Attending an Adobe Connect event is similar to attending an Adobe Connect meeting, seminar, or training session. The main difference is that attendees must register before joining an event.
Adobe Connect events require registration, though not all registrations require an approval. You can register for and join an event in the following ways:
If an event host invites you by providing your email, you receive an email containing links to the various Event Pages. Register and login using these links. If configured, you can also register and join using your Facebook or Google+ login.
To allow for simplified event registration, you can create events that do not require a password. Non-registered users can attend such events using just their email address. Users who are already registered on your Adobe Connect server, must enter their user name and password to attend an event. To enable this feature, select the Register Without Password option when creating an event. It helps non-registered, guest users log in easily by entering their email address.
If necessary, a join button can be introduced in the template of registration email confirmation message by an Event Administrator. After a user registers for an Event, they receive an email with a link to attend the Event. The link is associated with a join button. Instead of the entire personalized link the registrant sees a personalized join button. The button auto-populates the login name with the email ID when attempting to attend the Event.
If the event is listed on a public website (typically when it is open to the website visitors), you click the registration link to access the registration form. To register, provide the requisite information. You can also use your social login (Facebook or Google+), if hosts provide the option.
The option to use social profiles to register and log in is available only on hosted offering of Adobe Connect and not on the on-premise deployments.
Then, depending on the way the event was created, you may receive a notification email that provides your status (pending, approved, or denied) and a link to join the event. The link can be personalized to auto-populate the attendees login name with the email ID when attempting to attend the Event. Besides the link, the email can also contain dial-in telephone number and participant code that you use to phone in, if appropriate.
In addition, email invitation may contain a calendar invite in an iCal format. You can add it in your email client or organizers that support iCal format.
If you are an Adobe Connect user and the event was created in the same Adobe Connect account as yours, the event also appears in Adobe Connect Central. Join it from your Adobe Connect calendar. For more information, see Enter a scheduled event from Adobe Connect Central.
When participants opt-out of engagement tracking, Adobe Connect does not provide non-explicitly submitted information to Event Hosts. Engagement index and private chat message count are excluded when reporting event meeting information.
The participants can opt-out during registration. Participants can opt-out only after joining an Adobe Connect session (a Meeting, a Virtual Classroom, a Seminar, or an Event). The opt-out option is available in the in-meeting notifier, in the upper-right corner of the meeting room.
If you are an Adobe Connect user, an event is created in the same Adobe Connect account as yours, and you register for the event, the link to join the event also appears in Adobe Connect Central. To join such an event:
