1. Selecting Posters from the dashboard menu will display all additional menu items associated with the poster presentations for your event including the overview of all posters imported and uploaded thus far, the categories under which they’ll be displayed, the data import, and communications sections. To begin inviting poster and presentation authors, navigate to the Communications section.
2. Here, you can begin to create an individualized invitation email for your poster authors, as well as a reminder and confirmation text. The provided email templates are a great place to start, as they contain many of the required pieces of information for your poster authors, including the variables that will allow them to access their own accounts later on. Variables are email elements which display individualized information for each poster author and add a personal touch to your invitation and reminder emails. It’s integral that you make use of the Invitation Link variable so that each author receives their own link to create their accounts and upload their posters and presentations. We strongly recommend making use of all of the variable elements at some point in your invitation and reminder texts. Be sure to save your emails as you build them, the option for which is at the bottom of the text.
