Your schedule menu options

Within your event's administrative site menu configuration (under Event Setup > Menu), you will have the options to enable the below schedule sub-menu views.

Note: Full Schedule and My Schedule may be renamed (under Event Setup > Menu) to anything of your liking within your event menu, such as Registration, Breakouts, Conference Schedule. You are also able to limit the visibility of these session menu items to certain people and/or group(s)!

What do these do?

Full Schedule

If you have sessions that you want your attendees to register for, this is the feature for you!

When enabled in your event menu and within the session option, this is where a list of all your built sessions with "Display in Full Schedule" enabled would live for your audience. Within this Full Schedule list, your attendees will be able to register/add sessions to their "My Schedule" and join the session when the time comes! The schedule items are sorted in date/time order by default. In this schedule view, your attendees may:

  • Search for a session

  • Refine by Date, Time, Location, and Track.

  • Arrange the schedule by Chronological or Reverse Chronological order.

  • View the session description, list of speakers, and many more details by clicking on the session title!

  • Scroll through the list of all available schedule items and select which sessions they would like to attend. For an attendee to join the session, they will need to:

    • Click Add/Register (depending on your waitlist configuration - noted within the How-To section below) next to their desired session(s) for these to be added to their "My Schedule

    • Navigate to their "My Schedule" for a list of all their selected sessions. This is also where they would need to navigate to join a virtual session.

    • Note: Until the session is added to their "My Schedule," the link to join a virtual session will not be available to them.

My Schedule

Your attendees "My Schedule" is a combined list of all sessions they are assigned to or have selected to attend from the "Full Schedule." If enabled in your event menu, the items in your attendee's "My Schedule" may be:

  • Any pre-assigned sessions by the event organizer(s)

  • A list of all registered/added sessions from their "Full Schedule"

  • Any attendee requested appointments amongst each other or with companies/sponsors

The schedule items are sorted in date/time order by default. In this schedule view, your attendees may:

  • Search for a session

  • Refine by Date, Time, Speaker, Location, and Track.

  • Arrange their My Schedule by Chronological or Reverse Chronological order.

  • View the session description, list of speakers, and many more details by clicking on the session title!

  • Access the online meeting link to join a virtual session.

Featured Session Tracks

If enabled in your event menu, this will allow a quick view of all sessions within the Full Schedule under the selected track to bring better track visibility and traffic!

If this does not fit your event need and everyone's schedule is pre-assigned for them, we can do this too!

You just simply turn off Full Schedule and My Schedule from your event menu, and just use Schedule!
