The link based process is designed to make it easy for the contributors to get to work: Speakers receive an email 'Your session on {event name}', click on the button [Edit] in the email and will see the forms shown below. It contains the speaker profile form and one form for each session.

Prerequisites

  • Email template Set up the Speaker Form Invitation Template at Admin > Email Templates > Templates
  • Email footer Set up the email footer with your organization data under Admin > Email templates > Settings
  • Speaker contacts Enter the speakers in their sessions

Tip: To see a preview of the email, click on the button [Show preview] at the bottom of the email template. You can even send a sample email to yourself.

Sending out the emails

To send out the speaker and session email open a speaker profile and click on the button [Send emails ⋮] and then on Send form email.
