All SUUSI 2020 events will be accessed through an online platform called Whova, so let’s start with directions for how to get there. You have two choices for using Whova:
- Download the app for your smartphone or tablet.
- Access Whova through the web using your laptop or desktop computer.
Which one should you choose? The app has extra social features that make it easy to interact with other SUUSI attendees, and if you sign up on the web you’ll get an email from Whova encouraging you to use the app instead. However, no matter which option you pick you’ll be able to attend all official SUUSI events.
What will you be able to do in Whova?
- View all scheduled SUUSI activities and select the ones you want to attend
- Access workshops, worship services, concerts, dances, age group activities, and other SUUSI events with a single click
- Set up virtual meet-ups to chat with old friends or make new ones
- Participate in Discussion Topics in the Community Board
- Receive updates such as last minute cancellations
- Get presentation documents and slides (if used in a workshop or other event you’re attending)
Create your account: Whether you download the app or use the web link, you’ll be asked to create an account. It is very important to use the same email that you used in SOLIS when you registered, so that you’ll be recognized as belonging to SUUSI. Do not use the option to “sign in with Facebook” or other social media platforms.
Who needs an account? Every person in your family who will be attending events on their own should make their own Whova account.
Examples: Jill and Karen registered in SOLIS as a family group. They plan to attend the concerts and worship services together, but there are some workshops that Jill is signed up for and others that Karen is signed up for. Jill and Karen should each have their own Whova account.
Steve and Catherine registered in SOLIS as a family group with their six-year-old Alex. Alex doesn’t have an email address and doesn’t use the computer independently. Alex can attend Youth activities at Virtual SUUSI through either parent’s Whova account.
The Smith family only plans to attend worship services and concerts at Virtual SUUSI. There will never be a time that two members of the family want to do different things at the same time, and no one is signed up for limited-access activities like workshops or teen programming. The Smith family can use one Whova account, registered to one of the adults.
