How to Submit & Manage Abstracts on a Dryfta-Powered Abstract System

One of the reasons Dryfta event platform is used by universities, non-profits and corporate is the platform’s ability to collect abstract and paper submissions and assign them to reviewers, apart from other features that it is capable of.

This blog post quickly explains how authors can submit abstracts and manage submitted abstracts.

To access the abstract submission site, one needs to log in using email and password. To access the abstract submission site if one doesn’t have login credentials, author has to create an account first. After creating an account, go to the abstract submissions login page, and enter the login credentials (email and password) to log in to the abstract system.

Once logged-in, go to My Abstracts page and click on Submit Abstract button to submit an abstract or paper. To edit an existing abstract, click on the name of the abstract which you want to edit.

Authors can revise abstracts up until the last date for abstract submission. After that, authors can view abstracts but they cannot make changes. Admin has the option to open abstract editing after submission date for those abstracts which have been accepted.

Full-featured iPhone Event App for your next Event

dryfta-ios-app

The Dryfta event app for iOS was launched last week.

With this update, we have covered one of our major milestones. Similar to our Android app, for organizers, the iOS app includes the ability to send push notifications to attendees, a QR code scanner to scan QR codes to checkin attendees to event and sessions. Also, it is automatically synced with the website data in real-time so whatever updates organizers push to the website would be synced and displayed on the app as well.

For attendees, the iOS app has a program schedule page listing program agenda, ability to connect with an attendee and request their contact details, scan fellow attendees’ badges to collect contact details, view speakers details, browse general information pages, and engage in forum discussions.

If you wish to try the iPhone app, please download it from the app store.

To see the latest features added and improvements made to the Dryfta event platform, go to our System Status page.

Dryfta offers a free trial account for 30 days to all universities and non-profits to try the platform with up to 30 free registrants.

Send Automated SMS notifications to Speakers about Upcoming Sessions

Need to make sure speakers are around when their session comes up during the event? Want attendees to fill up the seats prior to the session so you can assess if more seats need to be made available?

Stop worrying and set up automated SMS notifications. Dryfta’s automated SMS notification system notifies/reminds speakers and attendees about upcoming sessions. The SMS based notifications are sent to speaker’s registered phone number an hour before the session begins. This provides ample time to the speakers to reach the venue in time and do some final preparations for the session.

Since it also allows you to send automated notifications to attendees an hour prior to the session begins, you can be rest assured about seats filling up in time which would help you assess the demand for the session.

LinkedIn Company Pages is now integrated with Dryfta Organizations Manager

Dryfta-LinkedIn-integration

We have been working on this integration for some time now. Although, this is only the first version of the LinkedIn Company integration with Dryfta platform, we have laid out the basics. In future versions, we would be able to fetch real time news and updates from company pages. However, since this data is coming from a third-party, most of what is possible depends on LinkedIn’s policies related to its data use.

In our first LinkedIn company integration, we have created a tool to manage Organizations listings. Admins can add companies under Organizations tab and later use it to add contacts. Organizations also list the companies and organizations as added by users during registration. Each organization would have basic information including country and HQ location along with the complete list of contacts from that organization.
