Selected reactions will apply to all sessions (with Reactions enabled) in the Pigeonhole. 

Reactions Insights

In the post-event insights, you will be able to see the total number of reactions sent for each session, and the breakdown for each of the reaction type (as shown below).

Note: If you have nested sessions, reactions sent during nested sessions will be calculated as a total of all the nested sessions and the parent sessions, and displayed as a single reactions insights under the parent session. 

If you have a unique video integration for each session, we recommend that you set them up as individual standalone sessions so that the reaction insights are captured for each session separately.
