In Konf, we refer to each talk or a portion of an event as a session. We offer five types of sessions:
Regular session: For one lead speaker/moderator and up to 11 additional users on stage, and an unlimited number of viewers. The lead speaker/moderator starts the session and controls session recording.
Stage session: For a main stage live stream from a third party content provider (from OBS or similar).
External session: External sessions simply link to an external URL entered below. Konf video and chat is not enabled for the session.
Player session: A Player session lets you embed an external video source on the Konf platform. Sources can include video or live streams. We support YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitch, and many other video providers - for full details see this help article.
Q&A and Chat is not enabled for Player sessions.
Text session: Text sessions can be used to schedule breaks, lunches, networking, etc.. Nobody can join these sessions, as they're meant to be added for organization purposes.
In this article, we are going to walk you through how to create a Regular session. If you want to create a stage session - click here!
Create a Regular session:
From the navigation bar on the left of the screen, select Sessions, then click on Add Session.
Give your session a name, description, and choose your session type- Regular in this case.
What you'll need to do next is:
Add your lead speaker/moderator
Add additional speakers
Add sponsors (Remember to create a sponsor beforehand)
Set the start time of your session
Specify the session duration
Set the session date
You can also make your session accessible for people with VIP tickets, Standard tickets, or both by checking the blue boxes next to "Accessible for Ticket Levels" option. (You can know more about ticket levels here).
In addition, you can control who goes on stage by choosing "Must request access" from the dropdown menu next to "Are attendees allowed on stage?".
Click here to know more about how this feature works.
*Remember: your speakers must sign up for your event first before you can add them as speakers.
Next, add a special tag to filter your session along with a custom and cover images to make your session stand out!
Finally, hit that save button, and the new session will appear in the sessions agenda. 🎉 🎊
This is what your session should look like! Pretty neat, right? 🤩
