Adding breaks to schedule

  • Updated


Breaks are useful to add to your schedule so that your attendees can easily plan their day. Adding a break simply blocks out that period of time on your schedule. 


  • When adding a new schedule segment where a break exists, the break will be removed from the schedule automatically
  • When trying to add a break where a segment already exists, you will be shown an error. You will need to remove the existing segment or changed the time of the proposed break to continue.


To add a break to your schedule, go to Event Dashboard > Venue > Schedule in a multi-track event or Event Dashboard > Setup > Schedule in a Webinar event. Here you can use the table or calendar view.

  • In Table view, your schedule is presented in the table format.

    1. Select Table from the toggle at the top of the page.
    2. Locate a schedule segment you'd like to edit or add a new one by clicking + Quick add new.
    3. In the Segment Type field, select Break.

  • In Calendar view, your schedule is displayed in the daily schedule format.

    1. Select Calendar from the toggle at the top of the page. 
    2. To a new segment, click + Add to Schedule. To edit an existing segment, click on it directly or click on the Menu icon ••• and select Edit.

    3. In the segment settings, under Segment type, select Break.

    4. Once ready, click Add to schedule or Save.

Once a break is added to your schedule it will be displayed on the Reception page of your event, as well as in the Calendar modal that can be accessed from the header. Attendees will not be able to add the scheduled break to their agendas.
