How can I invite an attendee to and from a Virtual Stage?

The Host of an event has the ability to promote an Attendee from the audience to a Presenter within a Virtual Stage. The Host also has the ability to demote a Presenter to the audience

 

Promote to Presenter

This feature allows for you to bring an Attendee onstage to ask a question live or share a story without allowing full Presenter permissions during the entirety of the event.

  1. Select the invite to stage icon to the right of the Attendee that you would like to invite to the stage as a Presenter

  1. Once accepted, the attendee will then be promoted to Presenter and brought into the backstage - ready to enter the main stage!

  

Note: if promoting An attendee to stage while live, they will join the backstage i.e. the Attendee will not automatically join the stage!

Demote to Attendee

Once a Presenter has completed their time-slot or you are ready to send an Attendee back to the audience - you can demote them to attendee. Hover over the Presenter's video tile and select the icon to demote them to the audience

This will remove the Presenter role and permissions from this user and allow them to remain in the remainder of the event as an Attendee!

Pro-tip: If you have pre-set listed Presenters via e-mail in the event details within your Admin Dashboard or by code with Access Passcodes - the Presenter can refresh and enter the Virtual Stage as a Presenter despite being demoted.
