How to use your Outlook calendar for the event
Add sessions to your calendar
Select the group “Workplace Ninja Summit” on the left.
Select the day you want to organize. On the selected day you will see all the sessions of the day.
Blue = Sessions in Channel 1
Green = Sessions in Channel 2
Orange = Sessions in Channel 3
We have created a full-day meeting for all the three channels over all the event days. This means, that you will only have three links to handle: One link for each channel. So you will have it easier to switch between the channels.
Do you want to add sessions to your personal calendar? Just select one session and use the “add to my calendar” button:
When you like to join the session, just double click on the session in your calendar. A new window will open including the link to the channel, where the session will be held. Then select “Join Microsoft Teams Meeting” AND ENJOY!
Hope that helps to find your session and join to the right time 😊
Be aware, the time we use is Central European Time. With adding your selected sessions to the calendar, they should appear in your timezone.
