LINKING INDIVIDUAL SPEAKERS
You can link your speakers and sessions through the Agenda module.
Step 1: From the Agenda module, click Edit to the right of the relevant session.
Step 2: Scroll to the bottom and enter the speaker’s name in the Select Speakers field.
Step 3: Click on the speaker from the list that appears as you type.
Step 4: Click Save at the bottom.
LINKING ALL YOUR SPEAKERS WITH EXCEL
You can also link speakers to sessions using Excel. You will need your Speakers and Agenda Details templates.
Step 1: Navigate to the Speakers module and click Export to download the Speakers template. Note the ID column. If you have not yet added your speakers, you can fill out the Speakers spreadsheet at this point.
Step 2: Navigate to the Agenda module and click Export > Agenda to download the Agenda Details template. (If you have renamed your Agenda module, the link to the template will reflect the new name of the module.) Note the Speakers column.
Step 3: For each session in which a speaker is presenting, take relevant speakers' IDs from the ID column in the Speakers template and input them in the Speakers column of the Agenda Details template, separating IDs with commas if there is more than one speaker to link (i.e. 1,2,3,4, etc.). Remember to save your spreadsheet when you're finished!
Step 4: Click Import > Agenda Details > Choose Files and choose the Excel file you've just been working on. When you're finished, a green box should appear advising you of how many records were updated.
