admitting panelists and attendees to webinar


I've set up a webinar to allow a Practice Session in advance. But, Attendees logged in early and were shown as Participants/Attendees. Can I allow Panelists to automatically join the early Practice Session, and keep Attendees out until the webinar start time?

If "Practice Session" has been enabled for your Webinar, when you first start the Webinar you'll see a message top-center that says "You are in a practice session [Start Webinar]". If you do nothing here, you'll remain in Practice Session. This mode will allow Panelists to join, but will not allow attendees to join. Kinda like having the talent on stage, but the doors are still locked for everybody else.

Once you're ready to open the doors to everybody you'll then want to click on [Start Webinar].
