How can I create an event on STREAMBOXY?

In your tenant, in the STREAMBOXYBackstage, you can create an event yourself with just a few clicks by clicking on the button "+ Add" in the upper right corner of the screen under "My Events".

All events created so far are displayed in a list under "My Events".

Add event

A window opens with the "General Event Settings" where you can configure your event. Only after you have made some obligatory general settings can you create and save the event and make further individual settings.

Give your event a title. This will be used in the event, in the URL and in the associated email notifications.



Provide further details about your event. Participants can read these during the event. You can write up to 500 characters here.


Start and end

Select the start and end time and thus the duration of your event. The event can also last for several days, in which case please also adjust the end date.

Previously, the date and time when you clicked on "+Add" and created the event is shown in the start field. 

If you want to change the date and time, either write the dates directly in the field or click on the calendar symbol. 

Start and end

This opens a calendar (months, year) and a tool to set the time. Here you can either enter your desired hours and minutes manually or use the up or down arrows to adjust the time in an hourly (for hours) or 15-minute (for minutes) step. 

To save the settings in the field, click on the "OK" button. 

You can do the same for the end field.


Please note that (subsequent) changes to the event duration may have an impact on the subsequent agenda. Please check both for consistency at the end.

Event timezone

The displayed time zone can be shown as the organizer's local timezone or the event timezone, which can be selected in the dropdown.

The event timezone affects the mailing and the event time displayed in the stage and the time of the agenda items.

Use the arrow button to select your desired time zone.

External ID

This field is optional. Here you can enter IDs from other systems such as shops, etc. for the assignment. This field can also be used via the interface.

In this field you decide whether the created event should be a "Test event" or a "Paid event". You can test your event with up to 5 participants free of charge ("test event").


Further details on the prices for a "Paid event" can be found either on the STREAMBOXY website or in your individual offer.

Please note that an event marked as productive can no longer be changed in these settings.

In addition, you can only save the event if you have made a selection under "Billing type". 

Otherwise the following warning message appears:

Here you can configure some general settings for before the event.


Technical check before the event

If you want to have a technical check before the event for the participants, tick the corresponding box.

You can find more detailed information on the technology check here.

Allow multiple connections

If this setting is set, participants may take part in the event simultaneously via several devices. If the check mark is not set, the old connection will be disconnected each time a new connection is made.

You can find more detailed information on multiple connections here.

One-time password required

If you tick this box, participants will need a one-time password, which will be sent to them by e-mail. 

You can find more detailed information on the one-time password here.

Event password

If you want an event password, define one in the corresponding field and communicate it to your participants via individual channels (internal communication, e-mail, letter, etc.). There are no restrictions on the length and form of the password.

Usage data

Under the item "Usage data" you can anonymize the usage data by setting a check mark. This means that the tracking of usage data such as Q&A answers, survey results and participant attendance is deactivated. 

Initially, tracking of usage data is activated - the tick must be actively set for anonymization.
