Setting Up A Virtual Event


Creating a virtual event is easy- simply set the "Event Format" drop down to "Virtual"




What Happens Once An Event Is "Virtual?"


Once an event is setup as a virtual event, the virtual component will appear on the event detail page, where an admin or employer can add a virtual meeting URL. Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, WebEx, GoToMeeting URLs can be identified and will reveal their corresponding logo once added.




How Will I Know If An Event Is Missing A Virtual Meeting URL?


If an event is missing a virtual meeting URL, a red badge entitled "Virtual Meeting URL Missing" will appear below the event information header. Additionally, you may use the "Virtual Meeting URL Missing" filter on the event list page to identify virtual events that have not yet had a virtual meeting URL added to them.




What Do Students/Alumni See? What about calendar sync?


Students and alumni will see the virtual meeting URL for the event, and the URL will also be present as the "Location" in a calendar sync object or .ICS file. If a student/alumni registers for an event and the URL has not yet been added, the calendar sync object will be re-synced once the URL is added.




Can I Hide The Virtual Meeting URL From Students/Alumni Unless They Register?


Yes! Simply select "Registration Required" when creating the event. If a student/alumni views a virtual event that requires registration, they will not be able to access the URL unless they have registered:


Unregistered Student View, "Registration Required"


Unregistered Student View, "Registration Non-Required"
