While videos and livestreams work well with delivering content one way, some sessions may require other video tools or options to offer allow participation and collaboration from the audience. If you are looking to host an interactive session using a virtual conference or meeting link, then it is important to know that embedding this type of content will not be possible due to the fact that attendees will need to log into the solution that the conference or meeting is being hosted from.
Your Virtual Event Space, however, can make the process of directing attendees to the external conference or meeting link easy and intuitive by offering a button that can be accessed the session details page.
How to link to your Conference or Meeting
- Select the session that you would like to update from the Sessions Library of your Experience Manager.
- Choose the Video & Conference tab available at the top of the session page.
- Select the Conference option.
- Input the link to your conference or meeting page, and update the Button Text field as needed before saving.
Can I offer a conference link if I have embedded a video into the session?
Space that would typically be offered to showcase a button to your conference link will actually be dedicated to the video that you have embedded into the session - for this reason, you will notice that the Video & Conference tab will only allow a single option to be selected at a time.
If your session will incorporate both video and meeting elements, then we recommend embedding the video portion so that you can offer the best experience to your attendees. The conference or meeting link can instead be made available using either a hyperlink within the session details, or the External Link feature.
