Presenters' guide

Check your setup

Before joining an event, you can visit our System check page to test and troubleshoot your network, camera, and microphone setup, and explore our Best practices guide to enhance your experience.

Get on stage

You can join the stage by clicking the Get on stage button towards the bottom of your screen.

If you don't see a Get on stage button, you'll need to ask the host of the event to make you a host.

Once you're on the stage, a Leave stage button will appear in the same spot for you to exit the stage.

Alternatively, you can click on your own stream or avatar to add yourself to the stage or to remove yourself from the stage.

Toggle your camera and microphone

When you're on the stage, you'll be able to toggle your camera and mic using the controls located towards the bottom of your screen.

If you have multiple devices, you can use the Settings menu on your stream to select your desired camera, microphone, and speaker.

If you're running into issues with your camera or microphone, consult our Troubleshooting guide.

Share your screen

You can share your screen by clicking on the Share your screen button towards the bottom of your screen. You will be prompted to share your whole screen or to select a specific window or app to share.

To stop sharing your screen, simply click the green Stop sharing your screen button towards the bottom of your screen.

Play a video

While editing the event, you can upload videos to the event in the Features section of the event overview. Use H264/mp4 @ 720p for best results.

Once the video is uploaded, navigate back to the event and click on Play video in the menu next to the event title.

Interact with your audience

Add someone to the stage

You can add someone from the audience to the stage by clicking on their stream or avatar and clicking on Add to stage in the user menu.

To remove someone from the stage, you can click on their stream or avatar and click Remove from stage in the user menu.

Conduct audience polls

You can use the audience summary header to gauge audience reactions and conduct simple polls related to your event's content.
