Are speakers an important part of your event?
Create a speaker profile
To create a profile, open the menu item "Contacts" and then click on the tab "Speakers".
You can store the speaker profiles in this menu item. If you want to contact/communicate with the speakers specifically, you have to add them with their contact information in the menu item "Contacts".
After you have clicked on the plus button in the top right hand corner, the speakers mask will open:
You can add the following information:
- Photo of the speaker (mandatory field)
- First & last name (mandatory fields)
- Title of the speaker
- Description text including the option to set hyperlinks.
To ensure that the description text is fully displayed on the event website (in layout 1), here is a guide:
- with 3 speakers maximum 595 characters
- with 4 speakers maximum 400 characters
- with 5 speakers maximum 345 characters.
If the description text is introduced with a heading, the number of characters is reduced.
- Social media profiles of the speaker: You can choose from LinkedIn, Xing, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, Vimeo, Spotify, e-mail.
- Schedule items at which the speaker participates.
- Speakers can only be added to the schedule items at this point in the back office. Adding speakers to a schedule item (menu item "Schedule") is not yet possible.
- If your event is set up in several languages, make sure that you store the above information for all languages. Use the language switcher for this purpose.
After you have saved the stored information by using the "Add" button, the newly created profile is added to the overview. All speakers are listed here.
After the speaker profiles have been created, you can set the order individually:
To do this, move the curser over one of the profiles until the = sign appears and move the speaker to a different position. The new order affects both the event website and the virtual platform.
For security reasons, some content can not be displayed in edit mode in the site builder. For example, externally embedded images are displayed as broken images and externally embedded fonts might not be displayed correctly. However, all content can be accessed and used via the preview button and the published website.
