Below are the steps a speaker should take to join a session, detailed steps, best practices and additional information are outlined further down.
As all speakers and moderators will be on the same moderator panel, it’s crucial to establish a few important rules for the speakers to follow. The following is what to tell your presenter for the best experience:
The name will default to the guest account email/name when they sign in. To change this there are two ways to do this which are listed below in detail. Here is what to tell your presenter to change their display name:
Method A: Double click on the speakers screen name as shown below, then type in the desired display name.
Method B: Hover over the bottom right area of the screen and three dots will appear, if you click on that it will bring up a menu. Click on the first line, which will show their gravatar name and initials. They should then enter their name as they want it displayed and their gravatar email. They can also adjust their device settings here if desired.
Here are the symbols displayed in the live control panel and what they do:
A – Keyboard Help: This symbol will display the hotkeys which can be used when presenting. You must click on this a second time to take the hotkeys down.
B – Lead View: This symbol will open the lead view in a second tab.
