Q: How do I designate an alternate host for my meeting?

Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) is retiring MIT's Webex service. No new MIT accounts will be created after June 7 and the service will be retired on August 30, 2024. For more information, see: MIT's Webex service to be retired


  1. Log into WebEx
  2. On your home screen either create a new meeting by clicking on "Schedule a Meeting" or select an existing meeting in "Upcoming Meetings".

  3. If editing an existing meeting, click on the pencil icon to make changes to your meeting.

  4. Once you've added attendees to your meetings, any attendees eligible to host meetings (people with WebEx host accounts, which includes MIT students, faculty and staff) have an icon next to their name you can click to select them as a host.

    Result: Once clicked the icon turns blue indicating that attendee has been designated an alternate host.
  5. Click on Save Meeting.
