Create your Butter.us Workshop Room
Head to Butter.us and click the Sign up for free button to create an account and start your journey. Follow the instructions in Butter's Getting Started article to create a workspace and design a room.
When you make the room for your Event App, we recommend uploading your event’s logo and adding a theme color to match your event’s branding.
Copy the Room URL
When you're done setting up the room, click the Start session button on the right side of the screen. In the new browser tab that opens, copy the URL from the address bar. You'll paste it into a Web Link feature in the next step.
Embed your Butter room in Webex Events
In the Webex Events platform, add a Web Link feature to your Event App. Edit the feature and paste the URL you copied in the previous step. Make sure you uncheck 'Open link in external browser' box so the room embeds in your event's Web App. You don't need to use the 'Pass Data to URL' checkbox.
💡 Keep in mind, to change the feature name and icon to better reflect your Butter Workshop room, simply click the feature's Settings (⚙️) icon to change them.
You're all set! Attendees using the your Event App's web version can join your room and interact without leaving the Event App.
When Mobile App users tap the Butter feature in your Event App, they're directed to the Butter app, if it's installed, or to a page where they can download the app on their device.
Let us know if you used this in your event and found a specific feature useful, or if we missed something that you think we should share with other customers.
