Learn the differences between using the hide option, making sessions private, and hiding sessions from attendees that are not allowed to the session.

Hidden Sessions

Use this option if you don't want to delete a session but don't want it to be accessible to anyone but admins.

  • Only admins can see it on the agenda.

  • Only admins can enter the session.

  • Attendees and speakers cannot enter the session even if they have the direct link and if their ticket is allowed to enter the session.

To hide a session:

  • Go to your admin console's Agenda & Speakers tab

  • Click the eye icon under the Access column

  • When the icon turns red, that means the session is now hidden.


Private Sessions

Use this option if you have sessions for selected individuals like VIPs.

  • Only admins, attendees pre-registered for the session, and speakers assigned to the session can see it on the agenda.

  • Only admins, attendees pre-registered for the session, and speakers assigned to the session can enter the session.

  • Attendees with a ticket allowed to enter the session but not pre-registered cannot see or enter the session.

To set the session as private:

  • Go to your admin console's Agenda & Speakers tab

  • Click the edit icon on the session.

  • In the session details, scroll down and click Advanced Settings

  • Enable Set session as private.


Hiding Sessions in the Virtual Event Hub Agenda for Attendees Not Allowed to Join

Use this option if you don't want to confuse attendees with restricted tickets by showing them only the sessions where they are allowed to join.

  • Only admins, speakers (even not assigned to the session), and attendees with allowed tickets can see the session in the virtual event hub agenda.

  • Only admins, speakers assigned to the session, and attendees with allowed tickets can enter the session.

  • Everyone can see the session on the event landing page agenda.

You'll see the option to hide the session for attendees not allowed to join after deselecting the restricted tickets from the session details:

  • Go to your admin console's Agenda & Speakers tab

  • Click the edit icon on the session.

  • In the session details, scroll down and click Advanced Settings

  • Deselect the tickets that are not allowed to the session under Ticket Types

  • Enable the toggle for "Hide this session in virtual event hub agenda if the attendee is not allowed to join the session."
