Forum 76 Help Guide

Leaderboard Forum 76 Banner

The Vertical Flight Society's 76th Annual Forum & Technology Display will be held online this year on Oct. 5–8, with several special events held in advance of the official Forum 76 week. Registrants are encouraged to log in to the event page, set up their profile and plan their itinerary as soon as possible.

We encourage our registrants to try these general troubleshooting tips to minimize technical issues:

• Use Chrome or Firefox
• Disconnect from VPN
• If you are in the office, try another network (some offices have robust firewalls that will block video and video chat)
• If your office has a firewall, have your IT staff make sure that you can access streaming audio / video
• Clear your web browser history and cache
• Close any other tabs that may be using a lot of bandwidth
• If you are at home, make sure you are not also using streaming services like Netflix, etc. that could impact your available bandwidth
• Check your internet connection
• Use a hard wired internet connection if possible
• If you have to use WIFI, make sure you are close to the WIFI device
• For video chat, make sure no other programs are accessing your camera/audio (e.g., Zoom)
• All of the virtual webinar sessions use GoToWebinar. If you have never participated in a VFS virtual webinar before (on that same computer), set up your computer in advance: you should run a system check to make sure that your computer will work and get the web browser plugin installed.

Below are answers to some commonly asked questions that may help facilitate this process. If you have a problem during the event and you’ve used the tips below but still have an issue and you need immediate help, there are “emergency” contacts at the bottom.

How do I attend the Technical Briefings?

The technical briefings are held in their designated booth, within the representative's chatroom. Within the booth, click on "Video Chat", find the video chat representative, and click on "Launch Video Chat" during the time slot of their briefing.

How do I create a personal itinerary ("My Schedule")?

First-time users: You are welcome to browse the program, but you will not be able to create a personalized "My Schedule" until you are logged in with your VFS member account.

Adding Favorites and creating a My Schedule
Once you are logged in, you can select the star to the right of the session title. Selecting the star allows you to add the session to your itinerary. Once added, you have the ability to view your selected session in the “My Schedule” portion of your profile, manage your favorites and even add comments about the session.

Adding Comments
To add an annotation, you will need to be logged in to your profile. Once you have favorited a session, you can select the favorited session from the search option or select within the “My Schedule” section of your profile. Simply click on the gray square next to the star and add a comment. Once you have added your details the square will turn blue.

View Session Details
Select the title of a session in your search results to open a pop-up box that provides the complete information for that session. You can read the description, speaker bios, and view the learning objectives (if provided). If you decide you would like to add a particular session to your personal itinerary, you may do so by selecting the star next to the title. This turns the session to a "Favorite” and will be designated as a session to add to your personal itinerary.
