You will land on a page that will ask if you would like to create a project from a template or create a new blank project. If you want a step-by-step guide on template creation, click here. For now, select "+ Blank Project":

Creation is an important step - here is where you determine some crucial elements for your project's success. These include:

  • Your project name
  • The design theme your project will use
  • (Optional) What group this project will belong to
  • What project type your project will be:
    • Webinar
    • Event
    • Allhands
    • Content Hub
    • Other
  • What the default language of your project will be - see the below section for how to configure an event with a language other than English as the default. 
  • Whether or not your project will have a landing page
  • Whether or not your project will have registration on or off
  • Your project's thumbnail - this is where you can set the image that will display on the Project dashboard.
  • Your project agenda - you must add at least one session at the time of project creation; don't worry, you can add more sessions or edit the session later as well.

After clicking the "Continue" button, you will be taken to the SItebuilder dashboard. Here you are able to customize your project any way you like. For more resources on page customization, please see our handy guide. Once you are satisfied with your event's look and feel, click the "Publish" button in the upper righthand corner of the page. Selecting the "Copy Link" button to the right of the Publish button will allow you to paste the event URL into your browser where you can see how it will appear to attendees.

If you do not want to make your project page public, simply avoid clicking Publish and use our Preview feature instead. The Sitebuilder will automatically save your work for you until you are ready to publish the final draft of your project.

Creating a Non-English Base Language Project

By default, the Brandlive Platform creates projects using English as the base language, with the ability to add pages for other languages and configure the translation settings accordingly (for more information on our multi-language capability, see this article). However, if your project does not require an English language page at all, you can adjust the project's language settings at the project creation level.

Within the Create New form, simply click into the "Default Language" field and select the language you would like to be the default:

After filling out the rest of the form and selecting "Continue," you'll be taken to the Sitebuilder, where you will see the site fully translated and ready to be edited in the target language. Please note that the editor tools will remain in English.

Creating a Greenroom

With every session that is created in the Brandlive Platform, a corresponding Greenroom is also created. This does not mean you need to use Greenroom to stream your webinar, but it is always an option. To access your session's corresponding Greenroom page, click the "Greenroom" button in the session list of the Project Details screen or in the session settings.
