Recurring Events are great for webinars hosted very regularly like product demos or training sessions. Your attendees will be able to pick a session on one landing page instead of going to a different page for each session. This changes some of the main aspects of Livestorm. Read below to learn everything about Recurring Events.
IN THIS ARTICLE:
You can now schedule multiple sessions for a recurrent event in one sitting! We believe this feature will enable faster webinar preparation and easier webinar management. No more going back and forth duplicating and reconfiguring your webinars. We take care of that for you 💪
All recurring webinars will be grouped together on your webinar list for an easier view:
Scheduling Multiple Sessions
You can schedule multiple sessions for your webinar in your settings:
Editing / Deleting Sessions
When you scroll over a session, you will see the "Edit session" button. Click on it to edit your upcoming session, or delete it.
Important note: If people have already registered for a session, you won't be able to delete that specific session. Instead, you can cancel it. This way, all remaining emails will be canceled as well. If a person tries to connect to the webinar room for that session, s/he will be redirected to a page stating that the webinar is canceled.
P.S. You can filter the past and canceled sessions in that same window.
We've made some changes to the overall email invitations. From now on when you invite someone to register for your event, they'll receive an invitation containing a general link to the registration page.
When they click on the link, they'll be redirected to the registration page which will display the closest session. The visitor has the option to display all upcoming sessions from the same page ( as seen on the section "Registration Page" below).
Same rule applies when you share the URL of your recurring webinar. When a visitor clicks on the shared link, the upcoming session will be displayed automatically for registration.
Your registration page will show the closest upcoming session by default. You and the visitors have the option to choose and display a specific session on the same page.
The same concept applies to the webinar room. From now on, you can easily navigate between your past and upcoming sessions.
When you click on the session, you'll get a popup window to select the session you'd like to display:
Note: If you're not on the right session, you'll see a warning in the room 🚨
We've made some significant changes to our People dashboard. At a first glance, the total number of visits and registrations of your recurring webinar will be displayed here.
Attendance / Registration Analytics
If you'd like to display the attendance / registration analytics of a specific session, you can run a filter in the same menu. You can do that by clicking on the "filter with a session" button. You'll get a popup window where you'll be able to select the session you'd like. This way you can see the data on attendance and registration after the end of a session ✅
🚨 Note that you can also use active columns to see the session people have registered or attended:
The replays of your recurring webinars will be all grouped together under the " Replay" tab for simpler access. You'll be able to view and download all your replay from one screen.
