Here are some frequently asked questions about the tables feature on Symposium, and our answers!

Q: Can a participant look at other parts of the event while they are participating in a Tables session?

A: They can certainly open a new tab or browser window to simultaneously look at other content. If they leave the table to look at other content, however, they may lose their spot if someone else joins that table.

Q: Can I link my own Zoom or other video conferencing platform to a table instead of using Symposium’s inbuilt video conferencing capabilities?

A: No, an external platform cannot be linked to a table. The video conferencing is hosted directly on Symposium.

Q: Do my participants need to download an application to use Symposium’s video conferencing?

A: No, the video conferencing takes place directly on our platform within the browser.

Q: Are there any technological requirements for this feature? 

A: The feature is compatible with the latest versions of desktop Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge. On iPhones and iPads, the device must have iOS 13.0 or a newer version for Safari and iOS 14.0 and higher version for Chrome. On Android phones/tablets, the device must have Android 6.0 or a newer version for Chrome.


In most cases, we recommend that users use Safari or Chrome as Symposium is fully optimized for both those browsers.
