Scenario

If you are on our Success (or our old Business) plans, you have the option to import a CSV of your Speakers into your Event. This can be a great time-saver if you or your team add Speaker details to one sheet to serve as a single point of truth.

Read on to learn more about how you can import Speakers' details.

Quick start

1. Navigate to Content: Speakers

2. Click on Import (Remember that the +Add button will still allow you to add Speakers individually)

3. Download the Speaker Import CSV template and fill in the necessary details. Remember that you will be able able to fill in some of the details at a later stage. Remember that your Speakers need a First Name and an Email to be imported. Any other field (such as Last Name, Prefix, Suffix, Company, or Company title) can be left blank

Pro Tip: If you don't have all of the fields, remember that you can always import any Speakers that you had previously added, and their records will update (provided you previously imported the Speakers with an email and a first name)

 

4. When importing Speakers, you will also have the ability to send sign-in emails in bulk to all of the Speakers that are on the CSV

Please note: You won't be able to send emails to only a few Speakers from your import. If you only want to send emails to a few Speakers from your import, we recommend manually sending them their login details. Remember to de-select 'send sign-in email to new Speakers' from the import modal if you decide to take the manual route.

What happens after importing

After importing your Speakers, you will still need to add their picture to the site manually. You can add a Speaker picture by clicking on the three dots next to their record and selecting Edit record. 

You will also need to manually add any Talks for your Speakers after they were imported. Remember that only speakers with an active Speaker record and an active Talk record will show up on the front-end of the site.
