For many of you, this year’s Business Forum will not be your first partnering rodeo. However, for all of you, it will be your first opportunity to use the new “Calendar” section in BIO’s One-on-One Partnering System.
Here’s the unofficial guide to optimizing your experience to ensure that you’re getting the meetings that you need.
1) Update your availability – whether you elect to use the new “Calendar” section of the older “update your availability” link, both will allow you to select which times you want to be eligible for a BIO 1×1 meeting.
2) Add some notes – go into the new “Calendar” and add in up to two notes per time period. This will allow participants to include programming elements, lunches, and meetings outside the partnering system to reside in one concise schedule. Also, none of these notes are able to be viewed from those outside your company.
Let us know what you think, and let us know if you have any questions.
