How to Add a Session to the Schedule

 

Yes, this can be confusing, but it IS do-able -- and yes, by you!

 

  • First, find the 'free' time slot you want to present in.
  • Then look at the sessions NEAR the spot you're getting ready to fill.
  • Then, click 'Edit Page'
  • Scroll down and you'll see the schedule. It's in table form, which means lots of vertical lines: | . Don't get too freaked out.
  • Find the session and the time slot.
  • Find which room you want by counting lines over from the first room.
  • Add your session to the schedule
  • This part cannot be over-stated: PREVIEW to make sure it's in the right place; change if needed
  • Save, and voila! You're a session leader!

If you need help, please email us.
