Enhanced customization from beginning to end.
By creating a thoughtful agenda, you guide your audience through your programming, while bringing your event to life. Through Convene’s virtual agenda feature, the details are easily customizable, from session start/end times, track filtering, to the headshots and bios of each speaker. Here are some frequent questions we get from our clients as they become familiar with our Agenda Module:
- What if some of your sessions have brief descriptions while others have more detailed information?
Each individual agenda item can (but doesn’t have to) include as much information as you would like. In turn, attendees will see a short, collapsible preview, which can then be expanded by participants to reveal a lengthier description. This will create a consistent look across your sessions, while still allowing you to be as descriptive as you’d like.
- What if my agenda changes?
Things happen, and at Convene, we designed our platform to be flexible in responding to your changing needs. Perhaps one of your presenters cancelled, or some of the session material has been through last minute revisions. Rest assured; you will have several opportunities to revise the agenda before event day.
- How can I increase visibility for my event partners?
Speaker bios can showcase links to social media pages or personal websites. Additionally, the agenda items can feature links to external pages that contain relevant content for the session, for speakers, or even sponsorships.
Your agenda’s visibility depends on your preferences. This means you can choose your agenda only once an attendee is logged into the event site, which creates a layer of security for your event. Or conversely, you can choose to make the agenda public, and therefore not require any login credentials or password (by placing it on your event’s homepage). You have full control over where and when the agenda is visible and can even specify its location on the page – if you’d like it to be above the video player, or below the speaker section. The choice is yours!
- Can the audience configure their agenda on their own as well?
The Agenda Module also has an optional track-filtering feature. Attendees can select their desired track, and the agenda will show only the sessions that are associated with that track. This way, attendees can create an experience that’s tailored to their specific interests. The filter is also great for differentiating between breakout sessions and main stage sessions.
- How does the agenda guide users in joining the programming?
Each agenda item is paired with a button that lets participants know if a scheduled event is upcoming, ready to be joined, or recently completed. While buttons can be customized, they generally read: Upcoming (meaning the session has not yet started), Join Now (prompting users to begin watching an available session – whether it’s a breakout, mainstage event, or pre-recorded video), and Done (which means the session and access has come to an end for the time being).
