Bulk upload

The bulk upload for speakers allows you to use a ‘spreadsheet’ to bulk upload your speakers.

Note: The spreadsheet must use the correct template

The title section of the spreadsheet will be the ‘title’ of the speaker. This typically will be things like

  • DR
  • CEO
  • PHD

First & Last names

The first and last name section will be the first and last name of the specific speaker.

The email section will be the contact email of the speaker. This is not required, however, if entered, it will be viable in the app.

The phone section is the ‘phone number’ associated with a specific speaker. Adding this will display in the app under a speaker’s profile. Allowing attendees, the ability to call the speaker.

The company section allows you to add a speaker’s ‘Company’ this can be their own or who they work for.

The description section is the main details for a speaker. This section can be regular ‘text’ OR contain html code for formatting.

The ‘links’ section allows you to add a listing of links to a speaker. The links format must be in a valid JSON format. A valid JSON format is [{“icon”:”icon-globe”,”color”:”#009EDB”,”url”:”https://conbop.com”}] A JSON format is essentially a listing of data, we can break the above format down into 3 parts

  • icon
  • color
  • url

The icon will be the icon name, for example “icon-globe’ will be the globe icon.

The color is any hex color, this will assign the color to the icon selected in app

The URL is the URL associated with the specific link.

When complete each ‘link’ in the list should be formatted as: [{“icon”:”icon-globe”,”color”:”#009EDB”,”url”:”https://conbop.com”}] To add multiple links, simply separate each section with a comma, for example [{“icon”:”icon-globe”,”color”:”#009EDB”,”url”:”https://conbop.com”},{“icon”:”icon-globe”,”color”:”#009EDB”,”url”:”https://conbop.com”}] As shown above, a new link was added to the list, separated by a comma, however still inside the ‘brackets’

Speaker & attendee ID

The speaker and attendee ID section is the mapping for the system and will determine if a speaker should be added or updated in the system.

When a speaker ID is associated, the system will attempt to ‘update’ the current speaker.

If not, speaker ID is added, it will attempt to add the speaker.

When an attendee ID is associated with a speaker, it will attempt to update both speaker and attendee, as this indicates a speaker / attendee mapping.

It is important to note that incorrectly mapping a speaker and attendee may cause issues with a speaker / attendee. To get the proper mapping, one should always download the speaker spreadsheet from the manage speakers page to ensure the correct data is populated.
