Choosing a Session Layout

Before you can add any sessions to an event, you need to have configured the Session Layout – how the admin-side Sessions page will look when you add or edit sessions.

You can do this in either of two ways:

  1. If you navigate to the Sessions page before a planner has configured the session layout on Setup > Session Layout, you see a friendly walkthrough which helps you do so right there.

  2. Alternatively, go to Setup > Session Layout, select your layout option, and configure it.

You can use the default layout as it comes "out of the box", or you can configure it, by adding/deleting/moving standard fields, custom fields, and section breaks.

The choice made, and the configuration based on it, determines what you see and edit when adding and editing sessions.

There may be one or two choices of layout available

  1. The Standard Sessions option is always available.

  2. A Conference Sessions option is also available if the Conference Sessions sub-module of the Speaker and Session Management module is enabled for the event, on Plan > Configure > Options > "Functional Areas Needed by This Event".
