Libraries

Libraries can be seen as a central point where data can be collected for all of your products to use. The type of data that you are working with will depend on the library that you will need to import it to.

People
This library is a place where you can upload all of the relevant information that will need to be included in profiles within the app, such as Attendee, Speakers, and Staff. These people can later be displayed within specific sections you have established for your Event App product.

Sessions
The Sessions library is where you will add the information that will be used to create your Agenda. In addition to this you can create Tracks that will allow you to organize the sessions you are including in the app, and to assign roles for the sessions you are displaying (i.e. Speakers and Moderators).

Companies
This library is where you will want to add in the relevant information to create profiles for any Sponsors, Exhibitors, Partner, Vendors, etc. that you will need to promote and highlight on the app. In addition to creating profiles, you will  have the option to establish Groups to organize them according to such things as sponsorship tier, or product type.

Documents
The Documents library is where you will want to upload any relevant resources that should be made accessible to your users through the app. These files can also be organized into Groups which you can later assign to display in sections you have created within the Event App.

Maps
This library allows you to host any image and Google maps that will need to be referenced within the Event App.

Surveys
In this library, you will have access to create and edit any event and session feedback surveys that you wish to use at your event.


Products

The Products section of Experience is where you will have access to build, customize and manage the relevant products you have purchased for your event such as: 

  • Registration
  • Check-In
  • Event App
  • Gamification
  • Live Display
  • Announcements

An arrow icon will indicate when a dropdown menu is available, and can be used to access additional areas related to the product. These areas allow you to build out or update various features.

Adding Data From Your LIbrary To Sections

Libraries may be a great way to add and organize your data, but Sections are how you will determine where this data is displayed in the app. 

A Sections area can be found within the Event App option of your Products list. In this area you will find a set of Sections that have been created by default on the app, and which can be hidden or displayed according to your preference. Additional Sections can also be created using the Add Section option at the top left hand side of the page. 

Clicking into an existing Section will allow you to update the Section Name and Icon, as well as determine if All or Specific data should be included in the section you are working with.

Section Types

When creating new sections, you will want to consider what type of data you are looking to display. 

Folder
This section type allows you to create custom pages of content, as well as include direct links to any relevant URLs that users may need to access. Typically this section type is used as an Info Booth, or as a collection of information that will help users while they are onsite at the event. 

Agenda
The Agenda section type is used to display sessions and tracks that are relevant to the schedule established for your event. 

People
People sections are used to display profile information, typically those of your Attendees and Speakers. 

Companies
Company sections are intended to display profile information for companies that may be exhibiting, sponsoring, or participating in your event at some capacity. These profiles can also be organized into groups to display such things as sponsorship tier, and product type. 

Documents
This section type is intended to provide access to resources that your users will need to reference for your event. Although groups can be established, keep in mind that they are not meant to act as categories within the app, but instead as a method to organizing your files so that you can display them within specific sections later on. 

Link
Adding a Link section establishes a direct link to a URL from the app menu. You can also direct users to a specific page within the app by using the web app to copy and paste the page's URL into this section type.
