The Web Link feature is used as a direct button to any hyperlink. This feature is extremely flexible, and can be used in countless ways to add value to your event app! For a quick way to link to information that is best presented in another website, or for outside information, the Web Link feature is a perfect solution!
For instructions on implementing this feature, and ideas for how to use it, check out the below. 👇

Add the Web Link feature to your feature list, and click Edit on the Web Link icon.
Simply enter the link in the Link field, and click Save Changes. It's that simple. 👍
