🤝 Guests in multiple events

Good news for those running events with collaborators. The same guest can now be added to one event of each user in your account. Previously, it was just one event in the whole account.

Users under a restricted domain will not be able to create their own accounts or be invited to accounts outside of the main one, excluding Guest access. Available for Enterprise and Institution licenses with at least 10 additional users.

Other improvements

  • When running a quiz from Google Slides or PowerPoint, you can now set an interim leaderboard and generate a random quiz question
  • You can add multiple polls with one click to your presentation in Google Slides and PowerPoint
  • We made Admin 20-50% faster

Moderator's announcements

New features

📣Moderator's announcements

This may have happened to you during your last meeting: The session was running, participants kept asking one question after another in Q&A and then you suddenly needed to share some important information with your whole audience. We are sure you somehow managed to solve that. Anyway, now it’s easier than ever before, you can use the moderator's announcements!

This feature allows you to push a notification at the top of the Participant mode with a message for everyone to see. We also support links as part of announcements, so feel free to use this feature to share various URLs with your audience. Available for Teacher/Professional and above plans.

Learn how to create announcements

🔗 New shareable link to invite your team

If you are an account administrator, there is a new way to invite your team easily - by using a shareable link. There is some customization available based on your preference, e.g. you can specify the email domains that are allowed to use the link. This feature is available for Corporate+ and Department+ plans.

Learn how to use it here

  • Guests can now leave events by themselves from My events page
  • If you have exports available, you can now see Question sentiment. This works only in English language for now.

Google Meet Integration Private Beta

New features

🎥Google Meet Integration Private BETA

Our team is currently working hard on a new integration with Google Meet.

If you are switching to remote, we are happy to advise on the whole technical setup and discuss your specific use cases. This is not a regular webinar event, but rather a personal call. Schedule a call now!
