Prior to a virtual conference event's start date, you may choose to stop attendees from entering the event, if you are still working on building your event space, branding, and other elements, or if you'd prefer no one have access before the event starts.
If so, you can choose to disable the Enter Event button.
Note: The Enter Event button cannot be hidden for webinar events at this time.
Open your event and navigate to the Space tab. On the right side is the "Enter Event Button Enabled" toggle.
If you would prefer to disable the Enter Event button for your attendees, click the toggle. It will now say "Enter Event Button Disabled."
Now when attendees visit your event landing page prior to the event date, they will see a disabled button with a message letting them know the exact start date and time of your event (in their own local timezone).
The Enter Event button will be automatically turned on 60 minutes prior to your event start time. This is to ensure all attendees can access your event successfully.
Following your event, the button will return to the disabled state and attendees will no longer be able to enter.
NOTE: Speakers and organizers will always have full access to your event - they will always be able to see and click the "Enter Event" button.
