Invite Up to 6 People on Stage

You can now invite up to 6 people on stage at once! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป

6-ppl-on-stage-screenshot-s.png

As you may know, up until now, you were only allowed to have 2 people on stage at the same time on Livestorm. We lifted this limit up to 6.

This should give you more flexibility when hosting live sessions with a large panel of presenters, or when you'll need to share several screens at once.

When we say 6 people, it is in fact 6 live streams. Here are a few combinations you can do:

Examples

  • Have 4 people on stage while sharing 2 screens
  • Host a panel with 5 participants and 1 interviewer
  • Have 3 people, all sharing their own screen

Resend Access Links ๐Ÿ’Œ

Send access links directly from your webinar dashboard ๐ŸŽ‰


As a host, you can now resend the access link to your registrants. We believe this will help in cases where your registrants have trouble finding their access links to join your webinar.

In order to do this:

  • Go the the "People" dashboard of your webinar
  • Click on a registrant to open up their profile. You'll see the "resend access link" button at the top right corner of that page.
  • Click resend and that's it! We will open up your email client so you can b mail their access link yourself ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Room Connection Alerts๐Ÿ’ก

As we get ready to wrap up this month, we want to introduce you to our newest improvement:

Connection Alerts ๐Ÿšฅ

We shipped a new notification system in the webinar room. Basically, we will let you know in case there are any issues with your internet connection.

From now on, you will get a popup notification if there's a problem with your internet. You'll be able to carry on with your session once we're able to restore your connection.

We hope this will help you gain further control over your streaming environment throughout your sessions ๐Ÿ™Œ

Last but not least, we fixed some issues related to the daylight savings change of Outlook calendar links ๐ŸŽ‰

As always, please let us know if you observe any issues. Just shoot us an email at hello@livestorm.co or ping us in the chat. You can also send us your suggestions and requests through our public roadmap.

Replay Analytics ๐Ÿ”

Replay analytics has been no doubt a highly demanded feature among our users. So as a team, we're very happy to deploy it before we wrap up February for good ๐ŸŽ‰

From now on, you'll be able to get real insight into your replay views. This will help you:

  1. Have a global view of the number of replay views for all webinars
  2. Display the total number of replay views of your webinar
  3. See which participants / attendees have viewed the replay

You can activate the replay views via the "active columns" (found on your main dashboard and in your "People" menu).

Also, bear in mind that we'll display this replay data for all your previous sessions ๐Ÿ˜‰

We hope you find this update useful. Feel free to ping us in the chat if anything comes up!

Improved Text Editor & Norwegian support ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด

Features & Improvements:

We're excited to introduce our improved text editor๐ŸŽ‰ This means further styling options and more branding for your registration pages! Here are some highlights on what's new and improved:

  • Image upload: This feature just got a lot easier. You can now add images directly from your computer, you won't need to use image hosting any more ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Video embed: You can add videos to your registration pages! ๐ŸŽฅ

  • Custom code: You can add HTML code to your page via our text editor by clicking on "Source". ๐Ÿ’ก Pro tip: You can even add script tags ๐Ÿ‘

  • New language: Norwegian is now available as a language. You can select it in your webinar settings. The language will apply to the webinar room, landing page and notification emails. Feel free to reach out to us at hello@livestorm.co if you'd like to make a new language request ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bug Fixes:

Polls: We've fixed some minor issues with the polls in the webinar room. Your draft polls will no longer be unselected when you search for a poll.

Company widget: We've fixed the display issue of the company widget. Now we'll only show what you've filtered to display as your upcoming events. Your visitors will no longer see the option to reset the filters.

Email variables & Poll improvements

Livestorm Holiday Special ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ

The end of 2017 is upon us, but we've kept ourselves busy with new features and bug fixes before calling it a year! You can read all about our Christmas release in our dedicated blog post. Here's a quick recap:

Email variables

You can now add email variables to your custom emails! We were well aware of the need for a better UX, so we're just happy to make this happen! We've used the Liquid template language to develop this feature, and we'll keep adding more variables further down the road ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Poll improvements

Duplicate polls

Before, you had to re-create the same polls over and over again which was a waste of time. We've shipped a new feature that'll allow you to reuse polls from previous sessions. We'll display your previous polls as drafts so you can add them to your next session in one click.

Easier display of poll answers

In order to display the poll answers you had to filter your event with a session before. This is no longer necessary! Use active columns (on your People dashboard) to select and display this data as you wish.

Happy holidays!

The Livestorm team ๐ŸŽ„

Webinar room: Edit an answer ๐Ÿ–

Recurring Events

Today we're excited to introduce Livestorm V2 along with our newest features and improvements! You can read all about it in our dedicated blog post, but here's a quick recap:

Recurring Events ๐ŸŽ‰

From now on, you can create recurring events in Livestorm! No more going back and forth duplicating your webinars. Schedule multiple sessions for your event in one sitting.

If you host weekly demos like us, this is the feature for you ๐Ÿ––

Check out our documentation to learn more about this feature.

We'll be hosting a quick demo of 15 mins every Wednesday to walk you through this new feature. Register for our upcoming session here.

Zapier Update ๐Ÿ”Ž

We also redesigned parts of our Zapier integration to fit the new recurring events. You can now create new registrations with the custom fields that you added in your webinar form.

๐Ÿšจ If you have a Livestorm-Zapier integration, please update your Zaps now.

Mute Notifications ๐Ÿ””

Engaging webinars often have a lot of messages, questions, polls- resulting in a lot of notification sounds. That may get a bit distracting ๐Ÿค“

In order to really focus on your presentation, you can mute the notification sounds in the webinar room.

New Languages ๐ŸŒ

We've added two new languages to Livestorm: Dutch and Polish. You can select them in your webinar settings (under Timezone & Language).

Improved Data Export (XLSX & ODS) ๐Ÿš€
