Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need Slack or Google Chat to communicate with the other presenters?

    • No! Team Chat in the Presenter Console allows presenters to communicate privately during webinars. Only accessible on the left-hand navigation bar.

  • What are the types of connections presenters need to join the webinar?

    • Webcam and Mic: Presenters connect with both webcam and microphone for a full video and audio experience.

    • Audio Only: Presenters can connect with audio only for scenarios where the video isn't essential, which is ideal for bandwidth limitations.

    • Dial-In: Webinar.net facilitates a dial-in option, allowing presenters to join sessions via phone. Accessible dial-in numbers are conveniently located by clicking the dial-in button or checking the information icon at the top of the toolbar on the left side of the screen.
