Product Update: Event Buffer Time

When you create an event and define the start and end time, you can also add buffer time to give your team peace of mind so they can do sound checks, run-throughs, and feel prepared to go live.

When you create an event and define the start and end time, you can also add buffer time to give your team peace of mind so they can do sound checks, run-throughs, and feel prepared to go live.

Adding Set Up & Post Event Time

First, define your start and end time. Then add the amount of buffer time you need. Buffer time can be added in 15 minute increments. The event start and end time that will be displayed to all members or guests who are not a presenter in the event will be the general start and end time you define. Only members who have been added as a presenter will see the added buffer time on the event details.

The producer can only start the event once the buffer time begins. For example, if Sally is a producer for an upcoming event that starts at 3:30 PM, and she added 15 minutes buffer time, she can start the event on the producer tablet at 3:15 PM for presenters to join.

During the setup and post event buffer times, presenters and camera feeds can join the event, but not online viewers. If everyone is ready to start early, the producer can click the "Allow All Members" button let viewers online into the event.
