Thanks for the questions and for the tip on the video, that’s smart indeed
I really appreciate the feedback and the questions, that’s actually what I was looking for!
Regarding your question:
2) You can assign each block of your session to one of the facilitators of the session, but besides that, you can freely record information in any field in the structure we have. (The main planner interface has two main text columns for each block. They are labelled as Description and Additional information, but you can for example just use one of the columns for yourself, and the other one for your co-facilitator. Nonetheless, in Excel for sure you can have more flexibility with setting up your own template, so there are cases when that suits better.)
Thanks for the suggestion on breakout groups, it’s actually on our roadmap for 2018
There are different printout templates, including one with all the details, and some with less information (e.g. just with the block titles, timing and short description), and some of our users use it to create printouts for participants vs. printouts for themselves as facilitators. But I think there might be room for improvement, depending what you’d need exactly.
It’s an interesting point regarding an event/session-based pricing, it’s something might be worthy to explore further in the future. Indeed, the paid plans are mostly targeted for people who regularly run workshops / training / design sessions - and in that scheme, the people who need the extra features beyond the free plan (collaboration, branding, multi-day agendas, Word export) usually buy a one or two months subscription if they only need it for an event.
But I do see a point why it can be useful to offer the extra features on an event basis.
You are certainly more than welcome to try SessionLab yourself, and I’d love to hear if you have further feedback!
