How to: Create Backup Session Page Links

Create a seamless event experience for attendees - even if technical difficulties occur.

Backup session page links are a tool in the event planner's kit that allow admins to redirect attendees to another page of their choosing in the event that an issue occurs.  Other backups such as another video player or encoder work in tandem with backup page links and should be enabled only after utilizing those methods. The backup session page link is intended to solve for issues related to items other than the video player.

To add a backup link to a session page, select your event in the Brandlive Admin Console and open the event details. 

Then, select the three dots on your session to open a dropdown menu. 

Select the "Session Backup" button for your session:
