Why can’t I type a question or comment in the chat during a speaker’s talk?
The chat area in the session room will be used for important links and announcements to help guide participants through the conference. When you join the session room, click the chat icon in the upper left so you can see the messages we post! As a viewer, you are muted and cannot post your own comments in the chat. All conversation will be happening in Slack, the Virtual Networking Room, and the Q&A rooms.
Will there be a chance for Q&A with speakers?
Speakers will be available after their talks for short Q&A discussions in separate video chats – those links will be given during the speaker’s talk.
Can I listen to talks in the session room while I am also in the Virtual Networking Room or a speaker Q&A room?
You can use a separate device to run one of the rooms if you wish to be in both places at once. But we’ll also be recording the talks and panels so you can listen later.
What’s the difference between the Virtual Networking Room and a speaker Q&A room?
Think of it like a “real” on-site conference. The Q&A rooms are like walking up to a speaker after their talk to ask a question or make a comment, while the Virtual Networking Room is a place to have “hallway conversations” with other attendees. Speakers might be there too, but it’s mainly for discussion, networking, and side discussions.
I’m having trouble accessing AgileGovLeaders on Slack. What’s wrong?
First make sure you have signed up for the AGL Slack team using this link:
If it says you have already been invited, you may need to check your inbox (spam folders, etc.) for the notification. You also may need to create a free Slack account if you haven’t used Slack before.
