Give users backstage permissions by adding them as a Presenter.

  • Remember to click Save Changes at the top of the page before leaving the tab or clicking View Page. Otherwise, you’ll lose your work.

Why add a presenter?

Adding a user as a presenter gives them backstage permissions (see below) for that session.

For example, if someone will be moderating three sessions, you should add them to those three sessions as a Presenter. They will only have backstage permissions for those individual sessions.

The preferred way to give speakers backstage permissions is through the Speakers tab. Their user account must be linked to their speaker page, then the speaker page is added to the Speakers tab.

Adding speakers here in the Presenters tab is a secondary option.

About backstage permissions

Speakers, moderators, and support staff all have the same backstage permissions. This means they can use moderation tools, join the greenroom, and edit the session using the front-end editor.

Site admins already have these permissions for all sessions. Other users must be added to individual sessions.
