For portals with the ability to configure multiple providers for a session, when creating, editing, or copying an event, a Secondary Preferred Instructors field appears on the Advanced Criteria panel of the Session Defaults step. This option enables you to add a secondary preferred instructor. In addition, the Preferred Instructors field name changes to Primary Preferred Instructors.
Note: The changes to the instructors fields only appear if enabled by a backend setting. Once enabled, the field appears for both new and existing events.
