When using an abstract event and displaying sessions on your website agenda, you have the ability to link abstracts to sessions. Linking abstracts to a session allows the abstract information to be viewed by attendees on your agenda.
Depending on your session and abstract configuration, you have the option of linking multiple abstracts to a single session, then assigning a session running order. Alternatively, you can have one abstract per session.
The first step is to create sessions in your event. The session will contain a title, date, and start/end time. Sessions can be added individually by going to Setup > Program > Sessions, or be imported in bulk.
Link abstracts to sessions
Once sessions have been created, you can begin assigning abstracts to sessions. Follow the steps below to assign an abstract to a session:
- Go to Abstracts > Management > Submissions
- Select the abstract(s) you want to assign a session to
- Click the 'Tools' dropdown and select “Change session…”
- In the 'Change Session' panel, select the sessions from the dropdown
- Click "Save"
Note: Abstract content will not appear on the program until the event manager publishes the abstracts on the website.
Once abstracts have been linked to sessions, you can view the session name in the “Sessions” column of the ‘Abstracts > Management > Submissions’ page. If you do not see the “Session” column, click the ‘Display columns’ dropdown in the top left and select the “Session” display column.
In addition, you can see how many abstracts are linked to an individual sessions by viewing the “Abstracts” column on the ‘Setup > Program > Sessions’ page. If you do not see the “Abstracts” column, click the ‘Display columns’ dropdown in the top left and select the “Abstracts” display column.
