What's the difference between Event App Modules and General Settings modules?

MODULES

A module is a section of the Content Manager designed for creating and customizing content on the app. There are two types: Event App Modules and General Settings modules.
 

EVENT APP MODULES

Event App Modules on the left-hand side of your Content Manager are those that appear as clickable sections on your app. 

Home Screen: The Home Screen is the landing page for your app. Use dynamic widgets to link to engaging sections of your app, your sponsor's website, or a Google map of your location. If you want to achieve an effect on your Home Screen and it's not clear how, don't hesitate to contact us.

Agenda: The Agenda module is your primary scheduling tool and is optimized for creating itineraries, ordering and categorizing sessions, and defining breakout sessions.

Attendees: The Attendees module is ideal for listing attendees’ profiles, storing attendee information, and creating Attendee Groups for the purpose of sending out alerts to specific people. Networking largely happens in the Attendees module.

Speakers: The Speakers module is for listing speakers’ profiles and storing speaker data. Once you have listed your speakers here, their profiles can be linked to sessions in the Agenda module. Speakers modules are great for housing any person-related information or lists, particularly if those people are associated with sessions in your Agenda module.

Companies: The Companies module is typically used to showcase sponsors, exhibitors, partners, and other companies of interest, but is designed to be very versatile in order to fit your needs.

Social Media: The Social Media module allows you to feature links to your social media presence on various platforms.

Polls and Feedback: The Polls and Feedback module is perfect for getting all kinds of feedback. Have attendees privately rate and comment on sessions. Create polls and surveys and then, if you like, display the results live in-session.

Alerts: Use the Alerts module to create alerts that appear throughout the app. Pre-schedule them, identify specific recipients, and send them via the app and email simultaneously.

Maps: The Maps module is used for displaying maps, floor plans, and venue layouts. If Interactive Maps are included in your package, create pin-drops that indicate the exact locations of sessions and company booths.

Info Booth: Use the Info Booth module to feature any additional information – directions to the venue, nearby sites of interest, your website, a help desk – anything you want.

Group Discussion: This feature allows you to create discussion groups to help attendees spark conversations around similar interests - attendees can connect, discuss, debate ideas and discover new contacts before the event, onsite or even after the event has ended. It creates a private social network and helps build a sense of community. 

Documents:  Once documents have been added to your "Documents Library" you have the option of creating a "Documents" module and selecting which of the documents added to your app you would like to showcase to your attendees.  Our Document Library and module is included in the Max and Executive Packages.  The Document Library and module can also be added to any package, just let your account manager know!


Gamification: Use gamification to provide more incentives for attendees to participate in your meeting or event. Create networking, check-in games and scavenger hunts to create excitement, increase trade floor traffic and improve networking opportunities. 


Though each is optimized for a particular purpose, most are totally customizable and can be repurposed to suit your event. For example, the Companies module is optimized for listing sponsors or exhibitors, but was repurposed here to showcase products.

GENERAL SETTINGS MODULES

General Settings modules, which are listed below the Event App Modules, don't actually appear on your app. They are used for behind-the-scenes or "back-end" operations that range from establishing branding on the app and customizing the way front-end modules appear to promoting your event guide and gathering analytics.

Analytics: Monitor the rate of adoption and general usage of your app from the specific actions of users who've logged in to general statistics about the total number of pageviews and unique visitors. Rank the most popular modules, sessions, or banner ads and use that data to inform the rest of your event.

Event Info: The first module you see when you create your account, the Event Info module is where you list all the details about your event: the name of the event, its URL, its location, date and time, and so on.

Banner Ads: Add a banner ad that will appear on the bottom of every page. Link it to a sponsor’s profile and track how many clicks! This is a perfect opportunity to generate revenue for your event.

App Design Studio: Upload your event logo, customize the appearance of your app, hide modules, and more.

App Security: Limit access to your app and protect sensitive information by adding one or two security layers. You can create a password that people have to enter before accessing the app or require everyone to log in first, accepting only those emails you've already approved.

Native App: This allows your attendees quick access to your app in any of the four app stores. The Native App module is where you will submit your app to the app stores for approval. Native App is included in the Max and Executive Packages. The Native App feature can also be added to any package, just let your account manager know! 

Promotion: Download poster templates in a range of sizes and file-types; get tips on how to use your social media links and speakers to promote app-use; find an email invitation template that includes your event’s URL and QR code.

Preview: Preview how your app would appear on our iPhone simulator.
