How to Set Specific Times and Dates to Publish and Un-publish On Demand Content

Customize and automate the publishing of your on-demand content by setting times and date to automatically publish and un-publish the recording

Hosts can set specific times and dates to automatically publish and un-publish their video content. This allows hosts to customize and automate the publishing of their on-demand content.

Hosts can set the publishing or un-publishing of their content on the Edit tab of the Manage Webinar page based on when the session ended. There are two options: Relative Time or Specific Time. Relative Time is a generalized time frame that allows hosts to be more flexible when publishing content where Specific Time sets the auto-publish for a specific time and date. 

How does automatically publishing on-demand content impact my automatic post-webinar emails? Automatically publishing on-demand content triggers any post-webinar emails that you have set to send after the event. 

Note: You can also disable in advance if you do not wish to send communications to attendees.


Can I manage multiple live-to-on-demand recordings? This feature allows hosts to manage multiple live-to-on-demand recordings, as well as on-demand hosting content availability, without needing to log in to the event manually. 

How does automatic on-demand publishing impact Virtual Events hosts? This feature also automatically displays and removes the “Watch Now” button on the event agenda.
