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 the organizer's behalf of they're part of the same GoTo Webinar account).

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

Add a co-organizer before the webinar

Add up to 49 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 part of the same GoTo Webinar account can start them on your behalf.

You can only add 28 external co-organizers (users who are not part of your GoTo Webinar account).
  1. Sign in to your account at
  2. Either schedule a new webinar event or open an existing one.
  3. Under About, select the Organizers field.
  4. To add a co-organizer in your GoTo Webinar account, search for their name. To add an external co-organizer, select 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, select 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.

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 GoTo Webinar account.

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