How to import sessions and sub-sessions into program schedule?

If you’re importing accepted abstracts into Program schedule, Dryfta would automatically populate the session title, description and presenting speakers using the abstract IDs. You just need to add time slots and venues in the import file.

Here’s how to import program schedule:

Go to Import Program Schedule > Import sessions tab and download the sample file. Open the downloaded file and arrange it with track (optional), venue (optional) and time slots.  Then, go to Import Program Schedule > Import sessions tab and import your updated sample file (make sure it is saved in CSV format).

Sessions have sub-sessions as well?

Once sessions are imported, go to Import Program Schedule > Import sub-sessions tab and download the sample file. In this sample file, simply enter the abstract IDs in each sub-session column and then upload by clicking on the Import button. By default, there’re columns for adding up to 3 sub-sessions. f you want to add more sub-sessions, simply copy the columns associated with a sub-session and enter your abstract ID.


  • The sample file includes all of your accepted abstracts and their IDs. If you want to display these abstracts as sub-sessions i.e. within a session, then remove the abstract IDs and description from the abstract ID and description columns respectively. Otherwise, it would overwrite your session titles with abstract titles fetched from the respective abstract IDs.
  • In Speaker column, add speaker IDs exactly how they are added in the sample file. Do not add their names. The sample file automatically generates the abstract IDs and the speaker IDs. You do not need to add speaker IDs manually.
  • Make sure the clock format is same for all sessions. For example, if you were using 12-hour clock format for one session and for another you were using 24-hour clock format, this would cause the system to have different clock format for different sessions. In other words, be consistent.
  • Date and Time slots columns are mandatory.
  • You can choose to ignore the tracks and formats columns.
  • Sessions have different color bars. These are used to differentiate sessions of a particular track.
