Privacy Controls

This guide will help you decide which privacy controls will work best for your event. You will find them on the Settings tab.

Public Event with Open Signup
By default, attendees can create their own account.

Public Event with Invite-Only Login
If you want to manually invite each person and prevent attendees from creating their own accounts, set your event to “Public event with invite-only login.”

If you’re using Eventbrite for registration, you should also check this box to prevent attendees without tickets from logging in.

Private Event with Invite-Only Login
By default, your schedule and directory are visible online and to search engines. You can even see public events under Upcoming Events in the Sched Event Directory. If you want only specific people you invite to view the schedule and details, check the box “Private event with invite-only login.”


Private Event with Password Wall
You can require a password to view your Sched site. This will protect your Sched site so it will only be accessible by new people that have the password. People will be prompted to enter the password to unlock your Sched site:
Password Protected

Show Uploaded Files to Logged-in Attendees Only
Sched includes unlimited file hosting to add files to sessions. To make the links to these files visible to logged-in users only, go to Settings => Content.

If a logged-in user copies the direct link ( to the file, the link is visible to anyone.
Session File Visibility

Show Attendee Directory
Your public site’s menu includes an attendees tab. To remove it from your menu, turn off the toggle on Settings =>  Content.
Attendee Directory Disabled

Show Attendance Lists for Each Session
Attendees who have added a session to their schedule will be listed at the bottom of each session page. To hide your attendees listed with each session, turn off the toggle on Settings => Content.

We recommend leaving this on since individual attendees can make their profiles private.
Disable Session Attendance

Show Most Popular Session Page
Participants can click “Popular” in the sidebar to browse sessions sorted by the number of signups.

To disable the page, turn off the toggle on Settings => Content.
