Adding a speaker

In order to add a speaker, you must first add a user to the Drupal instance.

After adding a user, you may, for example, create a new session by going to [Content] > [Add Content] > [Session]. The Speaker(s) field is now an autocomplete field populated with users accounts of your Drupal instance.

Voting on sessions

  1. Voting usually begins once you've finished accepting new sessions, so votes are applied fairly.
  2. Adjust flag access on the Session vote flag (admin/structure/flags/manage/session_vote) to allow other roles to vote on sessions. Additionally, you'll need to check off which display options apply best to your site.
  3. You will probably want to do some additional theming to ensure the "Vote for this session" links are more prominent on session nodes, or build a view that shows all nodes that haven't been voted on by the current user, filterable by track/experience level.

Create sessions - Session collection

  1. The COD Session feature is enabled by default (admin/build/modules). This enables the 'Conference administration' admin menu.
  2. Update the session Track field allowed values in the Session content type (admin/content/node-type/session/fields/field_track).
  3. As sessions are created, visit the Session administration (conference-admin/sessions) to manage sessions; review and publish submitted sessions so they are visible to the public.

Create the schedule

The cod_schedule view is restricted by default to keep the schedule private while organizers are still working on it. It doesn't display anything until Rooms and Timeslots are created, and Sessions are assigned to Timeslots.

Provide Event / Conference Tickets / Registrations

If you plan to require registration for your event/conference (and/or the different opportunities during the event/conference) then you need to enable the COD Registration feature. You may have enabled this feature during installation, but you can check (and enable if needed) by following the steps below:
