Start vs. Start Broadcast vs. Practice Mode

I like to do a quick practice run with my panelists the day prior to the webinar so I use the built-in practice mode.  I have a few questions about this...

  1. If I click "start broadcast" during practice mode will registered attendees be able to join?  If yes, why have a practice mode at all?
  2. Can I permanently remove this from analytics? It's annoying that the practice run shows up in the analytics section and shows registrant and attendee numbers... so I have to filter it out every time I go to the anayltics page.

Re: Start vs. Start Broadcast vs. Practice Mode

@ryanz  I can assure you that Attendees cannot join a scheduled GoToWebinar until an Organizer officially starts the broadcast for all participants.  I'm afraid past webinars cannot be deleted from the history / analytics at this time.

@AshC so does that mean if I click the "Practice" button in the dashboard, then while in the practice mode I click the "Start Broadcast" button, it will be open for registered attendees to hear audio and see what we share?  

 

If the answer to the above question is "yes" then I don't understand the purpose of a practice mode.

@ryanz  Correct.  Practice Mode is strictly for Staff members to connect in advance of the actual broadcast, for the purpose of pre-session coordination etc. 

 

To actually practice a live broadcast I usually schedule a duplicate webinar for all Staff.

Re: Deleting Past Webinars

Deleting "selected" historical webinars and/or meetings is a much needed feature. As noted, there are many "test" webinars that need to be deleted along with webinars that were pre-recorded - start/stop/start again. This would free up server space for GoToWebinar/Meeting and clean-up lists with unwanted webinars - starts to get confusing when pre-recording as to which webinar is the "right" final one.

 

Thanks

Re: How to delete webinar history?

@MJCrowley  Hi there,

The only 'solution' for requesting GoToWebinar history deletion is to create a case with Customer Support.  If you subscribe to this thread, we will let everyone know when/if this feature request is enabled.
