For portals that have the ability to configure multiple providers for a session, the following differences appear on the Sessions page:
- The link is named .
- If the Secondary Vendor field is completed on the Properties step when configuring the event, then a link appears to the right of the link.
- The Options column includes icons to create virtual and onsite session options. These options only appear once the parent session is created.
- If session options are created for a parent session, then the options display below the parent session and are expanded by default.
Note: The icons in the Options column only appear for portals with the ability to configure multiple providers for a session.
Design Note: An updated interface is available for this page, which can be enabled by administrators in Feature Activation Preferences. With the new design, the functionality of the page is unchanged.
To access the Sessions page, go to ILT > Manage Events & Sessions. Then, select the View Sessions icon in the Options column for the desired event.

Create New Primary and Secondary Vendor Sessions
Clicking either theor link enables administrators to create a new virtual or onsite session, depending on the type of vendor selected when configuring the event. For example, if the primary vendor at the event level is a virtual provider, then clicking the link enables the administrator to create a new virtual session.
Create Virtual and Onsite Session Options
A session option is an additional option for attending the corresponding session. For example, if a virtual session option is added to an onsite session, then users will have the option to attend the virtual session or the onsite session.
If enabled, the following options are now available in the Options column once the parent session is created:
- <Vendor Name> Session Option - Click the icon to create virtual session options. This opens the Parts Schedule step of creating a session. Note: If the primary and secondary vendors are both virtual providers, then two instances of this icon appear in the Options column. The first instance is associated with the primary vendor, and the second instance is associated with the secondary vendor.
- <Vendor Name> Session Option - Click the icon to create onsite session options. This opens the Parts Schedule step of creating a session. Note: If the primary and secondary vendors are both onsite providers, then two instances of this icon appear in the Options column. The first instance is associated with the primary vendor, and the second instance is associated with the secondary vendor.
View Session Options
If session options are added to a parent session, then the options display below the parent session and are expanded by default. Click the Expand/Collapse icon to the left of the Day column to collapse the session options.
Each session option has a separate locator number and roster. The enrollment options may vary, if configured by the administrator.
Session options can only be created for a parent session. Session options cannot be created for a session option.
To view all users associated with the session, including users associated with the session options, click the View Roster icon for the parent session. From the Parent Roster page, select the locator number filter options to view the desired roster.
To view all users associated with a specific session option, click the View Roster icon in the Options column for the session option.
Edits made to a parent session do not affect the associated session options and vice versa.
Clicking the Copy icon in the Options column for a parent session creates a new parent session. Clicking the Copy icon for a session option creates a new session option within the associated parent session.
Canceling a parent session that has at least one session option also cancels the session option. Clicking the Cancel Session icon in the Options column opens a pop-up that indicates canceling the parent session also cancels any associated session options.
A session option can be deleted by clicking the Cancel Session icon in Options column.
