Designating a Webex Event Panelist as a Presenter


How do I pass the presenter role on to a Webex event panelist?


The Webex event host can designate any participant as the presenter using one of the following methods:

  • Right-click the name on the Participants window under Panelists and select Change Role To followed by Make Presenter.
  • Select the desired panelist's name on the Participants window, go to the Participant menu, then select Change Role To followed by Make Presenter.

Note: The presenter role cannot be passed onto an attendee who has joined using the Webex WebApp.

ITS will decommission administrative use of the Webex application on April 21, 2022. Academic use of Webex (Canvas integration) will be removed as of December 20, 2021, and the Webex application will be removed from classroom computers over winter break. New University-owned devices no longer include the Webex software; Zoom and Microsoft Teams are available as a replacement for Webex. Visit for more information.
