Here we'll teach you how to create a multi-session event and how to elevate the attendee experience. Skip ahead to learn about the call audience to session button here.

How to Create a Multi-Session Event

Add New Sessions to an Event Already Created

Go into your event page and select "Add New Session" from the "Options" dropdown menu, located in the upper right-hand corner.

How to Create a Multi-Session Event

First, create an event like normal. If you're following along for the first time, I recommend creating a test event.

Next, you'll be able to edit whether you have a single session or multi-session event by clicking "Edit" under Schedule.

By default the event type is set as a single session event.. To create a multi-session event, select "Multi-session".

From here you can enter a session name, description, start time and date. Click "Done" to save that session, then select "Add a session" to continue adding sessions to your event.

Once you've added all of the sessions for this event, go ahead and click "Done" at the top of the Schedule.

Add the rest of your event information like description, cover photo, etc. and click "Save".

Once you've hit "Save", you'll be taken into the event. Notice at the top left, underneath the event title a section called "SCHEDULE".

When you click on "SCHEDULE", it will expand and show all of the sessions you've just created.

Attendees can also watch any replays of specific live sessions from this schedule bar.

How to Use the Call Audience to Session Button

When you have an event with multiple sessions and a specific session has ended, a good practice is to mark the session over and call the audience to the upcoming session.

Why would I want to mark the session is over?

When attendees visit your event's link, they'll be redirected into the most current session. Also, when someone who isn't registered lands on your event page, it will show up as the next session instead of showing a session that has already passed.

Here's How to Do it

Right after your live session has taken place and you've hit "End broadcast", click the schedule located under the title of your event.

You'll see a dropdown menu where you will select "Mark session over."

Then click on your next session and you'll see that you can click call audience to session.

​Once you do that, the main URL of your event will send attendees to the upcoming session that is going to go live instead of showing a past session.

Important notes

  • Multi-session events must be created from a browser. You can create single session events from the iOS app.

  • Attendees will be called to the desired session if you click the "call audience to session button" while an attendee is watching replay of an earlier session.

  • If you have two sessions that are titled exactly the same, the CSV analytics for your event will show data for only one of those sessions. You can wait until your event is over, but you need to modify one of those session titles in order to view the analytics for both.
