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.

Smart Feed (default)

The Smart Feed shows your Mobile App 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 event's home screen!

⭐ Keep in mind, the Smart Feed doesn't display on the Web App.

The feed can show any of the following options:

⭐ Keep in mind, Smart Feed content updates automatically based on individual users and can't be configured to show specific items.

Features 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 showcasing sponsors take a backseat to provide attendees a simple way to access all your content!

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 directly to content already housed in your app or can link directly to a location outside the app, such as your premier sponsor's website!

Each banner displays for 5 seconds before rotating automatically to the next banner or being swiped by the user.

Upload banners

Including banners in your event is easy! First, create the image you want to use as a banner to the recommended dimensions — 950 pixels wide by 380 pixels tall — then go to the Appearance page, scroll down, and select the Banners layout. Now, click Manage Banners to edit existing banners you may already have, or click New Banner.

Two screenshots. One shows the Manage Banners button highlighted, and the other shows the Manage Banners modal.

In the modal that appears, enter a name for your Banner, and then upload the image.

⭐️ Keep in mind, we recommend that text on banners should be no less than 32pt to ensure it can be read by attendees.

Finally, select the Link type — either Internal or External. If you select External, enter the URL to the destination.

⭐️ Keep in mind, if the banner uses an external link, you shouldn't uncheck Open link in external browser unless you're sure the URL is embeddable.
