Speaker registration form is a custom form we built for your demo site using the Form builder tool inside Dryfta dashboard. You can disable it. It was suppose to allow speakers to register themselves from the website. You can have multiple registration forms for attendees with different roles viz. speakers, moderators, general attendees, volunteers etc.
It is pretty straightforward actually. In this tutorial, we will add a field to be displayed publicly in speakers profile.
First, go to the Form builder tool, click on Create new form button to create a new form, name it, for example, Speakers bio, select the speaker role when asked to choose a role type. This creates a form which is supposed to be used to enter speaker-specific data.
Now. click on Add new field to create a new field called “Bio” under Speaker bio form. Enter all the details of the field, select the speaker bio form from the right, make it published, set access level to public so anyone who visits the website can see this field in the profile, and tick the box to display this field in the profile. See screenshot below.
Now, go to Contacts and click on a speaker’s profile to enter her bio. Let’s say, I want to add bio for Yvonne Stewart. I click on her name to go to her contact details page, and under Speakers bio section, I add some information about her in the Bio field and clicked on Save button to save it. See screenshot below.
This information, now displays under Yvonne’s overview section in her public profile. See screenshot.
Every attendee has a dashboard which he/she can access by logging in on your event website. When they register or purchase a ticket, the system sends them an email with login credentials to log in to the website and access their details.
In their dashboard, they can edit their registration details, submit abstracts, print and download invoices, enable their public profile, manage their event schedule, submit reviews for assigned abstracts (only available to reviewers) and more.
Update profile page
My Abstracts page – list abstracts that are submitted by the author and the Submit abstract button to submit new abstracts
Tickets & Invoices page – lists orders placed by the attendee for purchasing tickets and merchandises
My Schedule page – list sessions attendee has added to her personal schedule along with CE credits, if any.
To-Dos page – shows tasks details that are assigned to this attendee
Assigned abstracts page – displayed only to reviewers and lists abstracts that have been assigned to the logged-in reviewer
