This feature is extremely flexible, and can be used in countless ways to add value to your event app! For a quick way to showcase information, the Single Item feature is a perfect solution.

⭐️ The Single Item feature is very similar to the Custom List feature. The biggest difference is, when an attendee taps the Single Item feature, the item opens immediately. When an attendee taps the Custom List feature, they see the items in a list, and must click an item to be taken to the item's information.
Examples of the Single Item Feature
Welcome Letter - A quick letter from the event organizer, premiere sponsor, or CEO can be a great way to get attendees excited and make them feel welcome.
Event Contact Info - Make it easy for attendees to get a hold of you, right when they need you.
Health Tips - Encourage attendees to follow best practices for their health, such as coughing into the crook of their elbow or avoiding shaking hands. You can also add the location of your hand sanitizing station, or first aid booth.
Shuttle Schedule - Make it clear when folks should be where! You can also include an internal link to this item in an announcement that the shuttle is ready to go. 👍
WiFi - Add the info attendees need front and center, and prevent lots of attendee questions.
Parking - Include parking information to help guests, and help make sure you're not fielding parking questions on day 1! You can even hide this feature after the first day using groups.
Exhibitor Instructions - Provide your exhibitors with instructions for setting up and breaking down their booths, picking up their materials, and more. Use groups to ensure that exhibitors are the only ones who see this feature.
