Timetable Grid

How do I present my agenda as a timetable?

There are two options to display your agenda, either as a list of sessions, or as a timetable grid.

The timetable grid looks like this where the columns are either the locations or track in your event.

An example of the Tiemtable view

To enable this page in the agenda app do the following

  • Navigate to Agenda Planning
  • Click on ‘Publish Agenda’ in the right-hand menu
  • Click the name of your existing agenda app.
  • Click ‘Configure’
  • In the ‘General Configuration’ select ‘Timetable’ in the ‘Navigation Items’ section
  • A new section will appear in the configuration called ‘Timetable Page’. Click to expand that section.
  • Choose whether you want to show tracks or locations. You can also choose the order the items are shown, and hide any tracks/locations you don’t want to show.
    • If you choose ‘tracks’ then also ensure the tracks you want to publish are included in the ‘Tracks’ section of ‘General Configuration’.
  • Save your publication
  • Publish your publication

What colors are used for the sessions?

By default the Track colors are used for the background color of the sessions. You can optionally choose to show the color of the location instead:

Color options for the timetable

If a session has multiple tracks then the colors will be applied depending on whether you are showing tracks or locations in the grid.

  • If you are showing tracks then the background color will be the color of that track only.
  • If you are showing locations then the track colors will be shown in the left hand border, and the background of the session will be grey.

How do I show speaker names?

You can optionally choose to show the speaker names. If you are using Speaker Roles they will also be shown.

How do I add logos to the columns?

The columns in the timetable represent either tracks or locations. To help your user navigate the agenda you can add logos to the columns.

To add logs do the following

  • Navigate to Agenda Planning
  • Click ‘Locations’ or ‘Tracks’ from the left hand menu
  • Click the name of the item you want to set a logo fo
  • Scroll down to ‘Files’
  • Choose ‘Location Logo’ or ‘Track Logo’ from the ‘Type of Image or File’
  • Upload the logo
  • Repeat for other tracks or locations
  • Navigate to ‘Publish Agenda’
  • Click ‘Publish’ for your Agenda App to publish the new logos

What are the recommendations for logos?

We make the following recommendations:

  • Use the same height and width for all logos, this will ensure a consistent presentation.
  • Upload a high resolution image, we will automatically scale it appropriately.
  • Avoid logos with a high level of detail as they may look unclear when scaled down to fit on the timetable.
