While most of the sections on your app are designed to feature a specific kind of information, all sections are completely customizable and can be repurposed to suit your needs. Generally speaking, you should use the Speakers section for lists of people and the Info Booth or Companies sections to list anything else. You can add as many of these sections as you'd like, so don't be shy to try a few things out!
CUSTOMIZING YOUR SECTIONS
Customizing your sections is as easy as navigating to the Sections tab of the App Design Studio module and changing the names and icons.
If you want to keep your existing sections but you'd like some more to repurpose, you can also add as many of the sections that you're entitled to as you like. Just click Add a Module, choose your module type from the Module Type drop-down, and name your new section.
Speakers sections are great for any person-related content because profiles in the Speakers section contain bio and social media information, and they can be linked to items in the Agenda so attendees can easily find them when viewing sessions of interest. Anyone you want to list can go in a Speakers-type section.
- Onsite staff
- Authors or their works
Companies modules are typically used to house your sponsors and exhibitors, but are great for any other content you want to list. Within Companies modules, you can create categories that allow you to organize the items in your listing and give your attendees another way to find what they're looking for. To add categories, just click the Category button (which you can also rename) and enter your new category in the Create field, clicking Create when you're done. Once you've done this, you can hover over the category to change its color, name, or position in the list of categories. You can also use Excel for that, and you can click here to find out how.
Locations for items listed in a Companies section (which are established in the Booth field of each entry) are also linked to the Maps module. Locations on each profile bring attendees to the maps module, opening up the map automatically if there is only one.
- Raffle items
- Sites of interest
- Event features
The Info Booth contains pages and links that are great for containing basically any type of information. Info Booth pages are extremely versatile because they only contain an image and basic text field component, which you can use the Rich Text editor to customize fully. To add a page within the Info Booth, just click on Add Page, add your content and upload your images, and then click Add at the bottom. Similarly, to add a link, click Add Link, input the URL for the page you want to add and the name you want to give the link on your app, and click Save when you're done.
Once again, Info Booths are great catch-all sections for anything else you might want to add in your app:
- Document libraries
- Photo galleries
- City sites
Info Booths are also great if you just want to add a page of content as its own section within your menu. The first step is to create an Info Booth page with all of your content, then head to the Sections tab of the App Design Studio module to add a section (see above). The section type is going to be Direct Link, which will give you a button within your menu that will take you to any URL. Once that has been added, just input the URL for the Info Booth page you've created on the attendee's version of the app.
