Assign the Dress Rehearsal Attribute to Agenda Sessions

- Under the Members tab, add all participants needed and event administrators to the session. This will make the dress rehearsal show under their "My Agenda" only.
- They can then find it under "My Agenda"
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not select the "This is a dress rehearsal; it will only appear on the calendar of event speakers" checkbox under Advanced for any dress rehearsal sessions after completing these steps.
