"Create Episode on Demand".
"Create Episode on Demand" allows an episode to be scheduled for right now and to have the text chat room be opened immediately, without the need to pre-schedule the episode through the TalkShoe website first. On a Call Series that has "Create on Demand" enabled, this is accomplished by calling into TalkShoe on audio (telephone) with that show's "Conference ID" (or "Call ID").
This is a great feature if a host may be traveling without a computer but still wants to host an episode of their own show via the telephone without an episode pre-scheduled.
However, this will happen no matter who is calling in on audio, the host or anyone else. If "Create Episode on Demand" is enabled on the call series and a listener calls in on audio thinking that show should be live when it really isn't live, or someone accidentally calls in to the call series on audio by mistake, then the TalkShoe system will automatically schedule a new episode for right now and will immediately open the chat room for that call series. And this is the reason why episodes may appear on your call series that you didn't schedule.
However, these unscheduled episodes will not be recorded.
