As Laura, Head of Customer Success, has already shared, we are happy to announce the new and improved user interface for Zapnito video panels. From the creation of your next video panel to inviting participants and sharing expertise, the best user experience has been considered at every step.

Panels started out as a way to connect community members and share expertise. In the past year, they have become crucial to facilitating online conversations and bringing together expert minds. This is why we’ve been hard at work improving the user experience.

We are always looking to remove friction in our platform. With its new design and improved technology, we know you’re going to love hosting and participating in your panels.

What’s changed?

Once into the panel, directly invite other community users to join or share the link externally. No more copying the link and sending out to participants.

Screen sharing still allows participants to present and collaborate efficiently. Notice the new participant count and the option to enter full screen for a more focused discussion. When there’s more than 6 individuals on the panel, only the last six speakers will see their video. This is to maintain streaming quality within the browser.

Once finished, sharing your panel either to your entire community or into a specific room is only a few clicks away. Open the conversation up to as many or as few within the community as you’d like by publishing it openly or just to a specific room. This, in turn, drives the discussion forward long after the initial panel.

We’re so excited to see how you’ll take advantage of the new and improved video panels feature. Connecting experts and sharing their insight and ideas is at the heart of our raison d'être. By making it as easy and enjoyable as possible to create a panel and host live conversation, expertise will become more accessible for your members, driving continued value for the community.

As always we appreciate any and all feedback you might have about this new experience so please don't be shy in letting us know what you think.
