  • Updated

Breaks are useful to add to your schedule so that your attendees can easily plan their day. Adding a break simply blocks out that period of time on your schedule. 

This process may look slightly different depending on whether you are using Table view or Calendar view, so select an option from the tabs below. 

  • To add a break in Table view, simply create a new schedule segment and select Break from the drop down list under "Segment Type".

    If you try to add a break to your schedule where a segment already exists, you will be shown an error message and the changes will not be made.

    If you add a new schedule segment where a break exists, the break will be removed from the schedule automatically.

    Once a break is added to your schedule it will be displayed on the Reception page of your event, as well as in the calendar icon within the top banner.

    Note: Attendees will not be able to add the scheduled break to their agendas.
  • To add a break in Calendar view, create a new segment or click on an existing one to edit it. From the drop down list under "Segment type" select Break

    If you try to add a break to your schedule where a segment already exists, you will be shown an error message. You will be unable to continue until you have removed the existing segment or changed the time of the proposed break. break_to_schedule_1.png

    If you want to create a new segment that conflicts with an existing break segment then a message will be displayed to let you know that the break will be removed and replaced if you choose to continue.
