Welcome to the latest update from Sessions! We're thrilled to introduce some exciting new features and updates to enhance your meeting and webinar experiences.
New: My Offers
In our latest update, we introduced the exciting "My Offers" feature, allowing you to share proposals in a truly captivating manner. This feature is a game-changer for converting and selling during sessions and webinars.
With this new feature, you can create and display offers directly on the main screen, enriching your sessions with eye-catching visuals and compelling content. Each announcement can include a small image, an attention-grabbing title, descriptive text, and a custom call-to-action (CTA) button. The CTA button enables you to seamlessly redirect participants to external links, making it easier than ever to capture leads or to sell digital products, courses, services, etc.
The best part? You have complete control over your offers. Enable it in your session's settings, and you're ready to import or create announcements on the fly, ensuring your content remains fresh and relevant.
My Offers can only be managed by the host and co-hosts ensuring a streamlined and organized approach to relevant promotions with your audience.
New: Custom Emails
As the host of a session, event, booking, or room, you have the power to personalize and tailor the emails sent to your participants. By default, all emails are enabled, but you have the freedom to customize or disable them according to your preferences.
You can craft customized emails for sessions, events and webinars, bookings, and rooms. To send personalized emails, simply sync your Google or Microsoft email account with Sessions. If you ever decide to disconnect your email account, the system will automatically revert back to the regular Sessions email templates.
We’re excited to announce new updates to our "Backstage" feature. This feature creates the perfect environment for hosts, assistants, and speakers to rehearse their meetings and events for a flawless performance and customer success.
In the Backstage, you can conduct a dry run before your event begins. This is your private, separate space where you can perfect your event's agenda, adjust tools, and fine-tune the content, all without attendees being able to join. Gone are the days of last-minute hiccups. Now, you can ensure everything runs smoothly.
The flexibility of Backstage is truly remarkable. You're no longer limited to starting the dry run just one hour before the event. Feel free to initiate it at your convenience, allowing you to work through every detail when it suits you.
Once the dry run concludes, the content in widgets, including Chat, Polls, and Questions, is wiped clean, providing a fresh start for your event. This ensures you begin your webinar with a clean slate, free from previous discussions or interactions.
Updated: My Product Tool
The updated "My Product" feature from Sessions is a product demo game-changer that empowers you to showcase your app, website, or any browser-based platform directly within your meetings or events.
My Product tool makes presenting your digital platform effortless. It's a dynamic tool that enhances your sessions by providing a visual, interactive element. You can demonstrate your product live, allowing attendees to explore and engage with it directly.
During a live session, attendees can request control of the showcased tool, enabling them to try your product in real-time. This level of engagement fosters collaboration and learning, enhancing the overall experience.
Updated: Team Routing Bookings
With the ability to assign up to 20 workspace collaborators to a booking, collaboration has never been easier. This allows you to distribute booked sessions across your team, sharing the load and ensuring a smooth operation. Collaborators can also enjoy varying permissions when it comes to editing the booking page, assigning sessions, or accepting bookings.
When a booking is reassigned to a newly assigned person, they will receive an email notification and the booked session will automatically be added to their own Sessions account. The original person who was initially assigned will also receive an email notification informing them that the meeting has been reassigned.
Moreover, you can customize the allocation of bookings based on availability or priority. This added flexibility ensures your team can efficiently manage bookings, aligning them with your unique workflow.
The new features and updates listed above are only the tip of the iceberg. At Sessions, we're committed to providing you with the best virtual meeting and webinar experience possible. That's why we've introduced some noteworthy additional updates that are sure to take your Sessions experience to the next level.
Integration with Pabbly
To streamline your workflow and automate processes, we've integrated Sessions with Pabbly. This collaboration allows you to connect Sessions with your favorite apps and tools, creating a more efficient and automated workflow for your meetings and webinars. It's an exciting addition that opens up endless possibilities for customization and enhanced functionality.
Engage in discreet conversations with fellow participants during your meetings! With our latest update, we've introduced the private chat feature, allowing you to communicate one-on-one without moderators being able to see your conversation. To start a private chat, simply search for the participant, right-click on their name, and select "Send private message." And don't worry, these private chats will only be visible to those who are part of the conversation.
Conference View Modes
We're delighted to introduce a new conference view mode: "Audience." This view mode places the current speaker front and center on the screen, surrounded by an audience bar displaying other participants. This design fosters a heightened sense of engagement and interaction during your sessions. Furthermore, we've renamed the "Speaker" mode to "Spotlight," with a fresh design focusing solely on the most active speaker. These view modes cater to diverse session dynamics and preferences, ensuring you have the perfect layout for your content.
"Fit Video to Screen" Option
Our new "Fit video to screen" option is a highly requested enhancement. This feature dynamically adjusts the video stream to fit the available screen size when no tools are active in conference mode. This provides a more seamless and immersive viewing experience, especially for presentations and webinars. It's a subtle yet impactful improvement, ensuring your sessions are visually appealing and engaging.
Remove Yourself from Session
We understand that your schedule can change, and sometimes, you may need to remove yourself from a session. With the new "Remove session" feature, you can easily do just that. Not only does this declutter your calendar, it also removes all files, chat messages, and questions you've sent during an ended session. It's a feature that adds flexibility to your Sessions experience, helping you keep your calendar organized.
These new features and updates showcase our ongoing commitment to providing a seamless, engaging, and efficient virtual meeting and webinar platform. As the digital landscape continues to evolve, we'll continue to innovate and adapt to ensure that your Sessions experience remains top-notch. These updates are just the beginning of what's in store, and we're excited to see how they'll enhance your sessions in ways both big and small. Stay tuned for more exciting developments in the future!
