Following is an overview of the information we require to set up the registration screen and email templates for the webinar.


Registration screen


For this screen we need:

  • Date: 
  • Start time: 
  • End time: (e.g. 45 mins from start time) 
  • Title: 
  • Description: 2000 characters max 
  • Logo: For best results, choose an image no larger than 400x200 pixels and 100KB. 
  • Custom image: For best results, choose an image no larger than 200x200 pixels and 100KB. 
  • Additional fields: (e.g. job title, organisation, postcode etc) …. best not to go to overboard on these fields or people will not bother with the registration. Keep in mind other info can be collected after the session.


Optionally we can also customise the colour scheme for the registration page which may allow for your corporate colours to be used. Three colours (in hexadecimal format) are supported:

  • Background: #XXXXXX (colour of the area outside the border)
  • Header font: #XXXXXX
  • Border: #XXXXXX


Emails 


The registration confirmation and webinar reminder email templates are the next things to populate:

The customisable information for this email is:

  • Email Subject:

  • Custom text block 2: 2048 characters max (this sits at the end of the email)

Waiting room


The waiting room is what people see when they arrive on the day prior to the presenter screen being shared.

  • Photo: Maximum size is 100x100 pixels and 100KB. Pulse+IT can adjust the image dimensions if required.

Welcome message

  • When attendees arrive, this text will be displayed in the GoToWebinar control panel (Limit: 950 characters).


Handouts


The GoToWebinar supports up to five handouts, which can be downloaded by attendees. These documents (typically PDFs) need to be uploaded prior to the session and can be referenced by presenters during in the webinar.


The important thing to remember is we can change this information as we go, but it's best to get it as correct as possible before we start promoting the registration link page as registrations trigger the confirmation email immediately.
