Manage Conference Menu

Your inVision project is configured using the Manage Conference option within the Settings menu.

This will bring you to the Manage Conference settings page, which has multiple tabs to set different configuration settings, including:

  • General Settings - such as the name and start date of the conference, notifications, enabling functionality such as public links and self-registration.

  • Email - to define email templates and subscriptions.

  • Manage Data - to manage project data, such as categories, team views, and project links. As well as conference specific data such as event groups, date labels and nicknames.

  • Manage Users - to create and manage users and invitation requests.

General Settings

The general settings tab allows you to set up some of the key items for your conference.

  • Conference Settings - Create the name, short name, start/end dates, and timezone of your conference. These are important for the schedule functionality to work correctly.

  • Login from Another Device - This setting creates a notification on the conference home page to simplify logins from a user's mobile device.

  • Document Upload Notification - Enter an email address of the person that should receive notifications when a user uploads a new document.

  • "NEW" Badges - Set the number of days the system will use to highlight new items on the project homepage.

  • Public Links - Enable or disable public links, and set when those links expire.

  • Registration - Enable or disable self-registration for specific email domains. NOTE: the whitelist needs to be setup by emailing [email protected].


The Email tab allows you to define the project lead, default email settings, email templates, and email subscription lists.

  • Default Welcome Emails - Use the system defaults, or customize the different templates sent to new users when they are added to the conference.

Manage Data

The Manage Data tab allows you to set key project and conference data.

  • Categories - Define Categories for your conference posts and reorder them as needed.

  • Key Links - If key links are added, a Key Links widget will be shown at the top right of the conference home page.
