Agenda Management

Agenda Management

The agenda is where you place all the activities that you will have at your event. All activities must be between the start and end set date. The number of activities is unlimited and allows you to enter a brief description of each of the activities while also adding speakers, sponsors and unique materials. It is not mandatory, and if your event does not have a schedule, you can disable this feature from the application.

Step by Step

Add an Activity

How to add an activity one at a time?

A: To add one activity at a time, Click on "Agenda" > "Activities" > "Add Activity". Then add the "Activity title", and "Activity date and time" then click on "Create".

How to use the import spreadsheet

A: The import worksheet allows you to upload to the platform all the activities of the agenda at once. The worksheet collects all the information such as the name of the activity, description, location, start and ends time, and the number of people allowed to register for each activity. It is possible to download the default spreadsheet, : "Agenda" > "Activities" > "Edit" > "Import" > "Download Demo File".

I am unable to upload the activity spreadsheet. What should I do?

A: There can be many reasons why this is happening:

1. An activity time is scheduled in a different time interval as stated in the calendar time.

2. The first row (header and description) was deleted by mistake.

3. All the mandatory fields should be completed, and possibly one of the field was left in blank (such as: dates, activity date).

Errors when uploading spreadsheets:

I added the location of a determined activity, but after uploading the spreadsheet, the location did not appear in the agenda. How do I setup the location of each activity?

A: Before importing your spreadsheet, it is important to have set the correct location of each activity under: "Agenda > Places. After this step click on "Agenda" > "Activities" > Select the activity >"Location".

Note: In the Excel Spreadsheet, this field is populated in the Location column.
  • Number of vacancies:maximum number of registrations allowed.
  • Automatic Enrollment:Every participant of your event will automatically be enrolled in activities where this feature is active.
  • Highlighted position:when enabled, allows your activities to be seen more clearly in the event agenda.
  • Visible to audience: Thismeans that this activity can be seen by everyone who is using the app.If you want only administrators to be aware of a certain activity, you should leave the option unchecked.
