Lead a webinar

The webinar is started by the employee who created it. Before you start, we recommend «Do not disturb» working status, that incoming calls and notifications do not distract you from the broadcast.

Then open the video conference card and click Start webinar.

The «Participants» tab displays a list of listeners who have joined the webinar.

Check the connection

Before starting a webinar, the host should make sure that the participants can hear and see it well. To do this, listeners can take a short survey about the quality of communication. It will appear in the webinar window automatically 30 to 40 seconds after the broadcast starts.

The organizer will immediately receive the survey responses and will be able to understand if there are problems. After correcting them (checking the microphone, webcam), the moderator can start the survey again.
