If your new Speaker is an existing Contact, we have included a Contact lookup field on the Speaker record. This field will pull the Contact's First Name, Last Name, and Email into the Speaker record.

  1. Add the Contact field to your Speaker page layout.
  2. When adding a new Speaker, set the Contact field instead of filling the First Name, Last Name, and Email fields.

Hide Speaker from the Event Page

If your Speaker shouldn't be publicly shown on the Event, check the Hide On Event Page field and the information will be for internal eyes only.

  • When the Hide On Event Page field is checked, the Speaker will not show up under the Speaker tab.
  • If the Speaker is related to a Session, it will not show up under the Session details.
