Webinars are available on version 41.4 and later sites.

The number of people you can invite to an webinar depends on the license purchased. Webinars can include up to 30,000 people. A webinar in webcast view is required if you have more than 25,000 attendees.

Webinars in webcast view aren't available for Webex for Government.

After you schedule a webinar, you get a confirmation email, as well as an email to forward to attendees.

Add the basics by providing the following information:

  • Topic—Choose a topic that people will recognize and get excited about.
  • Webinar password—Use the password that's provided or enter your own. Attendees must enter this password to join your webinar.

Set up your panelists by including the following information:

  • Panelists—Enter the email addresses of the people you’re inviting to help you run your webinar. If they have an account on this site, you can select next to their name if you want them to be a cohost.
  • Panelist password—Use the password that's provided or enter your own. Panelists must enter this password to be part of your webinar panel. If panelists don't enter this password when they join your webinar, they just join as an attendee.

     

    If a panelist has an account on the same site where the webinar is hosted, they'll just have to sign in. If they don't have an account on the same site, they'll be prompted to enter this panelist password.
