HOW TO USE HOPIN – FPS 2020
Welcome to the Flexible Power Symposium 2020: a Virtual Experience! This year’s event is hosted on Hopin, an online event platform designed to create engaging events experiences.
1. Access Hopin
Hopin works best on the latest version of Google Chrome and on Mozilla Firefox. No need to download additional software.
Hopin also works on mobile although we recommend using your computer for a better experience.
2. Creating your profile
Put your job title/position and company in the “headline” field. Link to your website and social media accounts.
3. Event navigation
On the right, you see 3 main tabs: Chat, Polls, and People.
To minimize this, click on the arrow at the top right beside the timer.
A red dot indicates a new message or poll. (Figure 2)
Add sessions to your calendar: [Reception]
see the available sessions for that time and date.
To access a session, click on its title.
You will be directed to the session area as you wait for it to start.
New sessions will appear at the bottom of the “Sessions” page during transitions. Make sure to scroll down or refresh the page at that time.
7. Networking feature
To start networking, click “Ready” and you will be randomly matched to another participant: chat with that person for 3 minutes. After that, a “connect” button will appear: click on it to add that person to your “connections”, within your Hopin profile, so you can follow up later.
8. Video and Audio Troubleshooting
If you are unable to select your AV options, you probably need to give browser permissions for Hopin to access your AV devices.
