Image Widgets
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. 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
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.
