  3. Add a banner image (image with a 16:9 aspect ratio, such as 1920x1080 or 1280x720 recommended). The event name and banner will be displayed in the embedded module, and your indicated start time will be used to display a countdown timer for your Attendees.

Once your event is created, you can preview it by selecting the eye on the event card within the Events tab. While previewing your event, you can quickly share it, grab the embed code, and even enter the backstage and go live!

When you are ready, the next step is to set-up your event access. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Registration tab
  2. Select from Registration (most common), Third-party registration, or No Registration. You can learn more about the registration options here.
