To provide more information to your audience on the Agenda, you can show speakers involved in each session.

To do that, you will first create a Speaker Profile for each speaker. Then, add the Speaker Profiles to the selected sessions. Unsure of what Speaker Profiles are?

You can add Speakers to Q&A, Poll, and Regular sessions.

How to create Speakers Profiles

  1. In your Pigeonhole, go to the Speakers page.

  2. Click "Add speaker".

  3. Fill in your Speaker's details. You may also choose to change the profile picture of your speaker. 

  4. To save, click "Add speaker".

Now that you have created Speaker Profiles for all your speakers, the next step is to add them to the sessions that they are speaking in. 

You can always edit the Speaker Profiles from the Speakers page.

How to add Speakers to a session

  1. While setting up your session at the Agenda Page, look under session information.

  2. At Speakers, click on "Add moderator" or "Add speaker", depending the role of the speaker you want to add.

  3. Select the speaker(s) you want added to the role in this session, and click save.

You have now added Speaker(s) to your session. They can be seen on the Audience Web App, under the session that you have added them to.

Pro tip

You can also add new Speaker Profiles directly from where you are setting up your session, by clicking on:

"Add speaker" or "Add moderator" > "Add new speaker"

However, this method does not allow you to add a profile picture - you should go to the Speakers page to do that.

 


 
What information can I put in Speaker Profiles?

A speaker name can consist of both a name prefix, followed by the full name. The name prefix is optional, but will be displayed alongside the full name across the Audience Web App if selected.
