Configure Permissions

Presets

A preset is a set of permissions and configurations that are applied to participants. They determine the look, feel, and behavior of a livestream participant, with options to set varied permissions, such as the ability to create polls or chat, control access for plugins, and more.

Configuration

You can define the following permissions and UI configurations:

Max number of people on screen: Set the maximum number of participants who can appear on the screen at any given time. We recommend setting this number between 6 and 9 for the best possible experience.

Max number of people screensharing: Set the maximum number of participants who can share the screen at any given time. We recommend setting this number between 3 to 4 for the best experience.
