Attributes & Relationships

The table below explains many of the Event Speaker attributes used by Adxstudio Portals. It is important to note that the way in which many of the content/display-oriented attributes are rendered is controlled by the Page Template used, and thus by the portal developer.

Name The name of the speaker.
Website The associated website.
Contact The CRM Contact record associated with the speaker.
Description Information about the speaker.
URL  A path to an online resourse, typically the speaker's blog, personal website, or corporate website.
Publishing State 

The current publishing workflow state of the event speaker record, which may dictate whether or not the event speaker is visible on the site. See Publishing States. The most common use of this feature is to provide "published/draft" control over content.

Users with content management permissions may be granted the ability to use "Preview Mode", which allows these users to see ("preview") unpublished content.
