Adding Break sessions

You can add interactive (Q&A, poll and survey) and non-interactive sessions in any order. By default, sessions are ordered and appear in the Audience Web App by their start and end timings. When two sessions have identical start and end times, the session added first will be displayed first. You can also choose to order the sessions manually. Our recommendation is to set up sessions in the order defined in your event agenda.

Changes made to any session details via the Dashboard will apply in the Audience Web App and Panels instantly.

Break session type is suitable for indicating when breaks such as tea and coffee breaks are in your agenda. It is commonly used to build an event agenda on the Audience Web App.

Adding a Break session is similar to adding other session types. In this article, we will guide you through the individual fields and options when adding a Break session type.

Add New Break Session

Go to the Agenda page:

Then click on the Add Session button, then under Select Session Type, choose Break. If you change to another session type under Select Session Type, content entered in the previous session type will be lost when you click the Add button.


Name

This is the name of the break session.

Required, cannot be blank. Name of session should have a length of 3 to 100 characters.

Location

If you have different locations for each session, you may put the location of the session here, e.g. Ballroom A, Level 2. This will be visible on the Agenda in the Audience Web App. If all your sessions reside in the same venue, it is not necessary to provide the location here - consider putting it in the description of your Event Details instead.

Optional, can be blank. You are limited to 50 characters of text.

Time

Choose your session start and end date/time according to your event agenda. The start and end dates are constrained by your Pigeonhole Duration.

Important
Once a session starts, you cannot change the session start time or remove the session.

If there are changes to the session start or end timings, you can edit the session to update the timings. Alternatively, on your Dashboard Agenda page, the session dropdown menu provides several quick functions (dependent on the session state) to change the start/end timings. As usual, changes to timings are applied immediately across all interfaces including the Audience Web App.
