How to preview an event as an organizer

  • Updated


While creating your event, you as the organizer may want to see what it looks like before the scheduled time.

To do that, go into your event dashboard and click on the Preview Registration button to preview your registration page or the Preview Event button to preview the main event.


Clicking the Preview Event button takes you to the waiting room of the event. This is the reception page your attendees will see before the event begins.


Note: Attendees will not see the event preview button on the reception page. Only organizers have access to this. 

Here, attendees can use the chat area, engage in polls if there are any available, and access the people tab where they can schedule 1:1 meetings with other attendees.

Organizers are also able to disable chat, polls or Q&A, clear chat, post an announcement, as well as publish or schedule polls

Once the event has started, clicking the Preview Event button will bring organizers directly to the online event venue as the waiting room will be already disabled. 

Previewing the event creates an organizer pass that allows the organizers to join an event without having to buy a ticket.

Note: It is highly recommendable that event organizers access the event by previewing it from the Event Dashboard as described in this guide. If they access an event via a magic link later, a new registration will be created while their organizer pass and all related data (created polls, messages, scheduled meetings) deleted.
