We've answered every possible question you may have about our multi-session event feature. We've also linked out to guides that break it down step-by-step.
What is a session?
Every Crowdcast has one session by default. A session is made up of the following:
Live broadcast (session time depends on plan selected)
Questions & Topics
Does Crowdcast have breakout rooms?
Yes, we call them multi-sessions.
How many multi-sessions can I have?
It's recommended to have 70 (or less) sessions per event. These sessions can occur back to back or spread out throughout the duration of your subscription.
How long can my sessions be?
Starter and Lite Plans:
2 hours per session
4 hours per session
6 hours per session
Can I have sessions going live at the same time?
Yes, you can have sessions live at the same time. There's a few things to keep in mind such as having multiple admins, calling your audience to the event, and informing your audience on the agenda that are covered below in our "How to create a multi-session event" guide.
When should I create a multi-session event?
We suggest creating a multi-session event when you have an event that last for several days, or when you have a series that you want your attendees to just register once for and have access to throughout the length of the series.
Sessions can help organize your events for a variety of use cases.
Hosting a virtual conference: Add a session for each speaker or discussion. Your audience will have a dedicated chat, Q&A and polls for each topic.
Creating a course: With a dedicated session for each class or module, your students can use the same URL to access each lesson and discussion.
Got an extra long webinar: Broadcasts last 120 minutes each. Add extra sessions for more time and for better event organization and replays. For example, you can create one session for the presentation and another for Q&A.
How do I create a multi-session event?
We've outlined exactly how to create a multi-session event in our step-by-step guide.
Now that my session is over, how do I call the audience to the next upcoming session?
To make sure your audience gets into the event and lands on the right session, you'll want to follow the steps listed in our how to create a multi-session guide.
When are reminders sent to attendees
In multi-session events, reminders are sent when the "send reminder email" box is ticked and the session start times are more than 120 minutes apart. If you run an event over several days each session will trigger a reminder. If you run an entire day of back to back events, reminders will only be sent a maximum of every two hours.
You can send emails manually within the event, to all registered attendees, at any time.
Can I create a multisession event from the app?
Please note that you can only create single session events from the iOS app. Multi-session events must be created from a browser.
