Dryfta is getting an upgrade this month, with new and improved features to manage your event. Let’s explore!
Custom modules to design flexible event website
We’re currently working on custom modules in website builder so one can add as many custom text, photos, forms, videos etc on the homepage. Current website builder does not have this ability. We expect this to be out by the next week.
Currently, when you send an email from within Dryfta, we use our own email account to send those emails on your behalf. We received a lot of feedback from our customers that they would like those emails sent using their own email address instead of ours, so we’re going to implement that change over the next few days.
What makes it so important?
- Emails sent from Dryfta are far less likely to be caught by spam filters because they are sent from your own email address now
- Any replies to those emails go straight to your inbox
- If you have configured DKIM for your domain, all emails sent will be signed automatically, further reducing mail being caught in spam filters
- Dryfta will still be able to track clicks and opens per email template, you will still be able to use the same templates you’ve created
- Ability to send outbound emails from multiple email addresses of your choice (within the same domain)
We’re going to roll out this improvement in the next few days, and to enable these features you only need to verify your domain once. We support all private domains eg. yourdomainname.com. We currently do not support the public email providers like Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo, Google Apps etc.
Update: This feature is now released and has been rolled out across the platform.
Someone recently asked me how she should go about organizing an event. So I jotted down a quick list of things which I do to plan my own events and making sure my attendees go home happy, and I also get to have a decent ROI.
Here’re the most common things that I do every time I have to organize an event:
There are almost 300 event management platforms out there. However, not everyone caters everything to everyone. Some only focus on registration systems, while others focus on attendees engagement. Some are primarily developed for corporate events, while others are focused on academic conferences. The problem is not a single event platform was ever developed with academic conferences in mind. There are platforms which provide abstract management, peer reviews, and ticketing but that’s not all that happens in academic conferences. Apart from presenting their papers, they also attend numerous sessions, workshops. The attendees at the conference network with fellow attendees, speakers, authors and researchers, collect leads and contact details from them, setup one to one meetings with each other. There’s so much that happens in an academic conference.
