Can I make my evergreen webinar into a template? Can I copy my evergreen webinar?

Create templates of your Evergreen sessions and webinars to easily apply when creating future sessions with minimal effort.

BigMarker hosts can create templates for their Evergreen sessions as well as copy their Evergreen webinars. This allows them to “save” most of the settings they’ve used in their previous evergreen webinars, then apply them to future sessions with minimal additional effort. Besides saving time, this also reduces the risk of human error and lost data. 

What settings from my original webinar will carry over to the webinar template? 

When hosts create a template of an evergreen webinar, the following settings from the original webinar will be copied to the template. (So you won’t need to input them again.) 

  • All Scheduled Automations
  • Emails and Invitations
  • Presenter information and permissions
  • All session date range and time specifications  
  • All custom registration fields
  • Design settings for the webinar and the landing page
  • Registration Check, which checks registrations from other webinars. 
  • Most settings located in the Edit tab of the webinar dashboard, including: 
    • The description of the webinar (“About Webinar”
    • Webinar Size settings 
    • Ticketing information and settings 
    • Privacy settings 
    • Advanced Settings

Note: We recommend confirming that all of the above settings are correct before creating a template of your evergreen webinar. 

What settings from my original webinar will not carry over to the webinar template? 

The following settings are NOT copied over from the original webinar to the template. Hosts will need to manually add the following information to the new template.  

  • Registrant lists

We recommend that hosts who use webinar templates do the following: 

  • Mute all outgoing emails before creating a template.
