Within the home screen of your event app you have the option of adding 5 different types of widgets.
These widget types include:
- Google Map
- Group Discussions
To add a widget simply access the Event App option of your Product list and select Home Screen. Click on the Add Widget button to the left to select the widget type.
Image widgets can be uploaded to your home screen and linked to either a website or a section within your event app. Image widgets have 3 available sizes with associated dimensions, more details about this can be found here. Note, that if you are editing a widget on the Home Screen you will need to first delete the existing image before you can upload a new one.
Some examples of how to use image widgets are linking to sponsor or speaker profiles, linking to specific sections within your app and adding additional branding to your event app. Keep in mind these are just a few of the things that image widgets can do within your app as they are very versatile!
Countdown widgets display the amount of time left until your event. Once you add a countdown widget, simply open the settings menu of the widget and select the date and time you would like to countdown to. Please be advised that the countdown time is tied to your event timezone which can be changed under Event Details in Experience.
Google Map Widgets
Google Map widgets display your event location through Google Maps. The widget can be sized into the same 3 shapes as an image widget and can have overlay text added to appear overtop of the widget.
The Agenda widget will display a preview of sessions that a user has in their schedule. The size of the widget will determine how many sessions are displayed. When selecting your agenda widget size within the agenda widget settings menu, it will show you how many sessions will appear.
