Only just installed it and after initial sync, it now repeatedly pops up with the same error as you are seeing

Not sure if i'm facing the same problem but my (ios) app constantly displayes "the token used for this request had expired". Any idea what's causing this annoying error?

Yes, I'm seeing that too. Constant connection errors.

It hasn't sync'd for me since 9/15.

Hi all,

Last year I used the Ignite app a lot, in my preparation. When will the 2016 app be updated to 2017? Or will there be a new app released?


Thanks, Mike

Seems the iPhone app will only accept LinkedIn or Microsoft Account. What if we registered with our Office 365 Account?

Is there a map, or layout available for Ignite?

I downloaded a copy of the OCCC floor plan, and I've seen a couple of vendors post map snippets of their location, but I'm looking for something more complete.

Same here! Has anyone found out any information about if we can buy these at the event?

Make your rounds on the expo floor and talk to your vendors. There are multiple vendors that leave early and hence wont use their pass.
I am in the same boat as everyone else on this thread. If you or someone you know no longer needs their companion pass, please let me know. I will buy it from you. Thank ... Read More
Think we need to create a meetup for those needing a pass like me and those who have one spare!

Same here. If anyone is willing to part with theirs, please contact me!

Great idea to have you as an official community reporter at Ignite. Stop by the SharePoint booth during the Welcome Reception and I'd be open to an interview.

Great advice for first-time attendees, Christian! Looking forward to seeing you at Ignite.

Congrats Christian. You will do a great job. See you in Orlando

Anyone know of a way to sort the 1500+ Ignite sessions by "date added?" The home page of "MyIgnite" lists some recent changes but not all. I'd like to be able to see newly added sessions without having to search through all of them every time. Thanks!
