To answer your questions here:
- GoToMeeting does allow for the usage of the audio conference without the Organizer present, but does still need the account credentials to start the screen sharing session.
- GoToWebinar is currently testing a Simulated Live scheduling option where the event launches automatically at a specified time, but this is not considered collaborative in nature, as attendees basically watch the presentation and participate in polls + questions.
- Should you wish to cancel, I would suggest contacting our support group directly to confirm your identity and ensure any renewals are turned off.
Please tell me how I can start a GoToMeeting (audio only) w/o the organizer. You say it's possible. I just called support and they told me it was impossible.
I often have several CEOs on the call and me as moderator can often be late from other meetings or just not be able to be present (and not knowing that in advance) and they are stuck in limbo forever leaving a VERY poor experience with GTM.
Please let me know how I can make this happen - I'm admin of our accounts.
Attendees that dial into the meeting conference call by telephone can talk to each other before the meeting starts. One thing to check in your Organizer settings is not set to automatically mute attendees.
