link to join the session.
