Sessions can be added to your event in the Content section, the Sessions tab.
Once you click on the “Add Sessions” button, you will be offered several ways to add your schedule to the event - manually and by importing data.
To import a session, please download a template first. To do that, please click on the question mark. There you will find detailed instructions for filling out all the fields on the second sheet of the file. Moreover, there is a filled test database added as an example on the third sheet.
Once the csv/xlsx file is ready you can simply upload it - drag and drop in the specified window or browse the file.
Please check out a detailed guide on how the data can be imported properly to the platform.
Add Sessions Manually
When you add sessions manually, there is the required information that you need to fill in - a title, enter its date and time, add a description, choose the source of streaming, and assign stage, track, and speakers to your session.
Note: the limit of characters for the title is 300.
As for streaming sources, you can choose from the following:
PINE/RTMP You can choose this option if you want to stream directly through the PINE platform using our backstage or via RTMP. You will be able to choose the type of streaming in the backstage of the particular session from the PINE’s stage.
Please note that this option is paid ($20 per hour) and has limited streaming hours.
When choosing this source you are able to upload a link to a stream that will be broadcasted by means of 3rd party players (YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo, etc.). This link can be uploaded in the Media library and turned on in the media tab on the stage.
Note: When you choose a 3rd party player which is not YouTube, Twitch, or Vimeo we strongly recommend that you test the streaming from this player in advance. Our platform supports many players, but some of them may have features that will prevent them from being integrated into our platform.
Choose this source if you want to add a link that will lead your attendees to the external service. The link can be obtained in the 3rd-party service you use for this stream.
You can choose this type of source if there are no online sessions and you want just to add some information about the offline session.
You can also add more details to your session if you click on "More fields". There you can add: restrictions, sponsors to the "organized by" section, a custom badge, and topics.
What is a Break?
A break can be added when there are no sessions planned in the schedule. You can also link a sponsor to a break and launch media from the media tab on the stage.
What is Track?
A Track is a global topic that can logically combine several sessions on different stages.
Add tracks for the convenience of your attendees. They will be able to filter sessions by topics they are interested in.
