A deep dive on the Schedule section

Written by Chris Deardorff

Welcome to the Schedule section deep dive. Here you can create your schedule and invite others to be hosts to individual sessions.

Note: If you plan to use the Main Stage without any other sessions, do not input anything into the schedule.

As you are creating your schedule, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • You can have multiple sessions at the same time, just like a large physical conference. You can use Tags to separate sessions by topic.

  • Every session created also generates a corresponding chat channel with the session name. Attendees will automatically enter the corresponding chat channel upon entering the session.

  • Anyone you invite to host a particular session will be able to access sessions before the start time, but only the session they have host permissions in.

  • If you want to have a dry run with your hosts, we suggest making your Main Stage a Live Panel temporarily so that you and your hosts can all meet in the same place.

  • If you have a multi-day schedule, each day will be separated within the schedule panel inside the session.

Session Configuration

To create your first session, click the Add Session + button.

Let's begin filling out your session information. Take a look at the screenshots below to see how the information you fill out here corresponds to the Schedule panel inside the app.

Lastly, let's decide what kind of session you want this to be. If you've read our Main Stage deep dive, you will be familiar with many of the options:

Video Room

Simple video chat room. Everyone starts with cameras and microphones on, no recording is possible

Live Panel

Broadcast one or multiple speakers to a smaller audience. Only speakers start with cameras and microphones enabled, but audience members can enable theirs to ask questions.

Live Stream

Broadcast one or multiple speakers to an unlimited audience. Only speakers have cameras and microphones enabled. Audience members simply view and submit questions via chat.

Video File

Upload a pre-recorded video file.

RTMP Stream

Use your own streaming software (e.g. OBS) to broadcast any live or pre-recorded video streams.

Select your choice from the Session Type dropdown and click Save Changes.

Now that we have created our first session, you can continue to build out your schedule. Let's also look at how complex schedules can get and what that looks like for your attendees.

The displayed picture is part of a series of weekly videos that showcase multiple sessions happening simultaneously.

And here is how it looks to your attendees:

That's it for this deep dive! When you have created all your sessions, click Chat in the sidebar to move on to the next section.
