Updates to the Event Preferences

Our team just released a small rework to of the event preferences that should improve your ability to customize your event!

1. We've consolidated a few different settings into a central Room block.

In this new block, you'll find your core settings (chat preference, post-session redirect, additional browser support) and options to manage Presentation Materials and Resources.

Think of it as a central area to manage everything related to what goes on in the event room! new-block-preferences-01-list-new.png

2. The Chat Preference now defaults to Public for new events (any existing events will keep their current settings intact).

We believe that a vibrant and engaging chat makes for a better Attendee experience, so we didn't want any of our users to miss out.

Of course, you'll still have the option to switch these preferences before the event (or even during the event directly in the webinar room). new-block-preferences-02-chat-new.png Keep an eye out for some awesome updates coming later this year around our chat!

More minor changes:

3. We've re-ordered the blocks in a small way that makes more sense.

4. The Admin Team block has been renamed to Presenters & Moderators to better describe the different event admin roles you'll be able to bring on (and to avoid any confusion with account-wide Sub-Users).

Out with the old, in with the new! πŸ“© (Bonus: Replay Emails)

Email Notifications

When our team took a look at our old email notifications, we realized that we strived to be extremely detailed and cover a lot of ground, but swung too far in that direction resulting in an email that was often confusing (especially when it came to our translations) and bloated.

Our new emails change that! We're handing the reigns back over to you, our user.

We've redesigned our new emails to be a great balance between simple and functional. We'll include the core details (event name, date, join link), then loop in your branding, adding in any custom messages you've set, and send it!

(They're designed to work great with any and all brands!)

Replay Emails

Alongside our new email notification designs, our team is finally bringing back our automatic Replay Emails.

You'll be able to enable these to be sent to a specified segment (All Registrants, Attendees, No Shows) following any live sessions.

Jump into the Email Notifications block to get started with both!

Native Safari/Edge Support Is Finally Here! 🎁

We wanted to start the year right by bringing a highly-requested, core foundational item: native Safari and Edge support.

​For both our desktop and mobile/iOS experiences, Attendees will be able to join directly from within their browser.

The option to enable these browsers will be introduced today under Beta for all users. You'll be able to toggle the option directly from your Event Preferences on a per-event basis.

Enabling Additional Browser support will open up Attendee sessions, allowing them to join directly from these browsers on both desktop and mobile.

Keeping it disabled will continue to redirect Attendees to the current screen, redirecting them to actions that would allow them to attend: using an alternative browser (via desktop) or joining through the Demio Viewer app (via mobile).

Our Registration & Replay pages just got a makeover!

We've always strived to make the entire experience of attending webinars an elegant one, and for so many, that experience starts from the moment they arrive on the registration page.

Our old pages worked well for what they were meant to do (capture registrations, host replay recordings), but they were lacking when it came to the elegance factor.

We wanted to change that!

So with that goal in mind, our team went to work to give it a makeover. We're pleased to introduce our new Registration & Replay Editor!

This new update will rehaul the entire experience, bringing you:

  • Powerful live editor that adapts as changes are made
  • Flexible templates to choose from
  • Modular library of elements to build the page to your choosing
  • Complete social sharing customization options
  • A consistent experience across the Registration/Replay pages
  • The ability to disable the Replay
  • And more!

✨BONUS: We've also updated our embed codes for our international languages, so any non-English users will be able to use our new embed options too!

Edit Date/Time for Multiple Date or One Time Events

Previously if you had any contacts registered for an upcoming session, you were unable to change the date or time.

Our team has released a small update that will now allow you to reschedule those! πŸ™Œ

The update lets you adjust the date and/or time of those sessions, as well as opt to notify any affected registrants of the change.

You can also choose to cancel the session outright.

Note: Keep in mind that this will only apply to Multiple Date or One Time events. The scheduled times for Recurring Events will remain locked in once they have active registrants.


In the works: Our team is busy working on a bigger update to our Scheduling options that will make them more robust, but this should help in the meantime!

Beautiful & Flexible Embed Options for Registration

We completely revamped our registration embed options! πŸŽ‰

With more flexibility than ever before, you can design beautiful buttons, links, and forms for your own websites and landing pages.

These new embed options work seamlessly with a wide range of website & landing page builders such as LeadPages, ClickFunnels, Instapage, Unbounce, OptimizePress, Wordpress, Webflow, and more.

  • The ability to change button text
  • Form size or responsive forms
  • Multiple Button Sizes
  • Faster-loading forms and popover forms
  • Smart embeds that will automatically adapt your website font
  • And more!
