The Search and Edit grid is available in Conference Management. The grid allows direct editing of select fields, similar to a spreadsheet tool.
To access the grid, go to Conference Management (Events>Conference) by accessing:
- Quick Link in Active Events List
- Tab in Left navigation
- Quick Link at top right
The Search and Edit grid is accessed by clicking the Search and Edit button at the bottom of the Session Search. If you do not select any criteria, you will get all the sessions in the grid. There is a 50 session per page maximum, and the list paginates. You can access the pagination feature at the bottom right of the grid.
The following fields are available in Search & Edit
ID - the automatically generated ID, cannot be updated.
Session Number - conference manager-specified alphanumberic session code or number
Session Title - please make sure not to accidentally delete this
Room Number - type in the room number or name
Session Date - choose from a dropdown. Populate in Session Date Management if changes to options are required.
Session Start - use a time tool to specify the start time
Session End - use a time tool to specify the end time
Publish - check or uncheck.
Editing the resulting session list is done by double clicking into a cell, and then updating the information in that cell and hit Enter or Tab keys to save.
- Edit a single cell – click into the cell, update the information in the cell, and hit the Enter key to save and close the cell.
- Editing multiple cells – click into a cell, update the information in the cell, then hit the Tab key to save the change and move to the next available cell. If you are in the Publish cell, you can hit the space bar to toggle the checkbox between checked and unchecked.
- Use the Escape (Esc) key to close a cell without saving the change.
To sort the results, click on one of the headers. This will sort the list in ascending order, to sort in descending order click the header again. As you make changes the list will auto-update according to the sort order.
Narrowing the results
To narrow the list of results in the Search and Edit grid, use the search option on the top right of the grid. Note – the list will update as you edit, so if you remove the words/option that you searched for the list will auto update to remove the session from your active list. It will still be there when you clear your search.
