Still Unable to Mute Host in Rendezvous??

A few years ago, there was a thread where someone requested that 'Hosts should be able to mute themselves'. ( https://telestreamforum.forumbee.com/t/q5fc07/mute-mic-in-rendezvous-dashboard#h4j2gf )

Seems a very reasonable request. For instance, lets say a presenter is giving a 1 hour Powerpoint presentation, with little to no need to hear from us. A simple Mute button for the producer to press would do just fine.

Was this ever implemented, and if not was there a reason for the decision?   The only/best workaround I see is either buying a headset/mic with a built in Mute button, or asking the speaker to press to turn off the volume/speaker button on their Rendezvous side. Thereby 'muting' me, but if a catastrophe occurred and I needed to chime in  they wouldn't know to turn their speaker back on to hear me.

    Uncheck the Host's mic and it won't be sent to the guests.
    You can check (include) or uncheck (mute) any source going to the guests.
    You also have the option to send the Live Output to the guests. 
     

     

    And if you need to speak to the guests "silently" you would enable text chat at the start of your session. Guests could be muted too. Everyone can text chat if they need to communicate.
