How do I use the Program Planner?
Choose from three options to find session details:
Login and create your personal itinerary
This option allows you to search all sessions without logging into the Program Planner. You may conduct a detailed search by scrolling over the program tab and selecting one of the following browse by search fields. You can also select Schedule at Glance to see the entire program layout by date and time.
Browse by search field options:
A typical search might begin by entering a keyword "Improvement" in the keyword search box. A listing of every session with "improvement" in the title will appear in the search results displayed below the search panel. The word "improvement" will be highlighted if it is included in the session title.
Narrow the results of your keyword search by first using a combination of the other search choices in the menu. For example, you can choose to browse by day and then type "improvement" into the search bar. Your search will return all sessions with "improvement" in the title on Monday.
Once the list of sessions appears, you can select the title of each session to read the full session details in a pop-up box.
