Event Notifications

Event notification can be used to send announcement about your upcoming stream on Facebook (Pages, Groups, Profiles) and YouTube Channels.

Stream should be scheduled to go live after at least 15 minutes from your current time.

By default no announcement is made prior to going live.

Event notification can be set from 15 min to 6 days prior to going live.


Example

If your current time is 12 Oct 11:00 and you schedule a video to go live at 13 Oct 15:00 and event notification is set to 2 hours, then at 13 Oct 13:00 (2 hours before going live) an announcement is sent to your social account.

The announcement lets your friends/followers on Facebook or YouTube know that you plan to go live at 15:00.
