What widgets are available for Lobby Experience?

With Lobby Experience, each pre and post-webcast Lobby is fully-responsive and powered by individual widgets that populate everything from the Webcast Title at the top to the Social Media Footer at the bottom, and all of the content and controls in between.

Lobby widgets are arranged on the page in rows. There is no limit to the number of rows that can be created, and there can be either one or two widgets per row.

The pre-webcast Lobby and post-webcast Lobby are completely independent of each other and can contain different widgets within each. Any design elements (logo, background) and settings for a widget that appears in both locations will need to be applied separately to each. Please refer to the 'availability' column below for which location each widget can be used.

Please see the Lobby Experience Informational Guide for instructions on editing, adding, or deleting each of the different widgets within the Pre or Post Lobby locations.
