Benefits of using LinkedIn Scheduled Live

The link to the event can be shared with your audience in advance.
You can manually invite your LinkedIn audience through the event on LinkedIn.
Your audience would be able to add the event to their calendar from the LinkedIn page or select the option that they will be attending.
Technical details of the LinkedIn Scheduled Live:
The Scheduled Live time is displayed in your local timezone.
The date, time, thumbnail, title and descriptions cannot be updated or changed after you create the event.
You can start the event 15 minutes before or 2 hours after its scheduled time.
If you “miss” your window (15 min before, 2 hr after) to go live, the post will update to say “event cancelled” and no notifications will be sent out.
