Build-On Tutorial:

iPad Schedule

Event Management Template: iPad Schedule

Overview

Tutorial summary

In this Build-On you will create a mobile event schedule interface, so your iPad users can help direct attendees to the proper sessions at an event. They will be able to choose from any event that has been marked as available for mobile use, and see the dates, times and locations of that event's sessions.

What to expect

When you’re done with this Build-On, your team will be able to:

  • Log in from the iPad and be taken directly to an event list
  • Select an event to view
  • See a list of sessions, and their start and end times, dates, and locations
  • Filter the session list by category or date, to more quickly find the session they’re looking for
