IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Session Push Notifications will only appear for the attendee's bookmarked sessions.

  • All Session Push Notifications will appear for event admins.

  • Pop-Up Notifications will only appear for Main Stage Sessions.

  • Pop-Up Notifications will only appear if currently watching a Main Stage Session.

Session Push Notifications

The Session Push Notification will appear 1 minute before the start of the session at the bottom left corner of the screen. It will be labeled as Upcoming Session on top, and the session's title will appear in the body. The Join Session button will redirect them to the session. Attendees will see these push notifications if they have bookmarked the sessions.

Attendees will also see a notification when a bookmarked session is rescheduled. The notification will indicate the session's new schedule.

Main Stage Pop-Up Notifications

Main Stage sessions are the only sessions with pop-up notifications that will only appear if the attendee is currently in a main stage session under these conditions:

  • The current session is still streaming, and the next session is about to start.

  • The current session has ended, and the next session is starting in the next 15 minutes.

  • The current session has ended, and the next session starts after 15 minutes. This pop-up will also show a countdown to the next session.

    Note: If the current session uses Vimeo for streaming and the next session starts after 15 minutes, the pop-up will not appear.

Attendees will have the option to join the next session from the pop-up if it's starting in the next 15 minutes. If they choose to close the pop-up, it will change to a header, which will allow attendees to continue watching the current session and see the option to join the next one by clicking the Join Now button on top.
