This article walks you through the process of how to change the host for a videoconference session in SecureVideo. This will not trigger a notification to the participant(s), although any reminders sent for the session will use the new host name.


This action requires the the new host to be a current licensed user.

  • This feature will not be visible if the Account Option "Show Hosts in Contact List" is set to "No". 
  • Session Notes will not transfer between hosts (any session notes a host creates will remain in their own account). Completed e-documents will remain visible in the session panel's Session Documents section. Any documents assigned to the original host that were not yet completed, will be assigned to the new host.


If a session host is changed after the session has been connected to, all participants will have to leave and re-enter to be connected to others.
