Admin Getting Started Guide
For Attendance Tracking Users
There Are 2 Different User Roles To Be Aware of in Conferences i/o...
Creating & Editing Sessions
Configuring CPE Certificates
Managing Session Evaluation Questions
Reviewing Attendance Data and Adjusting Credits
Sending CPE Certificates
Tasks performed by the Admin are primarily completed before and after an event. Admin tasks can include:
- Create Polls
- Embed Polls into PowerPoint
- Moderate Q&A
- Respond to Questions
- Export data report
Moderators manage the features & settings within a specific session. Moderator tasks can include setup prior to an event as well as real-time management.
*Having a separate moderator in each session room is ideal but not required. Presenters can easily "self-moderate" their session.
Admin First Steps
What are Check-in and Check-out Codes?
These codes are typically only used at Group Live (non-virtual) sessions to serve as an additional measure to prevent any falsified attendance claims.
If you're using our Attendee Self Check-in Mode we generally recommend not using the check-in / out codes unless falsified claims becomes a known issue.
Admins have the option to require attendees to enter a specific code in order to check-in or out of the session.
Early Check-in Prevention
Admins can set a Check-in Time Limit to help prevent attendees from checking-in to a session too early, or accessing future sessions that have already been created.
Click Update Attendance Constraints from the Attendance Tracking Modes & Settings page
For example, entering "15" in the box above would prevent attendees from being able to check-in until 15 minutes before a session starts.
Hybrid Delivery Format
When the session Delivery Format is set to Hybrid, attendees will be prompted to indicate whether they are attending in-person or virtually upon check in.
