Who can block/unblock people from the webinar room

In order to block someone from the webinar room, you must have moderation rights. This means that any team member or guest speaker assigned to the webinar can block people from the room. They can also unblock people from the webinar room.

What happens when you block someone

They will be disconnected from the webinar immediately and won't be able to join any webinar room from your specific workspace again.

Every time they click on their access link, they will be redirected back to the registration page. 

Note: They will remain a registrant (visible in your People dashboard) and receive any webinar emails you have enabled. However, when they click on their access link, they will not be allowed in the room.

How to block/unblock someone from the webinar room

You can click on the ••• icon next to a profile either in the Chat tab or in the People tab. This will display the option to  Block. Just click to ban that person from your webinar. 

To unblock someone, click on the ••• icon again. They will immediately regain access should they click on their access link again. 

Managing blocked registrants
