Practice a Webinar

The Practice feature allows organizers to run an unlimited number of practice sessions before the scheduled webinar start time. All settings and customization made to a webinar, including Polling, will apply to the practice session. Because attendees cannot join a practice session, using this feature is a great way for organizers and panelists to get comfortable with the presentation flow. If a practice session runs up to the start time of the scheduled webinar, organizers can start the live webinar from Practice mode.

The Practice feature is currently unavailable for Mac users.

To start a practice webinar

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. On the My Webinars page, scroll to the webinar session you want to practice and click the Practice button.
  3. Panelists and organizers can join the practice session by clicking on the link provided in their invitation email.

Note: While in Practice mode, registrants will not be able to join the webinar.

To start a webinar from Practice mode

  1. While in Practice mode, open the Organizer Control Panel.
  2. At the top of the Control Panel, click Start.
    Your webinar will officially begin, and all registrants will be allowed to join.
