The create-a-copy feature provides account administrators the option to clone webinars and templates. The Create a Copy option (located on the Events page) will clone an entire webinar and can be used to re-broadcast a previous webinar at a future date or copy a webinar template to provide a consistent starting place for all of your events.
Creating a Copy
Pro Tip: We recommend creating an event template - set up a new webcast with all of your branding, registration settings, emails, engagement tools, etc., and title it Template to help save time when creating future events.
We do not recommend copying a previously run webinar UNLESS you want to broadcast the same event at a future date. Only copy events that you plan on running the exact same way again at a later date and time.
When you copy a webinar that has already run, the system will create duplicates of slides every time you upload a new slide deck. There is no way to prevent this from happening.
Duplicate slides can be hidden in Elite Studio. Find more information on using the Storyboard Organizer here.
After you copy the webinar, be sure to update the title, date and time, present type, and any other design choices (e.g., promo summaries on the registration and lobby page, email messaging, speaker bios, resource list, etc.) as necessary.
Note: Breakout Rooms will not carry over when copying an event.
When creating a copy of a webinar with media (audio/video), you will be alerted the media will be copied to the new event.
What Gets Copied?
When creating a copy of a webcast, all design choices, media, and set up items will be copied, thereby saving you significant setup time. Below is a list of the assets that will carry over when copying a webinar.
- Presentation audio/video
- Slides & video clips, including the Storyboard layout
- Audience console design and engagement tool configurations
- Registration and Lobby page
- Messaging and branding within the ON24 email notifications (if applicable)
- Poll questions and URLs
- Archive Available option
Note: If copying a test event this option will still have to be toggled on.
Once the copy is created, update the event title, start time, present type, and any other design choices (e.g., promo summaries on the registration and lobby page, email messaging, speaker bios, resources, etc.) as necessary.
Note: When copying an event, "Chrome on Hover" will be automatically selected for all tools on the audience console, no matter the original setting. This option can be turned off in the account dashboard. See the Webcast Elite | Account Dashboard page and Webcast Elite | Audience Console - Console Customization page for more information.
Copying Events Across Subaccounts
For accounts with subaccounts (or workspaces), you can copy or create new events between the main and sub-accounts.
When clicking the Create a Copy or Create New buttons from the Events page, a Create In dropdown will allow the user to choose the account to copy to (the default will be the current account). Selecting a different account from the dropdown will copy the webinar to that account.
