Presenters can be managed from the Manage Presenters page but for events with multiple sessions, creating the sessions and assigning presenters in bulk could save valuable time. 

Within your spreadsheet (either the session import or the session details update spreadsheet), you will see a Presenters column.


You can populate these cells with comma-separated lists of presenters.


The order of presenters in the comma-separated list will be maintained after the presenters are imported.

After uploading this spreadsheet, the backend of Conferences i/o processes your lists of presenters. The application tries to match each name to a presenter you've previously added. If no matching presenter is found, a new presenter is created. For this reason, consistency in naming is important ("Dr. Tom Jones" will be considered different from "Doctor Tom Jones"). 

To confirm the presenters have been added, see presenters listed under session names on the Manage Sessions page.


The Manage Presenters page should also include that the presenters were added.


Considerations using the session update tool

The above screenshots show the session import tool. Our session update tool works similarly.

After downloading a spreadsheet with details of your existing sessions, you will see any assigned presenters listed appropriately.


From here, you can add new presenters to sessions, un-assign presenters from sessions, and reorder presenters within a session. The only thing this tool will not do is completely remove a presenter from your Conferences i/o app. (Removal can only be accomplished from the "Manage Presenters" page on your administrative dashboard.)
