Ch9 Events is powered by the EventBoard platform. To sync your agenda with the Channel 9 website, you must create a new EventBoard account on the device.
In Windows 8, open the Settings charm by swiping in from the right and picking settings or by hitting (Windows logo key +I) and then picking Account. On all other platforms, locate and tap the settings button at the bottom of the main conference list to create a new account.
After creating an account, you will be sent a verification email from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not see it in a few minutes please check your junk mail. Follow the link in the email to verify your account. After clicking the link in the email, your account will be created.
Link your new EventBoard account to your Channel 9 account here: http://channel9.msdn.com/linkaccount.
Linking your accounts will enable the syncing of your agenda with the Channel 9 website.
Return to the Ch9 Events settings screen and login with your verified account credentials (from step 3). Choose “I already have an account” (iOS, Android) or “Use Existing Account”. (Windows Phone and Windows 8)
Users of Windows Phone and Windows 8 should try pinning their favorite events to their home screens for direct access.
If your event is collecting feedback, you will see a feedback button in the details of each session after that session has started. The feedback button is only enabled if you are logged in and the session has started.
A process is running in the background that will detect new changes and empower the refresh. You can wait a few minutes and try to refresh again, or if you want to force an immediate update, return to the conference list and refresh the list first. This will ensure you have all the latest event options. Now enter the event and refresh from the bottom app bar. New session information should now be available.
After linking your account, it may take several minutes before your agenda is collected from the Channel 9 Events website. If you do not want to wait, logging out of the Ch9 Events app and logging back in will download your agenda immediately.
To allow Ch9 Events to work offline, the entire schedule is downloaded to your device and cached for offline viewing. When new schedule changes are detected, the refresh button in the upper right hand corner of the session list will glow and pulse, encouraging you to grab the latest changes. You can tap this refresh button at anytime to ensure that you have the latest information. (On Windows 8, the refresh button is in the bottom app bar.)
If your event is collecting session feedback, tap the session listing to view the session’s details. A feedback button can be found here once a session has started.
The feedback button is invisible or disabled until a session has started and you must be logged in to the application to enable the feedback option.
The agenda you created in the online schedule will appear in the “My Agenda” section of EventBoard. Sessions you add or remove from your agenda in EventBoard will be added or removed from your schedule on the website.
Open a session’s details and tap the heart icon in the upper right hand corner to add or remove it from your agenda. A red heart means the item has been added.
While viewing the session list, select the "My Agenda" option in the bottom app bar. To return to the full list of sessions, select "Show All" in the bottom app bar.
No. If you can already logon to the Ch9 Events app with an existing EventBoard account, you only need to link that email address here: http://channel9.msdn.com/linkaccount
Open EventBoard and reveal the charms bar on the right, then select the Settings charm. From there, select "Account".
