This guide shares the steps to create and manage a multi-session conference within TECPDS to award certificates for virtual, hybrid, or face-to-face events. The conference tool is an extension of the TECPDS certificate generation tool and is currently only available to organizations on TECPDS. To begin, review our recommendations for using the TECPDS conference tool, then scroll down for step-by-step instructions.
Log in to your TECPDS account. To create conferences, you will have to switch to your “Organization Admin Account” by clicking the button from your dashboard. Once you click on it, your dashboard will change to your organization’s.
Please note, this feature is only available to organizations on TECPDS. For more information, please contact us.
Once you are switched to your organization’s dashboard, scroll down the page until you reach the button labeled “Manage Conference” and click on it.
After clicking on the “Manage Conferences” button, you will be taken to a new page with a list of your organization’s past conferences. To create a new conference, click on the “add conference button”.
After clicking the button, you will be taken to the “Conference Organizer” page. On this page, you will fill out the information for your conference and when done, click “submit.”
Once you click submit, your conference will be processed and created. You will be able to find it in your list of existing conferences. To create sessions for your conference, click on the green “+” button at the right side of your conference entry.
After clicking the green “+” button, the “Manage Sessions” window should appear as shown below. To enter or add a session, click the blue “Add Session” button at the top right.
After clicking “Add Session,” a new window will appear called “New Conference Session,” where you can enter the details of the session for the conference you are creating. The areas marked with red asterisks indicated the boxes that require information before submitting.
Your list of sessions will appear on this screen.
Use these buttons to manage your sessions:
