Matching the look and feel of your event app to the needs of your attendees and sponsors is key! To help with that, we provide a powerful yet easy way to customize the layout of your event app's features!
You can choose from the 3 Event Layouts shown above when building your event, which are described in more detail below.
Changing Your Event Layout
Starting from the home screen in the Socio Platform, follow these steps to change the layout for any of your events. You will also be able to see a Preview of each layout with your event's features!
My Events → Your Event → Edit Event → Appearance → Select Your Layout → Save
Smart Feed (Default)
The Smart Feed is what is recommended for most events. It shows your attendees personalized suggestions on what matters the most, right when they need it. The cards in the Smart Feed can be swiped left and right to show more content, but the feed also continuously updates when users come to the Events Home screen! The feed can show any of the following options:
- Recommended Connections
- Recent Announcements
- Upcoming Sessions
- Socio Card - *Socio Event App Only*
If your event has a lot of features and the content is meant to be front-and-center, the Features Only layout makes it easier than ever to access everything. This is great for events where personalization and sponsors take a backseat to provide attendees a simple way to access all your content!
The Banners layout allows you to rotate and showcase an unlimited number of custom banners that drive traffic to your sponsors, promotions, or any other content. Each banner can link directly to content already housed in your app or can link directly to a location outside of the app, such as your premier sponsor's website!
Each banner will show for 5 seconds before rotating automatically to the next banner or being swiped by the user. The recommended size for banners is 950 pixels by 380 pixels.
Including banners in your event is easy! First, create the image you wish to use as a banner. Then, you will simply edit your event's Appearance.
Once in the Appearance edit page, scroll down to the Layout section and pick the Banner option to use banners. You can click Manage Banners to edit existing banners you may already have, or to add a new banner.
