Setting Up an Event Stream


Facebook has removed event scheduling from their platform as of December 13th, 2021; as a result, we are removing Facebook scheduling from our interface.  Facebook Streams will be posted and created when they are scheduled to start, instead of in advance of the event.

Scheduling an Event Stream (One-Time Event)

To schedule an event stream:

  1. On the Streams tab in the Featured Streams panel (default), click the  Schedule an Event Stream button . The event scheduling dialog opens.


  2. Select the location associated with the stream.

    • Video Preset (for help customizing presets, see Creating Custom Presets)
    • Device Input
    • Backup Encoder
    • Save as Cloud Media
  5. Enter a name for the event and, optionally, add a description, call to action and poster image.

  6. (Optional) Select the primary speaker for the event.

  7. Set the event date, start time, duration and time zone.
