Questions? We have answers.

  • Industry-specific social events / receptions

Is there a discount for international attendees?

Yes. To help offset the high cost of traveling internationally, all non-U.S. registrants receive a 20 percent discount off the current pricing. The discount is automatically applied at registration.

The discount only applies to the conference registration fee and is not applicable toward guest fees, hotel, airfare, etc. All attendees are responsible for their hotel and transportation costs.

Can I use my Training/Reseller Credits to pay for my registration costs?

Yes. If you have training/reseller credits that you would like to use, please contact the registration manager at CommunityLIVE@hyland.com for assistance on applying those credits to your balance due.

Are there any other discounts available?

Additional discounts may be combined if eligible.

Alumni — Save $200 if you attended CommunityLIVE 2014-2018, or Inspire 2017. The discount will be automatically applied and is nontransferable.

Group 3+** — Save $200 per person with three (3) or more paid* attendees from the same organization when signing up multiple attendees concurrently.

Please note that the 3+ group discount will not automatically be applied if more people from your organization register separately.

Group 10+*** — Save $400 per customer when registering ten or more paid* attendees at the same time for the same conference pass type (CommunityLIVE Five, CommunityLIVE, or Technical Training). Partners are not eligible for 10+ discount.

International — Attendees from non-U.S. countries save 20 percent off registration fees. The discount is automatically applied at registration.

Please contact us at CommunityLIVE@Hyland.com for more assistance on registering group members separately.

*All attendees counted toward the group discount must provide payment to be eligible. Attendees using free or greatly reduced courtesy passes will not count toward either group registration discount program.

**Please note: If you are registering multiple people online, in order for the automatic discount to work properly, all registrants must have the same admission item. If not, please contact CommunityLIVE@Hyland.com for a manual code to register everyone separately.

***Please note: Customers that plan to send 10 or more paying attendees to CommunityLIVE can request a discount code that they can apply during checkout. This discount is not available without a code. Please contact CommunityLIVE@Hyland.com for your manual code. Partners are not eligible for this discount.

Attendees are responsible for ensuring discounts are added. If you feel you are not receiving all eligible discounts, please contact us for review at CommunityLIVE@Hyland.com

What if I qualify for more than one discount? Can I have both?

Yes. Let's say you attended our conference in 2016 and you are attending with two additional people from your organization this year. You will save a total of $400 on your registration - $200 for the alumni discount and $200 for each group member that qualifies. Of course, if the other two folks from your organization also attended CommunityLIVE sometime in 2014-2018, or Inspire 2017, they'll qualify for that alumni discount as well!

When is the last day I can register for the conference?

Online registrations are accepted until 11:59 p.m., Saturday, September 14. On-site registration at the Huntington Convention Center begins at 7:00 a.m., Sunday, September 15.

Please note: On-site registration prices are more expensive than early bird or advanced conference rates, so make sure you book early!

What are the hours for the conference's on-site registration desk?

The registration desk, located in the concourse level of the Huntington Convention Center will be open beginning Sunday, September 15 for attendees to check in and pick up conference materials. The registration desk will be staffed throughout the conference as follows:

  • Monday - Wednesday 8:00 a.m. - 5:15 p.m.
  • Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
I missed the online registration deadline. Where can I register on-site?

Attendees will be able to register on-site using a credit card at the conference registration desk located in the concourse level of the Huntington Convention Center.

Please note: In order to receive your conference badge, payment must be processed on-site.

Can prospective customers attend the conference?

Of course! CommunityLIVE is the perfect opportunity to see how Hyland products and solutions work in a variety of settings and applications while meeting and talking with users and employees to get the "inside scoop." Please work directly with your account manager to complete the registration form.

Am I automatically registered for the conference if I received an invitation?

No. You still need to register. Please visit the Registration page to begin!

Are there restrictions for Government / Public Sector Employees?

There may be food, refreshments and other items available at no additional charge during the event. It is the responsibility of all government or public sector employees, officials or their representatives to confirm that their attendance at this event is in compliance with all applicable statute, laws, regulations, and your employer’s policies related to gifts, meals, entertainment and ethics. By attending this event, you certify that your employer has approved your attendance at this event and that you will abide by all such laws and policies in connection with your participation.

