Give each of your speakers their own page, with a photo, company/position, bio, and links to their website.
If you prefer to call your speakers something else like “presenters” or “teachers,” you can rename them. Go to Speakers, click the add button and click “Rename.”
Their bio and schedule of sessions will display on their profile page:
You can also add speakers one at a time while adding sessions:
Add many speakers at once using the directory spreadsheet in Excel. We recommend importing your speakers and managing ongoing changes through your control panel.
You can export and re-import at any time. Some organizers choose to make changes in the spreadsheet and re-import. This will overwrite any changes made in the control panel, so ensure your team sticks to one strategy.
Tips for Using the Directory Spreadsheet:
View the API documentation here and get your event’s API key on Speakers => click the exports icon => API. Create new speakers for your event using the User:Add API method.
Speaker’s email address. This is never visible to attendees. It’s only used when sending out invites and notifications that you choose to send. If the speaker has used Sched at another event, it will fill in the other fields after adding/importing.
You can pre-assign an account password. Though, we do recommending using our email invites to let them choose their own password. If they have logged into Sched before, it’s not possible to overwrite their password.
Company the speaker works at.
Position the speaker holds in the company.
If your speakers are from all over the globe, including their location is a great way to highlight that your event is international.
Short biography to pique your attendees’ interest. This is a great place to include why the speaker’s qualified to speak on this topic.
Link to their company or personal site.
Headshot of your speaker. If you have one hosted on a server, you can include a direct link in the directory spreadsheet. You can also upload a photo in your control panel after you’ve imported.
