But First: Why should you need to use Google Hangout Meets with Knorish
While Hangout Meets is a great solution for conducting online training, it is not really a full-fledged solution for automating the logistics behind running webinars or live training sessions. Knorish has those additional benefits and features that can help.
The feature of auto sending emails as a reminder is one key differentiating factor here as this helps you to just set it up once and forget about reminding people again. Plus only the users who have signed up for the session get the reminder none other.
Additionally, the email body already has your brand's name, user's name, date, and time already listed. All you have to do at the time of setup is to list the zoom link for the online session. SO imagine you have 100 participants logging in, you don't have to send 100 emails. Just set up the reminders and you are good to go.
Here's how you do it:
After you log in to your Knorish account and access the Dashboard, under courses you can create a new course and give it a name. Preferably the name of the Webinar/ Live Event.
