Join as panelist

Hello!

Is it possible to a panelist join a webinar via Web SDK?

I was trying to transform an attendee (who was accessing the meeting via web) in a panelist. When I set him as panelist, his webpage reloads and he needs to reenter the meeting. After he connects, he’s still an attendee.

At “My webinars”, I can see his name and e-mail listed as panelist.

Is there any other info I need to pass to the SDK to connect him as panelist?

Thanks!

Hi @ricardo.brunoro,

Right now it is not possible to join as a Panelist with the WebSDK. We are working on this feature for our next release. You can checkout our upcoming changes page & change log page for when we release the features.

Hi, can the user join as a panelist if he is invited as a panelist via web sdk? Also, is this feature going to be released in April stil?

Hi @mlingwood,

The webSDK doesn’t support panelist at this time. Right now due to the enhancement freeze we will most likely delay the April release. We have not timetable as of right now, however, you can subscribe to your change log to receive notifications of any new changes[1].
