Creating & Assigning Speakers
Updated over a week ago

When speakers complete the submission form, a new speaker contact is created within your Sessionboard event. Event admins have the ability to add additional speakers to a submission without a submission form being completed.

Create Speaker Contact

  1. Within the Speaker module, select the orange "Add" button at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

  2. Select the "Add New Person" button in the pop-up window.

  3. Add all of the speaker's information (i.e. name, phone number, address).

    1. NOTE: First name, last name, and email are required

  4. Click "Save" once complete

NOTE: Once you have created the contact, they will need to be assigned to a session before they appear within the Speaker module. Unassigned speaker contacts live within the People module.

Attach A Speaker To A Session

  1. Once a speaker is created, navigate to the Sessions module and click the lightning bolt icon next to the session you want to add the speaker to.

    1. NOTE: An "Edit" button will appear which you would want to click.

  2. Within the pop-up window, navigate to the "Other" tab and locate the "Session Participants" box. Here you are going to want to search for the speaker's name to attach them to the session.

  3. Once complete, click the "Save Session" button at the bottom of the pop-up window.
