Map Your Show (MYS)
Lineup Ninja can integrate your agenda data with Map Your Show.
Integrations can be created with both the ‘staging’ MYS service and the ‘production’ service. You should create one integration for staging and a separate once for production. This will enable you to test any content changes before pushing them live to you attendees.
Create the integration
In your Lineup Ninja event, click the ‘Publish’ menu item and then click the ‘Integrate’ button under ‘Map Your Show’. This will create a new integration.
A dialog will be displayed, compete the requested fields:
Username and Password for MYS API
Your MYS account manager will provide you with the username and password for the API. This is different to the username and password you use to login
Your MYS account manager will provide you with your show code.
You can publish to either MYS Production or Staging. You should create one integration for staging and a separate once for production. You cannot change an integration between staging and production after it is created.
In MYS sessions can have an ‘Event Type’. To use Lineup Ninja to set this value you need to label your sessions with a label that has the exact same name as the value you would like for the the ‘Event Type’. For example if you want the ‘Event Type’ to be ‘Breakouts And Workshops’ then you must create a label called ‘Breakouts and Workshops’ and then assign this label to the sessions you want to have this ‘Event Type’.
One you have labeled your sessions choose the labels in this part of the configuration. When the integration runs it will check to see if an ‘Event Type’ already exists with a matching name. If not it will create it, otherwise it will use the existing ‘Event Type’.
You can choose which speakers and sessions you want to publish to mys. For example you may have sessions that you do not want to be published ahead of the event. There are various options for ‘Filter Speakers’ and ‘Filter Sessions’. If you need assistance with configuring these please ask.
Tidying Up Data
There are four options you can configure to automatically tidy up data in mys when a session becomes unscheduled or deleted, or a speakers sessions are unscheduled or the speaker is deleted. If you need assistance with configuring these please ask.
Publishing your schedule
To update the speakers and sessions in mys the schedule needs to be published. This will update the data in mys.
To publish your schedule just click the ‘Publish’ button!
You may be asked if you wish to publish a ‘Full’ schedule or a ‘Changes Only’ update. MYS limits the number of times we can call their API per minute so a ‘Full’ publish can take several minutes. In most instances a ‘Changes Only’ publish will be much quicker and achieve the same results.
