The Single Document feature lets you provide attendees with a PDF or image in a simple, one-click view. This is similar to the Documents feature, though only one document launches immediately when an attendee clicks or taps the feature.

How others have used Single Document

Here are some ways we've seen others use the Single Document feature:

  • Welcome Letter - A quick letter from the event organizer, premiere sponsor, or CEO is a great way to get attendees excited and make them feel welcome.

  • Health Policy - In a world growing more and more health-conscious, safety policies are a common question and concern for attendees. This is a great high-visibility way to proactively provide this information.

  • Attendees List, Map, or Agenda - While we have features for these, attendees that prefer a hard-copy version will appreciate it.

  • Seating Chart or Table Assignments - Helping guide your attendees around the venue and activities at every step helps them feel confident and at ease so they can focus on having a good time.

  • VIP Doc - Consider using the Single Document feature for any group-specific information that's best available in hard-copy form, such as a VIP party flyer. Use the Visible to setting to ensure only the Groups who need it can see it.

  • Menus - Are you the type of person who has to check the menu before you go? There's at least one in every crowd. Consider uploading the menu ahead of time to help those folks out.
