Push Notifications can now be sent to attendees within the Virtual Event Hub.
From your admin console, you can create and send push notifications by ticket type. You can also schedule the notifications in advance or send them immediately. Manage push notifications for your event via Send Push Notifications in the Engage tab of the Admin Console. Learn more about push notifications here.
To help increase engagement, we’ve added the ability to credit raffle tickets to attendees when they complete a gamification challenge. With this tool, your attendees can win raffle tickets and submit them to any items you add to your raffle. Once an attendee completes a challenge, their account will be credited with the raffle tickets. The number of raffle tickets per challenge is customizable, and you can add as many or as few items to the raffle as you’d like! You can enable the raffle module in the Admin Console via Settings > Billing > Raffle.
Attendees can view their progress and rewards via the My Rewards button at the top of the leaderboard.
Gamification points can now be accrued when an attendee watches a session recording.
Once authenticated, attendee information can be matched with an existing record or created as new in Marketo, HubSpot, and Salesforce. To locate and configure these integrations, navigate to your organizer profile, then click the Integrations tab.
Under your Manage Attendee Status settings, enable Attendee Access, select a ticket type, and click Apply. A “Speaker Registration Order” will be generated, and your speaker will have attendee access to the Virtual Event Hub.
This is available for free ticket types. Any paid ticket types will need to follow the usual registration process under “Add Attendees” or via the Event Landing Page.
Check the box next to the session(s) and apply any of these changes via the menu at the top of the Agenda tab.
You can enter a stylized description for your raffle page in the Raffle Settings. The description is displayed above the raffle’s status and items. This is a great opportunity to thank your sponsors and donors!
Organizers can view the total number of connections made by an attendee and whether those connections originated from scheduled networking sessions or independently in the Virtual Event Hub.
Videos and live streams are now supported in the Lobby and Expo Hall banners.
You can activate the live stream by navigating to your Event Website > Virtual Event Hub > Lobby tab of the admin console.
The Expo Hall live stream can be accessed in Exhibitors & Sponsors > Settings > Expo Settings > Enable Live Stream. These streams are supported through direct upload or via RTMP.
Exhibitor Booths now have polling and Q&A ability!
Exhibitors now have the ability to poll their booth visitors and visitors can now ask questions through the Q&A tool. Data from these modules will be available in the organizer’s exhibitor report.
Even more updates:
To make the Q&A private by default, you can enable Make Q&A Private in the Manage Session Interactivity portion of the session settings. This will allow you and/or your speaker to audit and publish any incoming questions.
Questions can be published for attendees through Answer Live and Publish and Type Answer*. Questions can be discarded and will remain private via Dismiss Question.
*You will have the option to send your written answer privately or publish it for all attendees.
Until your event is published, you will see a red exclamation mark next to the Dashboard tab of your admin console. Events must be published to begin registration, so this is there as a reminder to publish when you’re ready!
