​Hello Partners!

 
The WPC Connect Session Scheduler is now live! The Session Scheduler will keep you on track during WPC by keeping all of your events, sessions and meetings in one convenient place. You can even export your session and meeting schedule from WPC Connect to your Outlook calendar. These tools ensure that you will be able to maximize your time and investment for attending WPC.
 
Everything at WPC is centered on accelerating our partnership. WPC Connect is the home for managing your conference schedule. You can schedule sessions now and download the content after the conference.
 
Here are a few guidelines to help you utilize the new tools:
  1. Access your My WPC Schedule with the same credentials you used to register for WPC. If you log in or sign up for WPC Connect with alternate credentials, you will not be able to access your My WPC Schedule. If you’ve forgotten your registration credentials, please reach out to our registration team at wwpartnerconference@microsoft.crgevents.com.
  2. Plan which sessions you want to attend. The Session Scheduler allows you to filter sessions by competency, partner type, customer segment and more. View your sessions and meetings in My WPC Schedule—and share sessions with colleagues who are also part of WPC Connect. Recommendations will help you find other sessions relevant to you—for example, if you’re new to WPC, you’ll be able to populate your calendar with sessions specifically for First Time Attendees (FTAs). 
  3. Schedule the meetings you need at the time and location of your choice. Request meetings with other attendees, use the meeting dashboard to accept and decline meetings and view meeting details.
  4. Ensure your profile is marked public. Having a public profile means that you appear in searches and that other attendees can request meetings with you. This is vital to successful networking at WPC.
  5. Export to your Outlook calendar. Manage your WPC schedule in one location by integrating it with your Outlook calendar. Changes you make in your My WPC Schedule will automatically populate to your WPC calendar in Outlook.
  6. Check out the WPC Connect tutorial videos. These videos contain detailed how-to information to walk you through all of the functionalities of WPC Connect.
It’s time to connect and plan—start your preparations early to make WPC 2014 your best investment of the year. Take advantage of the newly released Session Scheduler in WPC Connect to populate your calendar with sessions, schedule meetings and start your networking early. You can find an in-depth overview of all of WPC Connect’s functionality in the WPC Connect User Guide. And, be sure to let others know how you’re using WPC Connect with the hashtags #WPC14 and #mspartner.
 
We can’t wait to see you in Washington, D.C.!
