The PIUG Meeting App

Use the meeting app to manage your experience at the PIUG 2017 Annual Conference! Plan your conference schedule on your mobile device or use the online version. Connect with attendees and sponsors via the app.

We’re launching the app in advance to help you start planning your personalized schedule. The app will be updated in real time, so be sure to close out of it after each use and to check back regularly for new sponsors and exhibitors, tools, an interactive game, and much more!

Building your PIUG 2017 Schedule

  1. Download the app or view the web-based version of the app.
  2. Log in and record your Confirmation Code for future use. Please note that you must be logged in to personalize your schedule.
  3. From your mobile device or the web-based version, navigate to the "Schedule" icon.
  4. For those using the app on a mobile device: Add sessions to your personalized schedule by holding the bookmark icon next to an item on the schedule. These bookmarked sessions will be saved in "My Schedule/Bookmarks."

  5. For those using the web-based version: Add sessions to your personalized schedule by expanding the session and selecting "Add." These added items will be saved in "My Schedule."

Tips for Using the App

Use "Session Search by Keywords" to explore educational sessions according to your learning needs or thematic focus. In the "Schedule" section of the app, you’ll be able to zero in on sessions categorized by a specified content level, Learning Stream, or co-hosting unit.

Close out of the app after each use and watch for app updates to get the most up-to-date content! Because the app will be updated in real time, so be sure to close out of it completely after each use so that if there are updates, it can refresh. If the app simply remains open on your device, any changes that have been made to it in the meantime will not show up on your device. If you’re having any challenges with your app, close out of it completely, then reopen it to ensure updates go through and that you are viewing the most up-to-date information.
