Here are a few examples:

  • Links to websites simply open in a new browser tab.

  • Selecting a phone number on a mobile device gives the user the option to call or open the number in an app.

  • Selecting an email opens the user's default mail application. Tapping addresses opens the address in Google Maps.

Metrics

After attendees have had a chance to click around the event a bit, check out the Feature Comparison chart on the Metrics tab to see the number of clicks for each social link.

Pro tip! 😎

  • Make sure that you're using the "share link" for any websites you want to add, if available, and not simply copying the hyperlink in your browser since it may be different.
