Add a Speaker to to a Meeting Activity

Meeting Activities are often used to allow people to register and/or preview sessions available during the meeting. In order to provide full information about the activity you can add a Meeting Activity Speaker record. This record will allow you to store information about one or more presenters for the sessions. You can record costs associated with hiring the speakers if applicable and store biography information to display on the portal so that people can learn more about the speakers. You can access the Meeting Activity Speaker Record from the Meeting Activity related records or through Advanced Find.

For an overview, see the video below.
