Building Events: Schedule Overview
Last updated: July 2, 2020
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, Essential, and Pro-level subscribers, the default mode for Events is "Webinar Mode."
Essential, Pro 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 and Skype for Business, Organizers must first schedule a Teams or Skype for Business meeting, 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 User account on the Portal is not necessary for Moderators or Presenters, and their Event invitation will include access instructions if they are not current Portal Users. Organizers can decide whether or not to send invites directly from the Portal. See Presenter-Moderator Access for more information.
