RootsTech 2018 is Here! A Few Last Minute Tips

It's the day before RootsTech. If you are attending either in-person or remotely, there are a few things you should check off your to-do list if you haven't already.

  • Download the RootsTech app. Then read, "7 Ways the Mobile App Will Enhance Your RootsTech Experience."
  • Download or view the handouts for the sessions you're attending. See my instructions for this at the end of this post. 
  • Read "A Survival Guide to RootsTech 2018." It's short and has the critical things you need to know.
  • Drink lots of water. Seriously. It's dry here in Salt Lake City. Really dry. I'm from the Arizona desert and I think it's dry. In past years they've had water stations throughout the Salt Palace. Use them. You'll be glad you did. If you're attending remotely, drink water anyway. It's good for you.
  • Stay tuned in. I'll be posting throughout the conference.
  • Have fun!

How to download session handouts:

When you first open the session on the RootsTech app. This is what you will see. Scroll all the way to the bottom.

Tap on "Handout." Then tap on the session name. You will be presented with options to download the handout, email it, or take notes on the handout.
While we are at it. Be sure and rate the session. See the image below. Speakers are not paid and they put a ton of time and effort into their presentations. If you like the talk, give them the highest score. RootsTech gives speakers a "bonus" if enough attendees score them highly.