Sessions & training classes

Will there be Perceptive-related content or sessions at CommunityLIVE? Do I need to pre-register for classes?

Pre-registration is only required for the Advanced Hands-on Training classes on Sunday and Monday, due to limited computer availability. You will select those classes on the registration form. Attendees do not need to pre-select classes held during the main conference, Tuesday through Thursday; however, you may wish to build your personal agenda to plan your week using the conference mobile app, available a few weeks before the event.

Can I renew my certifications this year? If yes, how?

Yes. We offer the following re-certifications at CommunityLIVE:

  • System Administrator (OCSA)
  • Advanced System Administrator (OCASA)
  • Workflow Administrator (OCWA)
  • Advanced Workflow Administrator (OCAWA)
  • WorkView (OCWV)

For OnBase Certified System Administrators and Advanced System Administrators: Attend the System Administration re-certification course offered on Sunday or Monday.

For OnBase Certified Workflow Administrators and OnBase Certified Advanced Workflow Administrators: Attend courses on Sunday and Monday training that are relevant to your Workflow solution. Because many components are related to Workflow, individuals can attend any two sessions during Sunday and Monday to renew their certification.

For OnBase WorkView Certification: Attend any courses at Sunday and Monday training that are relevant to your WorkView solution. Because many components are related to WorkView, individuals can attend any two sessions during Sunday and Monday to renew their certification.

What is the format (intended audience, duration, overview or actual hands-on training, prerequisite requirements, certification tests) for the Hands-on Technical Training sessions on Sunday and Monday?

Sunday and Monday are split in to morning and afternoon sessions - so each attendee would attend two classes on Sunday and two classes on Monday. Typically, the attendees are technical and have some OnBase experience, although there are sessions intended for beginners. There will be about 14 tracks to choose from each day. Classes held Sunday and Monday are 3.5 hours in length.

How do training sessions at CommunityLIVE differ from those at TechQuest?

TechQuest doesn't offer the same number of classes. TechQuest typically has about 120 technical attendees — so the classes are smaller. CommunityLIVE will have several hundred people in attendance Sunday and Monday and over 2,000 attendees Tuesday through Thursday.

Which training sessions will be presented during the conference sessions at the main conference Tuesday through Thursday? How might that format and content differ from the Hands-on Technical Training sessions?

Tuesday through Thursday at CommunityLIVE is not considered training — the format consists of fast-paced, high-level presentations. There ARE self-paced, hands-on labs available all day, but they are not true classes. Hands-on Technical Training on Sunday and Monday is — with the exception of two tracks — hands-on, instructor-led training.

How many of the morning sessions can I attend each day?

Sunday and Monday Hands-on Technical Training: There is one morning and one afternoon session, each about 3.5 hours in length.

Tuesday - Thursday: There will be multiple sessions, and each session is about 45 minutes in length.

How can I learn more about something I heard in classes or sessions?

We'll have 40-plus Expert Stations in CommunityCENTRAL located in Exhibit Hall A of the Huntington Convention Center. Please visit the industry or solution station related to your question and a Hyland expert will work with you to ensure you have all the information you need.

Will I have access to the conference presentations?

Select sessions from CommunityLIVE will be available after the conference through Hyland Community.

How will customer presenters be chosen and notified?

We will notify customers via email to let them know if their presentation was selected. Selected presenters will receive a discount code upon notification.

I’m seeing acronyms like VOGUE, OSEG and PCAT on the session list. What do these mean?

These are User Groups that you are welcome to join to network with fellow users based on your industry or role. A VOGUE is a Vertical OnBase Group of User Experts. There are VOGUEs for the following industries: Healthcare, Higher Education, Insurance, Government, Financial Services and Credit Unions. OSEG is the OnBase Solutions Expert Group which is open to users in any industry, and particularly those interested in back office applications such as AP, AR and HR. PCAT is the Perceptive Client Advisory Team comprised of Perceptive Content users, which are mostly Higher Education-focused, but all are welcome.
