The Lobby feature has replaced the Overview feature for all Event Apps and Communities created after January 26, 2023. All Event Apps and Communities created before that date can still use the Overview feature as well as the Lobby.

The Overview feature is a great place to welcome your attendees and help familiarize them with your event. Sharing things like important session reminders, instructions on how to use various features, or a link to a welcome video are all good ideas for the Overview feature. Position the Overview feature at the top of your feature list so it's the first page attendees see when they join your Event App!

Editing Overview feature content

When setting up an Event App, your first step is to fill in the Event Details page. The content you add here appears on the Overview page. Already finished creating the event? No problem!

In your Event navigation bar under 'Event App', click Basics to go the Event Details page.

Screenshot of the steps just described.

The Event Description on the Event Details page can include text with various text formatting options, hyperlinks, and images, including animated GIFs. If you make any updates, don't forget to click Publish Changes when you're done!
