This #AskSCHED session focuses on virtual and hybrid events with tips and best practices for managing speakers and attendees.
Here’s an outline with time stamps so you can skip to the parts relevant to you:
0:02 – What size does the speaker photo need to be?
0:46 – Using Sched to manage COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

4:05 – What problems and issues regularly arise during an event?
6:42 – Can you delete an event if it hasn’t gone live?

10:29 – How do I best handle speakers with titles, pronouns, long titles, or long company names without messing up the alphabetical order?
12:09 – Is there a reason why the feedback form closes automatically? It would be preferable for the end-user to determine the “close” date.

15:25 – Is there an efficient way to pre-register attendees for specific sessions?

20:29 – Additional virtual hosting and training services available through Sched.
21:19 – We hope to run a live in-person graduation on two separate days. We also plan to create a pre-recorded version of these events and create a virtual graduation including some of the clips of the in-person graduation. How do we make this clear and simple to the user?
23:40 – Is there an event-wide communication feature on the main event page? And if not, can we embed a third party app, like Yammer or Arena?
