This is a series of three blog posts talking about our new service Vivoh Metalink.
As we wrote about earlier in this blog, Vivoh follows the Microsoft recommendation of having a custom URL to your webinar. So much so that we built a new service to make it easy to manage custom webinar URLs.
A critical best practice for webinar events is to separate the link that is sent to attendees from the webinar service URL. This enables the host to change the webinar service URL in the event of an error (technical or host human error) or a security breach. MetaLink enables hosts to change their webinar service URLs without needing to re-publish the event links.
In other words, no more re-sending multiple calendar invites when the event details change. Simply generate a single metalink URL, and send that out.
Want to switch to a different eventual webinar ID because the participant list grew beyond the license allocated for the presenter? Just edit the metalink with the new webinar URL but never bother the participants.
