About Practice Sessions
Practice sessions allow the host, presenter, and other panelists to practice an event before starting it. They're similar to a dress rehearsal—An event production team can perform all event functions without event attendees viewing the event.
If a teleconference has been started in the main event, when the host starts a practice session, the production team automatically enters a subconference, away from the main teleconference. Conversations in the subconference are private. Therefore, attendees outside the practice session cannot hear the practice.
Start a Practice Session
Before you begin
Before the host starts a practice session, make sure of the following:
All panelists have joined the event.
The host, presenter, and panelists have their presentation material ready to share in the practice session.

In the Event window, select.
The practice session starts. The host, presenter, and panelists automatically join the practice session. Event attendees see a message in the Event window that the production team is currently in a practice session. Attendees can view any presentation that the host or presenter opened before starting the practice session.
Rehearse the event. Open presentations or prepare a poll questionnaire that the production team can use during the actual event.
