Additionally, attendees can view upcoming webinars in your series. First, you will need to make a series and add webinars into that series through the main Series dashboard. Automatically, this will populate as a separate Sessions section on the left hand panel where attendees are able to switch between viewing the Presenters and the upcoming Sessions.
You have the option to refresh the sessions lists to continually rotate and display those upcoming sessions. Click the refresh button to do so. It’s important to note that you are only able to refresh this list once every 5 minutes (roughly 300 seconds). The upcoming sessions will show to attendees sometime in this time frame. There will be a prompt giving you the approximate seconds left until you can refresh the sessions list.
In your webinars, you can edit the webinar’s title, about section and update presenter information at any point in your event. This way, you can adjust who is presenting and inform your audience on topics that are getting discussed to update the information in your longer events. Simply click Edit to edit the information. For presenters, you can add new presenters to the event or use the dropdown menu to select from existing presenters.
Note: Only Channel Hosts/Admins, and Presenters with can manage webinar page access are able to edit these settings
