When organizing an event and managing your content, you may find that you have speakers that you may not have fully vetted yet, and you do not wish to extend a speaker invitation or assign them to a session just yet. The Pending Speaker Functionality allows you to enter these individuals without the need to continuously filter and manually remove individuals as you send out speaker invites leading up to your event.
Pending speaker is often used in conjunction with Hubb's "Call For Papers" product.
Please note that if "Enable Pending Speaker" is toggled to on, users with ONLY the speaker role MUST be associated to an Accepted Session in order to be invited and gain access to Hubb. There is no way to override this on a per-user basis if this setting is toggled to on.
