Content Buttons are the gates to your Event! With them, you can manage how to display your Event content. As there are several types of Content Buttons in Swapcard, here you will learn about the Live Session Content Button.

If you need to, you can learn more about the basics of Content Buttons with this article: Setting up Content Buttons.


Displays the ongoing Session, with auto-follow enabled.

Use case

Attendees who click on the Live Session Content Button, will be redirected to the ongoing Session, and once said Session ends, the next one – based on the Event Schedule and Sessions assigned to that particular Content Button – will automatically play (auto-follow).

This is ideal for Virtual and Hybrid Events. You can have multiple Live session Content Buttons if your event has simultaneous live sessions.


You can set up a Button background image (or a button color instead) and a Page background image.



If you'd like this Content Button to redirect to a certain section of the content, customize the data conditions to only include content with the relevant values for one or more fields.If several fields are selected, it will display the content if at least one condition matches (logical operator between fields is "OR", and not "AND", but if you restrict the view to some Session formats, Sessions with other formats won't be displayed).

Display preferences

You can decide how to display the content (Sessions) under the Content Button. To display all Sessions as a list including a search bar and Filters, select "List" or "Grid" mode. To automatically redirect to the ongoing Session page, select "Live" mode (ideal for hybrid and virtual events).


You can decide which Group(s) of Participants can see the Content Button, and whether you want to make it visible to unregistered Guests (publicly)

Attendees' perspective

As an attendee, upon logging in, will find the Live Session Content Button prominently displayed. By clicking on it, you'll be redirected to the ongoing session.
