For hosts, Zencastr provides several options to manage their guests before and while recording.
📝 The ‘Record Audio and Video’ recording mode is shown below. The same actions are available for the other two modes, except turning off a guest’s camera which is not available in the ‘Record Audio Only’ mode as there is no video in this mode.

Muting A Guest’s Microphone
To mute a guest’s microphone, click the microphone icon on the guest’s track.
📝 Once a guest is muted, only they can unmute themself from their view of the Recording Page. A host cannot unmute a guest. This is for privacy reasons.
Turning Off A Guest’s Camera
To turn off a guest’s camera, click the camera icon on the guest’s track.
📝 Once a guest’s camera is off, only they can turn their camera back on from their view of the Recording Page. A host cannot turn a guest’s camera on. This is for privacy reasons.
Dismissing A Guest’s Hand Raise
To dismiss a guest’s hand raise, click the hand icon on the guest’s track or click the ‘[name] has something to say’ message on the guest’s video tile.
Kicking Out A Guest
On occasion, you may need to either:
Kick out a guest who is in green room but hasn’t joined the Recording Page so that you can start a recording
Kick a guest out of a recording that is in progress
To kick out a guest:
Locate the guest’s user track.
Note: If the guest is still in the greenroom the name will be ‘Guest’
Click on the guest’s name.
Click Kick out guest.
Click Confirm on the pop-up.
Result: The guest is kicked out of the Recording Page. On the guest’s end, they get a message that they were kicked out of the call by the host.
