It is very easy to rehearse your Event through rehearsal mode:
First, you will need to purchase the Digital Event Experience Feature within the manager portal. Once you purchase* the Virtual Live/Digital Event Streaming feature (*$500) for your event, you will have access to all Virtual Live features within the 'Items' tab in your manager portal. All live and video features will be available on the right side of the screen under the 'Items' tab under the Event.Gives Live dashboard.
When you are in the 'Items' tab, you will want to reference the 'Live dashboard' on the right-hand side of the page. There will be a toggle next to 'Rehearsal Mode' - toggle that over to on. A 'Go to Rehearsal site' will pop up underneath the toggle.
Click on 'Go to Rehearsal Site', this will open up the rehearsal site in a different tab within your browser. The event browser will read (event.gives/keyword&rehearsal=1).
The play button to start the event will pop up in place of the Event Date and Time. Click the 'Start Event' button and you will be let into your rehearsal site. When you are on the rehearsal site, your attendees will not be able to see or hear what your team is doing on the backend. Event.Gives makes it very easy to test the Virtual Event from the attendee's viewpoint.
