How to maximize the Producer Role

How to maximize the Producer Role

The producer is responsible for putting together the webinar, writing the script, and running the session. Other responsibilities can include generating leads for potential registrants and marketing the session. The producer also guides the team through the webinar and can even moderate the session. 


Force Control

The producer can assign control of the webinar to a presenter, and the presenter will get a pop-up letting them know they are now in control. 

The below icon allows Producers to Force Control.



Webcam Workflow

If the Producer Role is not enabled, each presenter will need to approve webcam sharing each time they want to share their webcam. Other presenters can only ask to have a webcam shared, they do not have control to turn on other presenters' webcams.

If the Producer Role is enabled, consent is only needed once to bypass approval. 



Once consent is given, producers have the ability to turn on a presenter's webcam at any time. The presenters will see the following pop-up which will last up to 5 seconds:


The same will apply to the presenter's audio



Toggle On/Off Attendee List

By default, the attendee list will always be displayed for presenters and producers. To disable the attendee list for presenters, navigate to Presenter Console and within Producer Panel, click the checkbox Visible to all presenters.



Can I toggle On/Off the attendee list within Presenter Console?


Toggle Up/Down Presenter's Webcam Quality 

By default presenter's webcam will be set to Standard (640x360). If HD is enabled for your account, you may toggle the presenter's webcam up to HD (1280x720) or back down from HD to Standard.


Which will open the following pop-up.


Presenter Console Content Access 

Only Producers can add content when the Producer Role is active. If the Producer Role is not being used, all presenters will be able to add and access content within Presenter Console.
