Building Events: Schedule Overview
Last updated: April 27, 2023
After choosing how to start building an Event, the next step is the Schedule section. On the Schedule step in the Event Detail, Organizers select the mode, layout, streaming/recording options, Event duration, and more.
For Free and Essential subscribers, the default mode for Events is "Webinar Mode."
Essential, and Suite-level subscribers have the option to create In-Person Events.
Suite-level Organizers have the additional option to select Live Webinar, On-demand recorded content, Simulated-Live Webinar, or In-Person Event modes.
Because EventBuilder works in conjunction with Microsoft Teams, Organizers must first schedule a Teams or Teams Live Event, copy the meeting URL, and paste the link in the required field.
Next, Organizers add and invite their Event's Presenters and/or Moderators. A paid User Account on the Portal is not necessary for Moderators or Presenters, as there is a Guest Account option available to assign these roles. Organizers can decide whether or not to email Presenter/Moderator access instructions depending on individual need. See Presenter-Moderator Access for more information.
Event Schedule Options on Templates
Some Schedule functions can be set by Organizers at the Template level for consistency and efficiency across Events. Functions available to set at the Template level include:
