Frequently Asked Questions

Can I create just one test event and reschedule for another day for testing after using it with my admins/moderators/speakers?

  • Yes, you can reschedule the event as long as the end time has not arrived yet.

Can I have more than 25 people at the same time on my test event?

  • No, test events on the Free plan will lock the event to 25 people. We suggest grouping your speakers together and having separate test events for each group.

Does having a test event use up my event credits?

  • No, even if the event is under the same organizer, it does not count towards your billable and usable event credits.
