This note details the new functionality included in release 1.0.306, released on Sunday 4 July 2020. There are several new features included in this release, plus several bug fixes:

Related Sessions

With this release, users will now be able to add up to 5 links to other sessions that an attendee may find useful. 

To add the links, a ‘Related Sessions’  link has been added to the section has been added to the Presentation Setting area. When clicked a pop-up will appear that enables you to select up to 5 related sessions. 

This is the link you also use to edit any existing Related Sessions which, usefully, can be amended at any time (whether the session is live or not) enabling you to address any event agenda changes.

Once a LIVE session is finished, an overlay will also appear with links to the sessions. If clicked, the audience will be taken directly to the session, by passing the event agenda.

This does not appear if the ‘Publish (Present To The End)’ option was used for the session.

Twitter

You can now include and switch to a Twitter wall in a Glisser session.  At the bottom of the Presentation Settings area on the right hand side is a ‘Social Media’ section. Switch the Twitter toggle to on and enter your hashtag (without the #).
