This is a workaround from our team if you need someone to manage your broadcast fully or you want to join your show from mobile or just don't want to worry about managing the show while you are hosting it. You may also check out our article on the Remote Assistant feature if you only need to control the features during your broadcast from a mobile device or your assistant can do it for you.
The host and the assistant don't need to be in the same room.
First of all, it is important to point out that all Be.Live accounts are connected to personal Facebook profiles or Google accounts, so if the presenter wants the broadcast to appear on their timeline or the page or in a group on their behalf, the assistant would need to have access to that profile or Google account. Here's how:
- If the assistant has access to the host’s Facebook profile/Google account, they can log in to the host's Be.Live account and proceed with managing the broadcast on their side.
- If the assistant does not have access to the host’s account, the host would need to set everything up on the assistant's computer, log in and open the studio.
What’s next after the assistant has successfully logged into the studio?
The assistant should share the guest link with the presenter:
Once the presenter joins via this link, the assistant will see them in the Staging area first:
The assistant will be able to move the presenter from the Staging section to the Stream by clicking the "Show in Stream" in the top right corner of the camera feed:
NOTE! People in the Staging section are NOT seen or heard by the audience.
As you can see, the person who created the broadcast does not need to connect their camera at all. But they can control everything that is shown in the broadcast, including branding, text updates, media and etc.
Feel free to use the host chat (on the right side of the studio) to communicate with each other privately:
Also, we would really appreciate you taking a short survey! This will allow us to better understand your needs and come up with a better solution.
