Understanding Live Stream Statuses

  • Scheduled: This status will publish the Live Stream to your Mavenseed site. Enabling it to show up publicly and be searched. In this status members will be able to RSVP for the Live Stream.

  • Live: This turns off the ability to RSVP, and displays a link to your YouTube Watch URL for your members to click on and visit. Note this does not email or notify your members, instead keeping that within your control with your MailChimp account.

  • Archived: When the Live Stream is complete, grab the recorded version and upload it via the Media tab so members whom may have missed the stream may view it.
