Discover the latest Eventee updates, featuring improved attendee import, schedule customization, and more.
Let's dive right in!
📥 Attendee import
With this update, we bring you an improved way of inviting attendees. While the previous version allowed you to pre-fill attendee information only through API or integrations, the new version of Eventee lets you pre-fill attendee profiles from .csv, .xlsx, xls, or .tsv. In other words, you can import attendees, including their detailed information through your event administration.
To make sure the information from your file is put in the right spot in Eventee, you need to map the attributes. After selecting or dragging and dropping the file with attendee information, you will be asked to align the Excel file's columns to the corresponding attributes in the Eventee system.
Eventee has these attributes:
- First name
- Last name
- Facebook link
- Twitter link
- Linkedin link
Import progress and results
You can close the window while waiting for Eventee to process your data. Once your data import is completed, you will see how many contacts were successfully imported, skipped, or erroneous. You can also download the contacts in .csv.
Successful - The attendee was successfully imported. These attendees will receive an email invitation once you publish your event.
Skipped - The most common reason for Eventee to skip attendees is when you cross the limit of emails you can send.
Error - Your data is invalid, therefore failed to import.
📤 Export workshop participants
Workshops are special sessions with limited seats. Newly, you can open the detail of each workshop and export all participants, including their personal information and the time they booked a seat.
You can export the file in .csv, .xlsx, or .xls format.
🗓️ Improvements in schedule
Customize the schedule view according to your preferences using these latest Eventee enhancements to the schedule. You can find them both in your administration, upper right corner.
Adjust the size of the schedule in your administration. You can zoom in or out using the "+" and "-". The schedule will scale at preset increments (50%, 100%, 150%, and 200%).
Note: This Eventee improvement applies only to your administration and aims to enhance your comfort while creating the schedule. If you need to scale the event schedule on the app for attendees, use the Schedule scale.
Hide times before the first session
The schedule on the attendee app always starts with the first session of each day. Newly, you can set this view for the schedule in your administration as well. In other words, the times before the first session will not be visible. This setting applies to all days and all halls on the schedule.
Note: You are still able to create a new session before the first created session even though you cannot see the times. Simply click anywhere on the schedule timeline and set the time manually in the detail of the new session. The schedule will then adapt to your changes.
💪 Social wall improvement
Attendees can now incorporate clickable links into their Socal wall posts. This improvement provides them with an additional opportunity to include everything they want to share.
The Social wall is one of the most popular features of Eventee. At the link below, you can learn more about how it can significantly increase attendee engagement at your event through shared experiences.
