Additional Information

The Practice feature allows organizers to run an unlimited number of practice sessions before the scheduled webinar start time. All settings and customization made to a webinar, including Polling, will apply to the practice session. Because attendees cannot join a practice session, using this feature is a great way for organizers and panelists to get comfortable with the presentation flow. If a practice session runs up to the start time of the scheduled webinar, organizers can start the live webinar from Practice mode, however if you plan to use sample attendees answering questions and polls, then you should schedule a duplicate webinar for this purpose in case actual attendees arrive early.
