VIRTUAL PLATFORM SPECIFIC FAQS
How do I access the sessions?
Click on ‘sessions’ in the top navigation bar. When a session is available to enter the ‘add to calendar’ button will switch to a ‘live’, ‘early entrance’, or ‘on-demand’ button that you can click to enter. If you see a black box where the video should be please disable your pop-up blocker and refresh.
I missed a session, or I’d like to re-watch one – will they be available? When and how do I access them?
Sessions will be available at the completion of each day. They are accessible from the session page in this platform for six weeks following the event by clicking ‘on-demand’.
The times listed in the agenda seem incorrect, it says that they are in PT?
Your profile time zone defaults to PT. If you have updated it there, your session times will display in your correct time zone instead of PT as stated at the top of the page.
I’m in a session or sponsor booth and the video box is black and won’t play?
This is generally because of a pop-up blocker. Please disable yours and refresh. If that please ensure that you are logging in from either Chrome, Firefox or Edge and that is it up to date.
I can see the video but I don’t hear anything?
Hover your mouse over the video box and a speaker will appear in the bottom left, make sure your volume is up. Also check that your computer is set to send audio to the correct speakers.
I’m having trouble connecting to chats/sessions.
Please ensure that you are logging in from either Chrome, Firefox or Edge and that is it up to date with the pop-up blocker disabled.
I fulfilled the requirements for a badge and it didn’t show?
Some of them take a few minutes to populate. If you don’t see it in 5 minutes please refresh and check your profile. If you still don’t have it please say hello in the live tech support so we can assist you. Please know we cannot manually populate badges but will try to confirm why it hasn’t captured you.
