  • 1.  Changing Speaker Category Order

    Posted 01-15-2021 04:12
    I have my speaker page sorted by category - Moderator, Featured Speakers, and Panelists.   When I toggle on this option it automatically sorts them in an order I didn't get to set.

    I need to change the category order to Featured Speakers, Panelists, and Moderators.   

    Is there any way to do this?

    Thank you!

    As far as I can tell there is no way to manually reorder speaker categories. Absurdly, Keynote Speaker will appear below the default speaker category in the Flex site. 

    My workaround was to assign regular speakers the panelist category (which of course could be renamed to whatever). But this should absolutely be a feature within the speakers widget.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong Cvent.

    Hi - this one took me some time to figure out too, but you can set them up through the speaker list!

    Go to Speakers > Speaker List, then click on Actions > Set Order at the top right. You can drag and drop the speakers in the order you want them to appear (why they can't be defaulted to last name alphabetical is beyond me!), and then at the bottom, you can drag and drop the categories in the order you want them to appear.
