Let's get started! 😎
Creating an event on Demio is extremely simple! From your Events, you'll want to select the Add New Event located in the top-right.
From there, you'll be able to choose between three different event types: Standard, Series, and Automated.
Creating a Standard Event! ✅
With the Standard Event, you'll be able to schedule individual Sessions that Registrants can choose from.
All you need to do is set the Event name and you're all set! You'll be able to schedule the event afterwards from the Event summary.
💡 Check out our Checklist for creating a Standard Event.
Creating a Series Event! 🔄
With the Series event, you'll be able to run multiple Sessions that any Registrants can stay registered for.
The set up for a Series Event is the same as a Standard Event, with all the scheduling options occurring afterwards.
💡 Live Event Recording VS. Automated On-demand Session
Every Live Webinar Session is automatically recorded and has a universal link to the Replay Page that you can send to any specific contacts after the Session has been completed. Our Recordings would be a video replay of the session itself.
On the other hand, an Automated Webinar would turn a video (you can use any of your past recordings) into a standalone Event that you can continue to share forever! Registrants would require a brand-new registration in order to view the new webinar. You can enable on-demand availability on your Automated Event to give Registrants an option to watch the video at any time on-demand.
Creating an Automated Event! ✨
With the Automated Event, you'll be able to schedule individual Sessions that Registrants can choose from. However, unlike a Standard Event, these Sessions will run using a pre-recorded video. Check out our Standard vs. Automated article for a full comparison.
Just like any other Event, all you need to do is set the Event name and you're all set! You'll be able to schedule the Event and upload your video afterwards from the Event summary.
💡 Check out our Checklist for creating an Automated Event.
Next, you will see the following notice from the Event summary to Upload Video.
The Registration page will also be disabled until a video is added. It will show the standard message: "This event is not ready."
The video should be in the following formats: .MP4 .MPG .MPEG .M4V .AVI .FLV .WEBM and up to 5 GB. We recommend ensuring that your video is web-optimized before uploading it.
NOTE: If you need to select a past Recording to use as your Automated Event video, you will need to download the recording from Demio and then re-upload it to the Automated Event you created.
When you upload a video, the status message will change to Processing.
The notice bar will also change to the following:
💡 Processing Time: It can take from half the duration of the video up to the full duration of the video to complete processing. For example, a video that is 90 minutes in runtime will process anywhere between 45 to 90 minutes (depending on how busy our queue can get, it can take a little longer at times). With this in mind, you'll want to create your Automated webinar in advance of the time you want to schedule.
Once the video has finished processing, you will now notice the status will change to Active.
You also have the option to Swap Video or Download Media by clicking on the 3 dots.
Like all of the other Event types, the scheduling will be handled afterwards from the Event summary.
