Under sessions you can define which sessions will occur during the congress per congress. Clicking on the ‘Sessions’ icon in the menu bar results in the ‘List Sessions’ screen below being displayed.
Clicking on ‘View’, ‘Edit’ and ‘New’ gets you in the ‘View/Edit/New Session Data’ screen, shown below.
In the ‘View/Edit/New Session Data’ screen you can view, modify or enter the following session data:
Enter the sequence number of the session in this field. This sequence number defines the
position in the list of sessions in the ‘List Sessions’ screen.
Enter the code of the session that will be used during the congress in this field. This session code can be used for sorting according to code when printing out data, and similar actions.
If you are going to use the ‘Session Code’ to sort the order in which lists are to be printed, it is important to remember that the sort takes into account the number of characters in the code. The codes with the least number of characters are always first in the list.
E.g. the code Z1 is always before the code A01, because Z1 only has two characters and A01 has three. After number of characters have been taken into account, the sort is done alphabetically.
Enter the name of the session in this field.
Enter the date on which the session will take place.
