1. Overview: Before Event
1. Important to know before starting
In this "Before" tutorial, we want to help you set up your own event on our Veertly platform. The tutorial is separated into 20 chapters. Ending with a checklist, some tips and tricks, and some troubleshooter tips.
In the second chapter, we will walk you through the process of setting the event up. But first, we want to make you familiar with some important things.
We recommend using the Chrome browser or the latest versions of Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
Once the event is created, you will receive an email with the Veertly Cockpit link, which will allow you to edit your event's settings.
And this is how the cockpit looks like:
On the left, you have a navigation bar: event details, access control, tags, main stage, configuration, look & feel, social wall, attendees, recordings, dashboard, and operations.
On the top, you have all the important information and functionalities you need to enter your events, like event link and backdoor access.
On the bottom right, you can reach us if you have any questions or get stuck.
And this is how the app looks like for Hosts (for participants, there would not be the broadcast button in the navigation bar):
On the left, you have the navigation bar depending on what you have set, the buttons lobby, main stage, rooms, networking, attendees, chat, and polls are visible. Additionally, you could add a social wall. Broadcasts are only visible for hosts. At the very end of the navigation bar, you'll find the help chat.
On the top bar, you can leave the event, and by clicking on your avatar, edit your profile, change the language, set the settings, edit your event and manage your attendees.
