Event Pages and Sessions

Channel: The admin account; this is where all events and content live.

Templates: Pre-designed event structures to select from as a starting point for your event. There are currently three templates (Apollo, Studio54 & 02) to select from, and more will be added with future updates. You can change the look and feel of each template by customizing with color palettes, fonts, images, and more. 

Events: The event is the occurrence itself; the reason for the virtual broadcast and need for a virtual solution. 

Landing Page: The "front door" for your event, where anyone with the URL lands to get details and register.

Homepage: The page viewers access after registering for the event. Here they can access sessions and other content once they register

Sessions: Session pages are the space for your live broadcast, pre-recorded content, or breakouts. These are individual pages where viewers can watch videos (live broadcasts or on-demand); engage in breakouts and firesides; use the chat feature, access polls, engage in discussions using Questions, view documents; and see similar or upcoming sessions.
