  4. Enter the attendee’s third party email address.
  5. For Account Activation, select from the drop down list depending on what is appropriate for your conference.
  6. For Expires After, you can select from 1 day up to 2 weeks. Keep this in mind when setting the account activation and consider the dates for the conference.

    Note

    If the access expires during the conference, another account will need to be generated.
