Topic: Alternative time display for sessions periods  (Read 2163 times)

We are hosting a virtual conference and we do not want to show session times in the conference agenda.
However, we still need different time periods to structure the agenda.

How can we realize this with ConfTool Pro?

(A German version of this article is available.)

If you don’t want to show specific session times in the conference agenda, you can define an alternative time display for each session period according to your needs.

Please go to:
Overview => Scheduling => Time Periods for Sessions
Then activate the expert settings by clicking on "Expert settings disabled" or on the cogwheel icon on the bottom of the page.

Now, please edit an existing time period or create a new period and define date and time as usual. Please use the field “Alternative Time Display” to enter an alternative title for the time of the selected session period (see image 1). It will be shown in the conference agenda instead of the specific time. Please note: Dates will still be shown, just the times will be replaced (see image 2 and 3).

Finally click on the button "Save Session Times" to submit your settings.

If you want to inform participants for each session/presentation where to find the online resources, live streams, chat rooms or virtual meetings, then take a look at this forum entry:
