Advanced settings for Sana Live sessions

To further customize your Sana Live sessions and ensure they run smoothly, you can take advantage of the advanced settings. Hereโ€™s how to access and configure these options:

Accessing advanced settings

  • In the live course editor, after clicking on Schedule session, scroll down further to locate the Advanced section and click on the drop-down arrow to access additional options.

Advanced options available:

  • Insert a participation limit:

    • Set a maximum number of participants to manage the size of your session effectively.

    • Note that the facilitator is included in this count.

  • Make content available after session:

    • This setting is always on by default

    • Activate this option if you want users to be able to access the session content after it has concluded.

    • This is useful for participants who may need to review the material again.

  • Hide from public sessions:

    • This option allows you to control the visibility of the session within your organization. It is ideal for private events such as internal meetings, private webinars, or exclusive workshops

    • The session will only be listed in the upcoming events on the homepage for users that are assigned to the session.

    • If the course is 'Available to everyone' but the session is hidden, the session will not appear in the scheduled sessions, Teamspace, or on the homepage for users who are not assigned, even though the live course itself is visible.

    • Users cannot self-enroll to hidden sessions.

  • Only Let Users Join When Session Starts:

    • Enable this setting to restrict participants from joining the session before the official start time, ensuring that everyone joins simultaneously.
