When you want to highlight a specific sponsor or speaker in their own dedicated feature or create a space in your Event App for attendees to learn more about a single topic, the Single Item feature is here for you. 👍 Add attachments, internal and external links, calls to action, and more. The flexibility and customization in the Single Item feature makes this a fantastic way to address countless needs.
Add the Single Item feature
In your Event's navigation bar under 'Event App', click Features, then click Add Features.
In the modal that appears, search for the feature, click Add, then close the modal.
When you're done making updates, click Save Changes.
Configure the item
Click the Edit button on the feature. In the modal that appears, fill in the following information:
Icon - Click Upload Image to upload a custom icon, or click Select Icon to choose one from our icon library. This is the same icon you edit in the feature's settings.
Name (required) - This tells your attendees the purpose of the item, so make it clear and concise. This is the same name you edit in the feature's settings.
Label/Subtitle - Use this additional line of text to add more information about the item. The Label/Subtitle field appears under the item's name in the Event App.
Location - Select a location so attendees know where to find the physical location related to the item. For example, if the item is a headline session or keynote, select the room where it's happening. If the item is a title sponsor, add their booth location in the expo hall.
Description - Tell attendees more about the purpose of the item. There are some basic text formatting options, including hyperlinks, images, and animated GIFs! 🙌
Attendee Calls to Action - Enter a Point of Contact Email address and a Meeting URL to let attendees easily contact or book a meeting with someone related to the item's content. Change the labels and use these buttons as links to external sites and resources instead of contact and scheduling!
If a URL you use leads to a site that's embeddable, uncheck the 'Open link in external browser' box so that the website opens inside your Event App's web version instead of in a new tab. For users on the Mobile App, linked content always opens in their device's default web browser.
Check the Pass Data to URL option if you want attendee information to pass from Webex Events to the URL.
Add Internal Links - Link the item to other features in your Event App, such as speakers, Sessions, and more. Read our Internal Links article for a full list of items that can be internally linked.
Add External Links - Enter multiple Website URLs, phone numbers, and email addresses related to the item. Simply select the Link Type, enter a Link Name, and supply the number, email, or URL. Click Add New Item to insert more External Links. If you enter a URL and uncheck 'Open link in external browser', test to ensure the site is embeddable! Check the Pass Data to URL option if you want attendee information to pass from Webex Events to the URL.
Attachments - Upload presentations, abstracts, or any other documents you want to offer attendees. If you simply want to link to a document you uploaded elsewhere in your Event App, use an Internal Link instead.
To upload a document, simply click Upload Attachment(s) and follow the instructions in the uploader. After you've uploaded files, click the Settings (⋯) icon next to an item to rename or delete it.
When you're done adding information to the item, click Save Changes. All done! 🎊
Single Item in practice
When attendees click on the Single Item feature, all the item's content displays within the Event App. The Label/Subtitle, if applicable, appears below the item title. Attendees click on internal or external links, CTAs, and documents to access them.
How others have used the Single Item feature
Here's a list of ways organizers have used this incredibly dynamic feature:
Welcome letter - A short letter from the event organizer, premiere sponsor, or CEO is a great way to get attendees excited and make them feel welcome.
Event contact information - Make it easy for attendees to get in touch right when they need you.
Health tips - Encourage attendees to follow best practices for their health. Consider adding the location of hand sanitizing stations or first aid booths.
Shuttle schedule - Make transit from airports and activity locations easy! Include an internal link to the item in an announcement alerting attendees when a shuttle is arriving.
WiFi information - Providing this information prevents lots of attendee questions. 😄
Parking information - Proactively inform guests and help make sure you're not fielding parking questions on day one! You can even use groups to hide this feature after the first day.
Staff and exhibitor instructions - Give staff and exhibitors a single contact and information hub in the app. Provide instructions and a timeline for setting up and breaking down booths, picking up materials, and more. Use groups to ensure that only the right people have access to the feature.
