This page will help you make sure your computer, laptop, mobile device, and internet are ready for the smoothest experience with the Attendify platform.
Update your browser.
Be sure to use the latest version of one of these recommended browsers for the best attendee experience:
Google Chrome is the preferred browser. To ensure you have the latest version of Google Chrome.... 1) Click on the Menu icon in the upper right corner of the screen. 2) Click on Help, and then About Google Chrome. 3) Your Chrome browser version number can be found here. (See screen shot.)
Download the Zoom app on your computer and mobile device.
Most sessions will be conducted on a Zoom integration within Attendify. This means you'll need to have the Zoom app downloaded onto your computer and mobile device (if you intend to use your mobile device) in order to watch live sessions. To be safe, if you don't already have one, you could also consider setting up a free personal meeting Zoom plan here: https://zoom.us/pricing.

Video streaming needs your computer/laptop to have enough processing power to run smoothly. That's why we recommend making sure your machine is ready beforehand.

We recommend running a speed test ahead of the event to check your download and upload speed. It takes only 1 minute. Follow this link to get started.
❗ If you're using a VPN or a network protected by a firewall, this may interfere with and/or block the virtual platform and individual features. For the best performance, we recommend disabling the VPN and whitelisting the URL of the virtual platform (if you are on a network protected by a firewall). If you can't add the URL to the whitelist, we recommend switching to a different network.
