Note: In case of large groups of participants, this may be perceived as undesirable due to the high number of notifications.

  • If this option is disabled, participants will not receive a notification.

When an alternative host is set or removed from a meeting

  • Enable this option if you want to keep all hosts informed of changes in permissions.
