How do I configure the main session settings?

A window with various setting options will then open.
General main session settings
The time setting options (start and end time), which can be assigned in the main session settings, are not displayed in the stage. Thus, these can be assigned, but do not have to be.
As default setting the title of the main session is named "Lobby". This can be changed in the title bar, but the set title will only be displayed if sessions and/or an agenda has been set.
Furthermore, an additional description can be added to the main session.
You have the external ID from other systems like stores etc.. In the External ID line you can enter it in this field for the assignment. The field can also be used via the API interface.
First decide which session type your main session/lobby should have.
You can currently choose between three types.

The following setting options are identical for any selected session type.
If you tick the box, the list of participants is visible to participants in the stage. Otherwise, the participants are only visible to presenters.
