Session Categories & Category Description

    HELP!

    I am trying to get the session category description to appear in my registration process. I show the category title, but no description in my flex setup. I have scrolled through each and every setting carefully to find where I can turn this visibility on. Am I just not seeing the setting or does it not exist?

    I have used the session categories with a description as I like how it has laid out the options for selection.

    Additionally, it appears that the session priority is also not taken into consideration in the ordering of the session under each category. Is this possible or does this also not exist in FLEX?

    TIA!

    Hi Lindsay,

    There's a toggle to display your session description. Registration process > build > session. Scroll down and you'll see Display options:

    As for setting your sessions by priority, continue to scroll down and you'll have the option to choose a number of options:
    Hope this helps!

    Does that show the category description though?

    To my knowledge, the category description will show as long as you set "category" as first in your order criteria.

    Hi Wendy-

    I don't need the session descriptions but the session category descriptions. Does this toggle affect both the session descriptions and the session category descriptions?

    I currently have the session category as the only sort filter. Time and Date are not showing. But I still don't have the description showing.

    Hi Lindsay,

    I totally misread your initial question and kept thinking about session instead of category description! Unfortunately, I do not know if there's a way to display the categorize description. Have you submitted a ticket to cvent for support? 

    Sorry I can't be of help! :(
