Moderator/Presenter Invitation and Access
Last updated: January 21, 2020
Organizers assign Moderator and Presenter roles as part of the Event creation and management process. There are two ways for Moderators and Presenters to access the Event: email invitation or calendar link.
Accessing Events via Email Invitation:
An email invitation will arrive in the Moderator or Presenter's inbox:
Note: Moderators and Presenters should check their junk/spam folders and whitelist EventBuilder emails.
The email provides basic instructions for your Moderator or Presenter, including Event details and access instructions:
Launching EventBuilder and Accessing Event
After clicking the “Event Log In” button, the user will be directly taken to the EventBuilder Portal where they will have three options:
- Opening the Microsoft Teams or Skype For Business room takes the Moderator or Presenter to the meeting room where they can monitor, participate, and/or speak during the Event.
- Opening the EventBuilder Console takes the Moderator or Presenter to their Event tools and controls (these will vary depending on the User’s role.)
Moderator Console View
- Selecting the “Click here to return to your Dashboard” option takes the Moderator or Presenter to an overview of the events they are currently scheduled to attend within a selected date range.
Accessing Events via Outlook Calendar Invite
Note: If your Moderator or Presenter does not use Outlook, they will need to import the invite.ics file into their calendar program.
The email invitation includes a calendar link:
This allows Moderators or Presenters to add the Event to their Outlook calendar, where they can click on the Event and be directed to the EventBuilder Portal. Once logged in, the connection options will be the same: Open in Microsoft Teams, Open EventBuilder Console, Return to Dashboard.
