FAQ - Preseria Web Application¶
The answers to your important Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Preseria Web application.
When a speaker uploads her presentation to the system is it possible to be notified by email? Or must I go into the system to check this ?¶
Not yet! We are working on it. Currently you must log into the system to check it.
Can you brand the web-app's user interface ?¶
Not currently, but we are happy to talk to you and get your opinion on how this feature would ideally work for you. We might decide to implement this in a future version. What you can brand is the email invitation, and its email banner image, that goes out to the presenters when invited to upload.
Can you enforce a hard deadline on presentation uploads for speakers ?¶
No, but we are working on it! Currently, we recommend communicating (in the email invitation from Preseria and/or on the conference website) a deadline for the upload of the final version of speakers' presentations.
Can you add text in the guideline text in the boxes to the right, when logged in as a speaker ?¶
Yes! Use the "Set Deadline" button on a Conference or inside a Session to set deadlines that prevent presenters from making changes to their presentation after a certain date and time.
If someone has broken links, non-standard fonts that are not embedded or media using proprietary codecs in their PowerPoint that we may not have on our presentation computers, is Preseria able to recognize this and notify the speaker / organizer?¶
Not yet, but we are working on it! We try to avoid this altogether by encouraging people to embed media & fonts and optimize their PowerPoints for compatibility. We also recommend that you include a couple of sentences about this in your email invitation templates. Our default template provides a good starting point. Our goal is to soon provide an instant warning to the presenters when they upload a PowerPoint that's missing videos, fonts or has other issues.
