Use Fuze to schedule, invite, require registration, and manage presenters for webinars that include up to 1000 participants.

Webinars have a specific creation and management workflow in Fuze that allows you to define presenters, set and manage dates, and generate and send customized email invites automatically. Additionally, you can require attendees to register and provide specific details about themselves prior to joining (e.g., company, email, name, etc.).

Create and manage webinars via the Meetings tab of the Search screen.
