Matching your Event App's style to meet the needs of your attendees, sponsors, and brand is key! To help with this, we provide a powerful yet easy way to customize the layout of your Event App's features.
Choose from the three Event App layouts shown above when setting up your Event App. Keep reading to learn about each one: Banners, Features Only, and Smart Feed.
Changing your Event App layout
In your Event navigation bar under ‘Event App’ (or 'Community' in a Community), click Appearance, then scroll down to the Layout section. Clicking a layout option shows a live preview to the right.
The Banners layout lets you showcase an unlimited number of custom banners that drive traffic to your sponsors, promotions, sessions, or any other content. Each banner can link to content already stored in your Event App or to a location outside the app, such as your premier sponsor's website!
Each banner displays for five seconds before rotating automatically to the next banner. Mobile App users can also swipe between banners.
Including banners in your Event App is easy! First, create the banner images to the recommended dimensions — 950 pixels wide by 380 pixels tall.
When your images are ready, go to the Appearance page's Layout section, select the Banners layout, and click Manage Banners. In the modal that appears, click New Banner.
In the New Banner modal, add the following information:
Name - Enter a name to help you identify this banner in the list. This name isn't shown to attendees.
Image - Select an image from your device, making sure it meets the following criteria:
Text on banners should be no less than 32pt to ensure readability.
950px by 380px PNG or JPEG file.
Visible To - Select one or more groups so that banners only appear to attendees in the selected group(s). This is great for tailoring content to virtual or in-person audiences, creating sponsorship tier opportunities, and more!
Activate Banner? - If you don't want to show attendees the banner yet, simply deactivate this toggle.
When you're finished, click Done, then click Save Changes to finalize the upload.
Use the Manage Banners modal at any time to edit Banners you've uploaded, view their active/inactive status, and view associated Groups.
If your Event App has a lot of features, and the content is meant to take center stage, the Features Only layout is a good choice to maximize space for the features list.
The Smart Feed shows your Mobile App attendees personalized suggestions on what matters most. Attendees can swipe Smart Feed cards left and right to show more content, and the feed continuously updates when users come to the Event App's home screen!
The feed can show any of the following options:
