However, we do not offer <b><u><a href="https://community.ringcentral.com/ringcentral/topics/add-alternative-host-feature-in-ringcentral-meetings" rel="nofollow">Alternative Host</a></u></b>, which I believe is what you and others on this thread are looking for. Please vote on the other thread :) 0
