The Session Submission Form is the speaker's first interaction with Sessionboard. The primary function of this form is to collect information about their session as well as the potential speaker(s). Completing this form will result in creating a submission and speaker record for the admin to view within their dashboard.
How to create a submission form
Within your dashboard, select the blue "Manage Forms" button.
2. By default, Sessionboard creates the first submission form that you can edit. Hover over the submission form and select "Edit".
3. Edit the four sections that comprise the submission form: Welcome Screen, Session Information, Speaker Information, and Form Settings.
Welcome Screen - Introduction to the event. This is the first screen a user will see when they access your submission form. Event admins can create a custom welcome message with basic text box functionality.
Session Information - Collect information about the submitted session by adding a page title, page description/instructions, as well as questions to collect data.
"Title" & "Description" are two fields that are required and can not be deleted from the form.
To add a question, use the button "+ Add Question" at the bottom of the page.
You have the ability to search for existing questions or create a custom question. Standard fields are labeled "Global Fields" whereas custom fields are labeled "Event Fields". Global fields are available across all events within an organization.
Speaker Information - Collect information for the session's speaker(s) by adding a page title, page description/instructions, as well as questions to collect data.
Form Settings - The following settings can be applied to your form:
Close Date: The date and time that new submissions are no longer excepted as well as the date and time that edits can be made to existing submissions.
