There might be a situation when you want to share your session plan with someone who may not want to sign up to create their own SessionLab account in order to view or comment on the session. In this case, you can create a Visitor Link: this allows the session plan to be shared with people without having them create an account or log in to SessionLab. This option is available on all paid plans, including the Individual plan.

Once you navigate to the ‘share’ button at the top of the Session Planner, you’ll see the Visitor Link option on the second tab of the pop-up screen.

You can click on the 'Create visitor link' button to create a Visitor Link, which you can then copy and share.

You are able to deactivate the link by clicking on the 'Disable visitor link' button. The specific session link will always remain the same but in this manner you are able to control your session’s visibility.

Collaborators with the Visitor Link will be able to open and view the session including all its details and description. They will be able to leave comments on the agenda, and choose a name to assign to their remarks.

When you create a visitor link to your session, then the session does not become searchable publicly over the internet. The session can only be opened if someone has the link you created.

Commenting with the Visitor Link

With the Visitor Link, users can also leave comments on an agenda:

  1. When your client opens the session from the Visitor Link, they can choose any block they’d like to leave a comment on, or comment on the session overall

  2. Once they click on ‘Send’, they will have the option to log in to SessionLab, sign up, or simply add their name alongside their comment

  3. The comment will now be added to the session plan, with the name the client entered. In case you come back later to add more comments, your browser will remember you, so long as you’re using the same browser to access the session.
