How to add a moderator to a Session or Expo Booth

  • Updated


If you’d like to control which attendees will have permission to participate with Video/Audio, you can create a moderated session.

While creating the sessions, set the Who can participate option to ‘Moderated’, type the name of the attendee to give them the Moderator role and permissions.


Note: Only registered attendees can be assigned as moderators.

If you are using a separate registration system such as Zapier, you will need to send magic link invites to all of the participants that are going to moderate booths. 

When a moderator is in a session, other attendees can click the button that says Ask to Share Audio and Video. Clicking this button will open the moderation panel at the bottom left of the page for the moderator to view who’s requesting and click to add them to the video stream.



Once allowed, the speaker will choose their audio/video devices and then appear on camera.

The moderator can take off speakers from the Session screen or the speaker's screen share by clicking the three-dot by the speaker or screen share and click Remove. 


To add moderators to an Expo Booth, please ensure the 'Content Provider' is set as 'Session' in the settings and follow the previous steps (above) to manage participants as a moderator. 


Tip: Check our guide on Roles and Permissions for more information about event participants.

Moderators can also:

  • Mute a speaker for all attendees on a moderated Session or Expo Session
  • Create Polls for a Moderated Session or Expo Session
  • Toggle Fallback provider on the Expo Session if the fallback provider is enabled by Organization admin, Event admin, or Invited Vendor
  • Answer Q&A's in assigned Sessions
