Prepare your Event App
Some Live Display features show content from your Event App or Community, so before you set up your Live Display, make sure you add the Agenda, Game, and Wall features to your Event App if you plan to use them.
Enable Live Display
In your Event or Community navigation bar, click Live Display, then click Get Started.
Now, click the Enable Live Display toggle to activate it and start activating and configuring features.
There are six features to choose from, and each one adds value to your Live Display in its own way. As you add and edit features, the Live Preview on the right updates to show exactly what displays to attendees.
Our Introduction to Live Display article shows an example of each feature in action.
Social - Show attendee posts from the Wall feature.
Agenda - Show what's currently happening and what's next in your Agenda. Add the Agenda feature to your Event App or Community to link it to Live Display.
Networking - Show how many handshakes (connections) have been shared, along with a leaderboard showing who's made the most connections. This feature works automatically — no configuration needed!
Challenges - Add the Game feature to your Event App or Community to show the leaderboard.
Gallery - Upload sponsor images, the dinner menu, health and safety information, or anything else you think of.
Promote App - Add a helpful QR code that attendees can scan to download the iOS or Android app — even if you're using a Branded Mobile App.
Click Edit next to a feature to change its settings.
Depending on the feature, there are several settings to adjust in the modal that appears. Remember to click Save Changes when you're done editing features.
Name - This is the label that appears on the Live Display.
Choose Feature - Click the drop-down to select one feature from your Event App or Community so Live Display can pull in that content. This only appears in the settings for the Social, Agenda, and Challenges features.
Icon - Choose from a library of over 300,000 icons to help attendees understand what each feature contains.
Page Display Time - This setting determines how long the feature is on screen before rotating to the next. The Social, Networking, and Promote App features have this setting. The default is also the minimum — 20 seconds.
Empty Screen Message - When there's no content to display in a feature, this message appears. Instead of simply saying "Oops, nothing here", use a blank page as an opportunity to inform attendees or prompt actions. For example, if the Wall feature is blank, the Empty Screen Message could say "Be the first person to appear here. Go make a post on the Wall feature in the app!"
Image (Gallery only) - Click the Upload Image(s) button and follow the instructions in the uploader to add, crop, and edit images. Images should be 16:9 aspect ratio at a minimum of 1920 x 1080 pixels or 7680 x 4320 pixels for high quality on large displays.
When you finish adding and editing images, click Upload, then click Save Changes to finish.
Use Attendee Drawing to randomly select a person in your Event App or Community! To keep it quick and accurate, the drawing won't select blocked attendees, attendees who haven't logged in to the Event App, and attendees who won a previous drawing.
To draw a name, click the Open button. In the modal that appears, click Launch Attendee Drawing on Live Display. This starts the idle spinning of all attendee names on the Live Display.
Click Start Spinning to increase the spinning speed, then click Stop Spinning to reveal your random winner. Be sure to take note of the winner! Here's how attendees experience it:
