Use Authors to identify and associate an individual with their publication allowing for promotion and recognition. Engineered primarily for educational and academic events, this new component showcases authors and provides linking capabilities to their documents and sessions.
The Authors component has no prerequisites. However, in order to take advantage of its full capabilities, it is best to use it in conjunction with the Documents and Schedule components.
What happens in the app
Touching the Authors icon in the main menu opens the Authors screen, which lists all authors in alphabetical order by last name and displays their title, and image.
Touching a listed author opens the author's Details screen. This screen displays profile information including full name, title, organisation, a short biography, contact information, and photo. It will also display any sessions they are assigned to as a speaker as well as a list of their uploaded publications. Touching a listed session or document will open the Details screen for that item.
