How to Set Up an Online Event

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Events Admin can access the Events Admin window.

The {online_meeting_url} and {online_meeting_joining_info} tokens must be added to the Event Template to display the content added to an event's Meeting URL and Joining Info fields on the event page. For further information, see Event Templates.

If tickets have been added to the event, only ticket holders will be able to see the 'join' link 5 minutes before the event starts on the event lists and the events page.
If the event is not ticketed, the event will show the 'join' link to users based on the selected view permission option.

Remind your ticket holders of the Meeting URL before the event begins. For further information, see How to Send a Message to Ticket Holders.

For further information, see Events in Events Admin and Event Templates.
