How do I add panelists?

Panelists are staff members who can speak, present, share webcams, and answer assigned questions during a webinar. Unlike co-organizers, they cannot start or facilitate a session on their own.

Add a panelist before the session starts

You can add up to 49 panelists to a webinar and 200 panelists to a virtual event from the Event Details page.

  1. Sign in to your account at
  2. From the Dashboard, either schedule a new webinar or open an existing one.
  3. On the Events Details page, select + Panelists under the About section.
  4. Enter the person's name and email address.
  5. To add another panelist, click the Plus icon.
  6. When you're done, select Update. Your panelists will be added to the Event Details section, and they will receive an invitation email with a link to join the session.

Add a panelist during the session

You can add panelists during a session by promoting attendees to the panelist role. There is no limit to the number of attendees that you can promote during a session.

  1. Right-click an attendee's name in the Attendee List and select Make Panelist.
  2. When you're prompted to make them a panelist, select Yes.
  3. If you want a panelist to share their screen, you can make them a presenter.
