Tracks are an advanced function of the Agenda feature, and you can use them to categorize sessions. This lets attendees easily filter Agenda sessions down to only those that match their role or interest. Tracks + Groups can also be used to restrict access to certain Agenda sessions.

Add tracks

From the Edit Event/Community page, hover over the Agenda feature, and click Edit. This takes you to the Sessions tab of the Agenda page.

You must create tracks before you can apply them to sessions. Click the Tracks tab, and then click New Track.

⭐️ Keep in mind, you can also import multiple tracks at once.

In the modal that appears, enter the following:

  • Track Name - This is visible in the expanded session view and in the Agenda filters.

  • Track Short Name - The Short Name is visible in the daily view of the Agenda.

  • Track Color - The Track Color appears with the Short Name in the Agenda daily view, the expanded session view, and the Agenda filters.

  • Visible To - The Visible To field is optional, and you can use it to restrict visibility to specific Groups.

⭐️ Keep in mind, limited information is included in the daily view of the Agenda. More information is included in the session view, when the session is clicked.

Assign tracks to Agenda sessions

Once you add tracks, you can assign them to new or existing Agenda sessions on the Sessions tab. To assign a track to an existing session, click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to a session and select Assign to Track.

In the modal that appears, select the tracks you want to assign from the drop-down and click Save Changes.

⭐️ ️Keep in mind, if you assign multiple tracks to a session, and one or more tracks are visible to certain groups, the session will only be visible to attendees that are part of those groups. For example, if you select the Sponsor and VIP tracks, and the VIP track is visible to the VIP group while the Sponsor track has no group visibility restriction, the session will only be visible to VIP group members.

Manage tracks

Once you've created some tracks, you can manage them in a couple ways from the Tracks tab.

Use the Settings (⚙️) icon next to each item to Edit or Delete a track, or click and drag on the two lines next to the cog to re-order the tracks.

You can also check the boxes next to several tracks, and then click the three dots next to the search field to export or delete multiple tracks at once.

Tracks in practice

When attendees view the Agenda on the Web App or Mobile App, the name of the track(s) applied to each session appears below the session name.

Attendees can click or tap the filter button in the top right corner of the screen to filter sessions by track as well.
