You can create your virtual stages and sessions on your event.
To do this, you need to open the "Sessions" tab in the left-side menu.
Please click on the blue button "Add/Import". Here you can add each session manually or import them.
To import a session you can download the template, enter the necessary information about all sessions into it and upload it to the platform. In this case, all sessions, stages, and tracks will be created automatically.
In the template, you will find detailed instructions for filling out all the fields on the second sheet of the file. Moreover, there is a filled test database added as an example on the third sheet.
Please check out a detailed guide on how the data can be imported properly to the platform.
Add Sessions Manually
When you add sessions manually, you need to give it a title, enter its date and time, add a description, choose the source of streaming, and assign stage, track, and speakers to your session.
You can stream through the following sources:
You can choose this option if you want to stream directly through the PINE platform using our backstage or via RTMP. You will be able to choose the type of streaming in the backstage of the particular session from the PINE’s stage.
Please note that this option is paid and has limited streaming hours.
When choosing this source you will be able to upload a link to a stream that will be broadcast by means of 3rd party players (YouTube, Facecast, Vimeo, etc.). This link can be uploaded in the Media library and turned on in the media tab on the stage.
Note: When you choose a 3rd party player which is not Youtube, Fscecast, or Vimeo we strongly recommend that you test the streaming from this player in advance. Our platform supports many players, but some of them may have such features that will prevent it from being integrated into our platform.
Choose this source if you want to add a link that will lead your attendees to the external service. The link can be obtained in the 3rd-party service you use for this stream.
You can choose this type of source if there are no online sessions and you want just to add some information about the offline session.
You can also add more details to your session if you click on "More fields". There you can add: restrictions, sponsors to the "organized by" section, a custom badge, and topics.
What is "Break"?
A break can be added when there are no sessions planned in the schedule. You can also link a sponsor to a break and launch media from the media tab on the stage.
What is "Track"?
A track is a global topic that can logically combine several sessions on different stages.
Add tracks for the convenience of your attendees. They will be able to filter sessions by topics they are interested in.
