All of the Ignite presentation are being posted by Community Managers. This means that responses are directed to them. It would be better if they could post presentations like this on Behalf Of the actual presentors so that it was easier to directly engage the people responsible for the content.

This is definitely the intention for future events.  In the spirit of getting the content to you faster rather than waiting for speakers to join the community and posting the content themselves, we fasttracked this work by posting the content ourselves.  We have made an effort to @mention speakers who are already in the community so they are notified when there are questions to their content.

Thanks, that is good to know. Maybe the speaker registration process could include a step that ensures the accepted speaker is registered in this community.

Yes definitely!  We were 'building the plane as it was taking off' when it came to both Microsoft Ignite and Tech Summit content.  When we have more time to implement a process like this next year it will be a more seamless experience in the community.  The volume of content at Microsoft Ignite and Tech Summit combined with two weeks of time between the two events hasn't given us enough time to prepare let alone sleep.

Great idea - this year we posted all the ignite sessions from a single user which was used to upload the information and we asked speakers to regularly check their sessions.

 

I will feed this back for next years ignite.

Hi @Dean Gross ,

 

We are looking to do this for Microsoft Ignite 2019 - the issue is we need to ensure all speakers have registered for the Tech Community to do this. We are currently working on a shared auth experience with the events team which would make this much easier to ensure.

Dean,

 

Thanks for your contributions as always, having reviewed the idea its not something that is practical right now, speakers for the events change until fairly close to the event and session details are populated months out from the event. Once a session has been created its not then possible to change the author without deleting it and starting again.

 

This is something we would like to do and should the logistical or technical limitations change we will of course revisit it.
