While HeySummit doesn't have native integration with all platforms, you can still use our Live Stream or URL option after creating the session within the webinar platform of your choice, or check out how to set up our integration platforms Zoom or BigMarker.

Note that you don't have to set up a Host and connect to a Webinar Provider under Event Setup for this option.

  1. Choose the talk you are looking to use your webinar platform for. If you are looking to set up a talk, select Content > Talk.

  2. In the new window, click the Add Talk button located at the top right of the screen.

  3. On the next screen, you have 4 options for broadcasting the talk. When using your webinar platform, select the Live Stream or URL option.

  4. Now, choose the External URL option and insert your webinar platform URL in the box provided.

Additionally, know that your attendees will be redirected to the webinar platform once the session starts. The only time your sessions are embedded into the HeySummit page is when you're using our Pre-recorded option or our Live Stream option with one of our supported live streaming providers, like Vimeo or Youtube.

Important Things to Note:

  • Check the attendee flow

Your attendees will not be auto-registered for your session. This means your webinar provider might ask them for registration before joining the session. Check your session's settings if you'd like to turn this off.

  • Check-in early!

If you'd like a quick mic and camera check before the session starts, make sure you and your Speakers join before the session starts.
