General Changes

Overall changes to the platform make WebinarNinja 6 even easier — and more powerful.

Farewell, Dashboard. Once you log in, you’ll be taken immediately to your My Webinars page. Since that’s where most users go immediately after logging in, we figured we’d save you a click by skipping the Dashboard altogether.

New Media Library. Keep all your images, video files, slides, and handouts, in one convenient, searchable place, hosted by WebinarNinja. Find and retrieve whatever you need, whenever you need it, right from the app — including webinar recordings.

Co-Hosts are now Presenters. Designate a Presenter when creating a webinar and they will automatically be featured on your Registration page. Presenters can speak on camera and share their screen.

Attendee Presenters. As Host, you can designate any live webinar attendee as a Presenter during the webinar, instantly allowing them to speak on camera and share their screen with the rest of the audience.

More Presenters. Previously, all WebinarNinja plans allowed a maximum of 3 Co-Hosts. Currently, Presenter limits are as follows:

  • Pro Plan: 4 Additional Presenters

  • Business Plan: 10 Additional Presenters

Longer duration limits. Formerly, webinar durations and recordings for all plans were limited to 2 hours. Currently, maximum webinar durations are as follows:

  • Pro Plan: 4 hours

  • Business Plan: 8 hours

Mobile hosting. You can now host webinars from mobile devices. However, you cannot share your screen from it.

Improved mobile experience for attendees. An updated layout and design improves viewing and enables easier transition between the webinar stream and Chat area.

Upgraded streaming quality. For an even more crisp, high-definition experience.


Studio Changes

The Webinar Studio is completely redesigned for a smoother, more intuitive Host and Attendee experience.

Signal strength indicator. Hosts can now monitor their connection in the studio.

A/V testing. Test your audio and visual bitrates from the Studio settings window.

Upload videos for a live webinar. In addition to YouTube videos, you can now play videos from your Media Library or your own computer.

Questions, Polls, and Offers have moved. You can toggle between the Questions, Polls, Offers, Handouts, and overall Chat tabs, all of which are located on the right side of the page.

Upvote Questions. Attendees can upvote each other’s Questions in the dedicated Questions area, highlighting the most relevant or popular. Hosts can view Questions in chronological order, or in order of upvotes. This feature can be disabled in Studio settings.

Pin chat messages. You can now pin important chat comments, so they’re not lost in the main chat area.

Private messaging. Attendees can chat privately with Hosts and Presenters via the Chat window. This feature can be disabled for attendees in Studio settings.

Attendees can present! You can allow Attendees to request your permission to become a Presenter. Grant and revoke Presenter permissions at any time during a webinar, switching from one Presenter to another on the fly.

Timed polls. Formerly, Polls were visible to attendees throughout a webinar. Now, you can set specific times for Polls to appear.

Offer images. You can now customize in-webinar sales Offers with images.

Provide Handouts. It’s now possible to provide downloadable files, like PDF and Word documents, to your attendees during the webinar.

Slide preview. From the Host’s view, slide presentations will display such that the Host can view past and upcoming slides, in addition to the slide currently visible to the audience.

Hotkeys for presenting slides. You can now use the SPACEBAR or ARROW keys on your keyboard to move through your slide presentation during a webinar.

New layout option. You can now split the screen between your camera feed and slide presentation vertically.

Studio settings. More Studio settings are included in one place.


Statistics Changes

All WebinarNinja plans now include more detailed metrics, so Hosts can more accurately measure performance.

New look and layout. The Statistics Page now looks like this:

Comprehensive statistics. You can now view statistics for all webinars, or all webinars of the same type, in a single snapshot of your overall webinar performance.

Registration Page visits. Track your traffic by viewing how many unique visitors came to each webinar’s registration page.

Engagement and Conversion graphs. Get a clear snapshot of how engaged your audience is, with graphic representations of overall clicks and other attendee activity.

Attendee-specific duration metrics. See how long each attendee stayed after joining your webinar.

Replay viewers. See which attendees watched your webinar replay, if you made one available.

Attendee-specific Chat metrics. See which attendees participated in the Chat for each webinar.

Attendee-specific Offer metrics. See which attendees clicked on your offer, broken down separately for live and replay attendees.

Handout metrics. See which attendees downloaded your downloadable Handouts, if applicable.

See for yourself! Get started, and don’t hesitate to reach out to Support with any questions. We’re confident you’ll love the new WebinarNinja.
