  5. To edit a conference event, click the pencil icon to the right of the event you wish to change.

You will be able to access and view the history of the changes that have been made to a conference event after you edit it.

When conference fields can be edited


  • After an event has been published, you have the option of adding alternative hosts to a session. In order to save the new alternative host details, you must press Enter in the text box after you have entered the alternative host’s email address and then click Save in the Save dialog box. Upon completing the editing process and saving the changes to your event, a special-role ticket will be emailed to the alternate host, giving them a link to access the event.
  • During an event, event hosts can update the settings for live streaming and cloud recordings after tickets have sold out, after the event is live, and even while the event is still happening. As well as this, hosts can also enable settings for live streaming and recording for events that are currently being held but have not yet been published, after a ticket has been sold for that event.
