What kind of support does Network for Good provide for the livestreaming component of our event?
For an event involving a livestreaming component, Network for Good will have a Solutions Team agent on-call for any questions you may have regarding your Essential Events page. The agent will be available for the duration of the event, and can be reached by any of our standard support channels, even after standard business hours.
This agent will also have sent an email to whomever created the event (or the contact person for the event) in the weeks prior to the event. They should have also called your organization a few days prior to the event date, to ensure you did not have any additional questions.
If you haven't received an email or phone call from a designated Solutions Team agents in regards to your event, please feel free to reach out at email@example.com so we can connect you with that indvidual directly.
NOTE: Solutions Team agents are experts in the Network for Good platform and will be able to assist with troubleshooting issues, such as “my participants aren’t able to donate,” or “I need help flipping my page from ‘Pre-Event’ to ‘Live.’”
For questions specific to the livestreaming functionality, it may be best in some cases to reach out directly to YouTube or Vimeo support, as they are the best-equipped to troubleshoot livestreaming issues, such as “why is my camera not streaming my video correctly,” or “why am I receiving this error when I try to turn on my livestream?”
