Digital Analytics Hub - Virtual Event FAQ
You must access the Zoom session via your personal agenda page (see direct link in our invitation email) so it is connected to the email address you used to register for the DA Hub.
Please do not wait for the event start before checking out your personal agenda page. We strongly recommend to check this NOW in order to avoid any problems at the time the conference starts.
For any questions upfront please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For urgent questions at the conference, please use the chat function at the bottom-left of this page.
We are using our website login for enabling Zoom's "Authenticated Profiles" to:
- increase the event's security
- To facilitate the automatic transfer of delegates from the main event session to the breakout rooms
To do so every delegate will see the screen below. It should be populated with your details (please ensure the email address is the same one that you used to register for the DA Hub.
If you cannot log in from this page then please go back to your personalized agenda page (see your invitation email, it requires your DA Hub password. If you haven’t created one simply click on Forgot my password and create one) and click on the chat function (bottom left) for a human operator to help you.
Please enter your first and last name as by your registration when joining the Zoom session!
This will display your name on your video-screen for others and makes a conversation much easier. It will also help Matthias to allocate you to your respective break-out room. Please don't use shortings, abbreviations or emails in your Zoom name label.
See the FAQ below this how to change your name - it will be important during the virtual session to indicate any break-out rooms you want to join.
All participants will be automatically transferred from the general session at the start of the event to their pre-allocated discussion rooms. If the automated transfer fails (it will for some - an issue with Zoom) then Matthias Bettag will transfer you manually whilst you are in the general session room. Alternatively you can reach out to him on the Zoom Chat or email him on email@example.com and he will attend to your request (this might take a few minutes).
If by any reason Zoom's auto-allocate function does not work, then do the followoing:
- Display all participants (hover Zoom on the bottom bar) so that all participants are displayed on the right
- Hover your own name and click >more>rename.
- Add a prefix with your huddle leader's first name to your name, e.g.: "Gary - YourFirstName YourLastName"
This will help us to fast allocate you. Once you are in your breakout session, please delete the prefix again.
Zoom’s web version doesn’t support Zoom's breakout rooms functionality. Therefore, you must use either the Zoom desktop app or mobile app, both available to download here. We recommend using the same email address you registered to the DA Hub (see Q5 below for why this is critical).
We strongly discourage using Zoom’s local dial-in numbers (currently Zoom only allows dial-in access for paying Zoom customers). However, if your Internet connection isn’t great and you're a paying Zoom customer, then you can use dial-in. But please be mindful that we’ll need to allocate you to your discussion room manually just before the discussions (which will cause a delay in you joining your allocated discussion)
Please log into your personalised agenda page here (requires your DA Hub password. If you haven’t created one simply click on Forgot my password and create one). You also find a direct link to your personalized agenda page in our email, subject: "Invite to the Virtual DA Hub - your personal agenda & next steps"). Click on the orange button to join the Zoom session again.
Alternatively, reach out to Matthias Bettag on the Zoom Chat or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will attend to your request (this might take a few minutes).
We strongly discourage changing discussions during the event (it requires manual intervention and could take a few minutes). However, if you strongly feel a discussion isn't for you then please reach out to Matthias Bettag on email@example.com and he will attend to your request (this might take a few minutes).
Sometimes you may experience a loud echo in the Zoom meeting. This is normally due to one of three causes:
- A participant has both the computer and telephone audio active
- Participants with computer or telephones speakers that are too close to each other
- Multiple computer with active audio in the same conference room
To solve each of these issues please consult this Zoom page.
