The session belongs to a specific track that is associated with an AttendeeLink invitation.
The session is pre-registered to an attendee in the AttendeeLink invitation.
- Once saved, view your newly created session on the event page
- Not seeing your Session Tab on the Event Page? Do a hard refresh and then try again.
If you would like to bring a few featured sessions to the top of the page, then our featured session feature is just what you need!
- Navigate to the session page layout through the object manager
- Add the
Feature Sessioncheckbox field to the page layout
- If end-users need access to this and they aren't associated to a managed Blackthorn Events permission set, please add this field to their profile/custom permission set.
If you would like to feature sessions at the top of the Session tab in a carousel format, check the
Featured Session checkbox field.
- If you add multiple featured sessions, they will scroll through the featured session box every 10 seconds.
- Example: There are 3 featured sessions added to this event. There are 2 non-featured sessions. The
