I can’t see the afternoon schedule on the mobile app
It won’t be available until 12:15. After that, if there is a problem, people need to make sure that they have closed/backed out of the Guidebook app and then open it and they will be asked if they want to do an update. The afternoon schedule should be viewable after doing that update. MUST close the app first to get the update message.
How can I find out whether my session got selected for the afternoon?
Go to the Program Desk (by voting area) OR scan the afternoon sessions on your mobile app OR scan the afternoon session printout.
