Begin composing your call for speakers by creating an application form to capture the information required to evaluate a speaker’s proposal. Select the Speaker Workflows tab from the left-hand sidebar and click the Create Form menu item.
Create the application form
Similar to building a registration form or survey, select and drag components from the Form Components area onto the Form Preview area. On each component, there is an "Edit" and a "Delete" icon. To reorganize the order of components click the "hamburger" icon and drag the component to its desired position.
In addition to the typical form component fields, the Speaker Application Form Builder has an additional section of available fields. These are connected to the Speaker section on the Scheduling tab and will be publicly available on the event website. If any of these fields are filled out by an applicant, the information will be copied over to their speaker profile, created on the Speaker screen when an application is approved.
The fields that are connected to speaker profiles and are publicly facing are:
- First name
- Last name
- Profile Photo
- Company Logo
- Twitter Profile
- Facebook Profile
- LinkedIn Profile
- Google+ Profile
Note: The "First name," "Last name," and "Email" fields are always required.
Tip: The Form Components area will follow your progress as you scroll down the page. If you prefer to have this section stationary, just click the lock icon on the right-hand side of the area.
