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...
@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.
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.
@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.
