Building a Microsoft Ignite Schedule

In my previous blog post, I provided a set of guidelines for selecting conference sessions when attending events like Microsoft Ignite.

Now, it’s time to build your schedule in the MyIgnite portal for Microsoft Ignite. This can take some time so set aside an hour for this, and plan to revisit it as you refine your goals for Ignite. To make this easier to follow (and save some keystrokes), I created a hands-on demo to walk you through session scheduling through the MyIgnite portal. Check it out below:

For those who didn’t have time for the video, here’s the quick take:

  • Check out the learning paths for curated session scheduling based around job roles.
  • Use granular filtering by day, session type, and topic so it is easier to browse the list of sessions.
  • Use Trip Report for a Word document with all your scheduled sessions. This is great for providing conference information back to your organization, or for your own personal record.

Whether watching in Orlando or from Home, make sure you build out your schedule so you achieve your goals for the conference.
