Team Members Permissions

Team members receive their individual login, can change or reset passwords, and have access to "projects" assigned to them. All team members have access to the live broadcast and to tasks assigned to them via the console. Team roles are explained below:

  • Broadcast Operator - The Videolinq account owner is the Operator and controls all aspects of the broadcast. They can multitask and fulfill all roles or delegate tasks to a team (Event Producer, Chat Moderator, and Presenters). Team members can be co-workers, or a client and their team.

  • Event Producer - leads the social media project and has full access to all Studio features except for video sources/and channel activation (controlled by the Operator). The Event Producer can login to social media platforms and assign them to the broadcast. This provides a secure environment when inviting a client as the Event Producer and asking them to connect Videolinq to their social media channels.

  • Chat moderator - can post replies to all combined chat audience or to viewers from a specific platform. Chat Operators select questions, and pass them to Presenters, or insert them to the live stream. Chat moderators prepare in advance titles or announcements and insert them to the stream.

  • Presenters - receive moderated questions from the audience and can answer on camera or via chat.

Studio Project Dependencies

  • The number of available social media Studio projects depends on the plan level.

  • A Studio project must have an associated channel assigned.

  • Channels with an associated Scheduler cannot be assigned to a Studio Project. Release the channel from the Scheduler and attach it to a Studio project.

  • Target destinations for a live broadcast are assigned during the project setup process. Login to destinations during channel setup, or delegate the task to the Event Producer.

  • The project must be "online" for the chat feature to work.

If you have questions about Studio start a chat conversation with our team (lower right corner of the Videolinq home page).
