When you click Next at the bottom of the page, a new page in the setup process called Livestream will be added. You will see this in the timeline at the top of the page. This is where you will set up the specifics of your live stream event.
How do I set the date and time of my livestream?
Setting the start date and time of your livestream is simple. At the top of the page, you will see the box below. Enter the desired date, start and end time of your Livestream.
The date and time that you enter during setup can be edited and won’t prevent your running a livestream before or after this time.
The information you enter here will be posted on the countdown timer on your fundraiser page to inform people when your virtual event will occur.
