Topic: Do users have to stay connected to the internet while using ConfTool?  (Read 25714 times)

Participants from developing countries often struggle with poor internet connections.
Mobile users sometimes lose the internet connection while accessing the internet.

How does this affect working with ConfTool?

The computer can be disconnected any time and work can be continued later. So there is no steady connection required.


The session time is set to (at least) 5 hours, so the user has at least 5 hours he can stay "offline" before he has to re-connect to the internet and access ConfTool before he is logged out.


When uploading of submissions becomes a problem we recommend to send the files by e-mail to the conference organizers. They can always perform the upload for the authors.

With the mobile application Conference4me the conference agenda also will be available offline on your mobile device. About Conference4me you find more information here: http://www.conftool.net/en/configuration_documentation/conferenc4me.html
