How to build your schedule

We strongly recommend you build your schedule in the App before the meeting starts. It will make it easier to navigate the live sessions.

  • Click on sessions or presentations of interest in the Agenda tab. Add sessions or presentations to your personal schedule using the “Add event to your schedule” icon:
  • Your schedule will be available at the “My Schedule” tab whenever you are logged in to the App.

How to search

The search bar will search across session and presentation titles and descriptions, abstracts, and presenter names. Wildcard searches are done by entering the first characters of the word. Results will be tabbed by day, so be sure to click through each of the day tabs.

Direct Message
The mobile app has a new function to connect with your colleagues—direct messages. You can use this feature to send and receive private messages to other attendees through the app.

To send a direct message, search the Attendee List for the person you want to chat with and click their name. In the upper left corner, you will see a messaging icon that will bring you to your chat with that attendee.
