Collaborate Ultra update – how to run large scale sessions with more than 250 participants in Collaborate Ultra.

Collaborate Ultra has a limit of 250 attendees. Staff can increase this limit to 500 attendees by following these simple steps:

How to set up a large scale session:

1) Create the session as you normally would.

2) Click on the cog to enter the session settings menu.
3) Scroll down until the bottom of the page, where you will see the ‘Large scale session 250+’ option. Tick the box to enable 250+ attendees.

Please note: If a live session has more than 250 attendees in it, the option of breakout groups is unavailable.

For events larger than 500 attendees, Information Services recommends scheduling a Teams Live Event.
