Online Planner Tips for #SLA2015

It’s less than a month until SLA 2015 in Boston, and we hope you have begun planning your networking and learning strategy for the conference.  (Not registered yet? Register right now!)

Using the online planner is a cinch. Here are some tips:

Sorting and Searching

You can easily sort the sessions in the schedule to find exactly what you’re interested in. Sort by event category, by level (fundamental, intermediate, advanced), by presenting unit (chapter, division or caucus) or by sponsor.  For example, if you are interested in advanced sessions, hover over Level, located in the right hand column, and select “Advanced” in the pop-up menu.

Search by keyword or name to find sessions on particular topics or speakers you may know.

To view session descriptions you can hover over any listing, or click the session title.

Building Your Schedule

Customize your schedule for an at-a-glance view of your time in Boston. After logging in, add a session to your schedule by clicking the white circle next to the session title. A check mark indicates that a session is on your personal schedule. You can also click the Add to My Sched button located directly underneath the session title.

To view your schedule click your photo at the top right of the screen and click MySched. Your personalized schedule will appear and you’re ready to share your SLA 2015 schedule with your colleagues!

Sharing and Exporting

With the online planner, you can connect your favorite social networking sites to see which sessions your friends, followers, and connections will be attending. You can also export your planner to Outlook, Google Calendar, and Apple iCal. Exporting provides you with offline access to your calendar, and allows you to add your own personal events and reminders.

When you’re done building your personalized schedule, you can share your itinerary on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the icons located above the search bar, or e-mail it to other attendees. Be sure to add #SLA2015 to your tweet. It’ll be retweeted by @SLAconf so others can view your schedule and see what sessions they might be interested in.

Mobile Site and App

The online planner is also accessible from your mobile device.  Use it on your iPhone, Droid, or Blackberry.  The mobile app, sponsored by the New York Times (Booth #1306 in the INFO-EXPO), is coming soon!

Any large business structure consists of several units, and local teams are formed in each department who are competing with each other. Spy app can play a key role in this struggle.
