Announcing v2 of our HubSpot integration!

As our partnership with HubSpot expands, we're excited to announce the release of our HubSpot integration v2! This update will make tracking your registrants and attendees a lot easier.

Now, you'll be able to get an overview of who's registered and joined your events, as well as a better understanding of engagement levels during live events. From there, you'll be able to use this data to create lists, automation workflows, and reports for all your marketing and sales needs!

Interested in trying it? Install this new version for free by navigating to the Account Settings page, located under the Integrations section. Then click on the HubSpot card, hit Install, and authenticate with your preferred HubSpot account. That's all it takes!

Improved Warnings When Starting or Ending an Event Early

We have noticed that hosts were starting and/or ending events prematurely by (unintentionally) clicking on "Start Event" or "End Event" after joining the stage. To resolve this, we've improved the message in the warning window. Now, when starting or ending an event earlier than expected, you will be prompted with a checkbox to confirm your choice.


Your Team Members Can Now Answer Polls

We have unlocked the ability for team members to answer polls (great for internal events), or go straight to viewing the poll results without submitting a vote (great for external events)! This gives your team members a better chance to engage during events, leaving you more time to focus on what you're presenting.

Note that this update changes nothing for attendees.


Register people manually to your events!

Running a course, training, or internal event? You may now manually register people yourself to the event! No need to share your registration page. This works best for adding small groups of people or maybe adding someone last minute who was unable to register 🚀

This feature is available for all your events, and is accessible via the Share event modal we released a month ago!


Private chat for team members and guest speakers

We are pleased to release a highly requested feature 🎉

Moderators can now communicate privately during online events! This means that all team members and guest speakers can communicate behind the scenes in a separate chat from the audience. The new tab in the chat window allows you to switch between “Everyone” or “Moderators”. To make sure that you don’t confuse the two, you’ll notice a difference in the background color.

New Zapier integration (v2)

Today, we're launching the new version of our Zapier integration (v2)! The first version has been used by thousands of users over the past couple of years, and we decided to slightly refresh it — here's what's new:

  • You don't have to always choose a target event or session to fire triggers anymore. For instance, the 'New registrant', 'Event Published', 'Session started' or 'Session ended' triggers can be filtered for a specific event, but also for all events. It means that you don't have to create one Zap for each event session anymore!
  • We've added a 'Search session' step, which will make it easy for you to find one of your upcoming sessions, for instance to combine it with the 'Create Registrant' action!
  • The 'Create Registrant' action now returns the full information about the newly created registrant (such as the registrant’s unique access link). It means that you can now send your own email reminders!

Don't worry, all your Zaps created using the previous version will stay active! They will be fully functioning until March 15, 2022, when the v1 version will be discarded.

How can you start using this v2 for your new Zaps — or to migrate your old Zaps? All you have to do is create a new Zap, choose the 'Livestorm' app, retrieve your Zapier token from your account settings and paste it in Zapier during the authentication step!

1080p for uploaded videos and recordings

Previously in the room, all pre-recorded videos and recordings were played at 720p max. Now, any new uploaded videos and recordings that are 1080p and above will be played in 1080p (if the viewer has enough bandwidth).

Unifying Webinar plan and Meet plan into one Livestorm plan

Our Meet and Webinar plans are now unified into one single Livestorm plan.

This means the features of Meet Basic and Meet Premium will be added respectively to the Livestorm Basic plan and the Livestorm Premium plan.

There will be no changes for you on your invoices no matter which plan(s) you are on.

The only change is that starting now, moderators of your workspace will be able to create, edit, and delete instant meeting rooms.

For example, if you were on a Webinar Premium plan with just Meet Basic, you will be switched to Livestorm Premium and can now benefit from what we previously considered as Meet Premium 🚀


Design update for the room's sidebar

We have updated the sidebar in the room to match the overall design. While this change is primarily aesthetic, there are a few changes to note:

  • We’ve added the team member and guest speaker label next to the name, rather than on the avatar
  • In the chat, the Dropbox and Google Drive sharing option is now under the "+" icon
  • In the People tab, we have now categorized between connected and disconnected users
  • In the People tab, we’ve added a new animation on the avatar when a user is on stage, as well as a status for their camera and microphone


Tab audio sharing

You will now be able to share the audio from your Chrome or Edge tab while using the screen sharing feature. To do so, you will need to enable the "Share Audio" setting after selecting the Chrome or Edge tab that you want to share.

This feature is available for Chrome 74+ and Edge 79+.
