Technical requirements

For the best experience, we recommend the following:

  • Use your computer rather than your mobile device. Although both will work, the quality should be better with your computer.
  • Make sure your connection speed is 600 kbps (up/down) or better. You can test your Internet connection speed at SpeedTest.net.
  • Using a wired Ethernet connection provides the best quality, but Wifi should be fine.
  • You won’t need a camera or microphone. All questions will be typed directly in the Q&A window.

If you are having trouble with any of the steps in this process, please contact GSA@warpspeedtech.com.

Building your schedule

You will use the Planner / App to access the sessions. To make the conference easier to navigate, we strongly recommend you build your schedule in the week before the meeting using the schedule function of the Planner/App. To build your schedule:

  • First you must register for TAGC 2020 Online.
  • Once you have registered, log in to the Program Planner or Mobile App using your registration badge numberand your last name. If you don’t know your badge number, you can access it through the Registration Resource Center. Click “Forgot login info” and the badge number will be sent to you via email.
  • Once logged in, browse or search the sessions. Click on sessions of interest. Add sessions or presentations to your personal schedule using the “Add event to your schedule” icon, which is in the top right-hand corner of each session:

  • Your schedule will be available on the “Schedule” tab whenever you are logged in to either the Program Planner or Mobile App (it will synch across both).

Accessing the sessions

About five minutes before your chosen session starts:

  • Log into the Program Planner or Mobile App, using your badge number and last name
  • Access your personal schedule using the “Schedule” tab.
  • Tap or click the “Join Webinar” button on your chosen session. This will allow you to join the Zoom Webinar.

The “Join Webinar” button for each session will not be visible until ten minutes before the session starts.

Asking questions

Send your questions through the Zoom Q&A window to the session chair. The chair will select questions to ask the presenter. Note that due to the size of the sessions, there may not be time to answer all of the questions.

All presenters have been encouraged to provide contact information on their final slide. You can also post a discussion item in the appropriate TAGC Slack channel.


All presentations (keynotes and sessions) will be available for registered attendees to view online for thirty days following TAGC 2020 Online. The recordings will be available via the Program Planner or Mobile App.

Code of conduct

When you register for TAGC you agree to abide by the GSA Conferences Code of Conduct. Our Code of Conduct was established to communicate a transparent set of standards and guidelines for acceptable behavior at GSA Conferences and to provide a positive, safe, and welcoming environment for all attendees. All sessions will be moderated for disruptive behavior.
