Event management is a multifaceted endeavor that requires seamless coordination between program admins, attendees, and speakers. At Dryfta, we understand the complexities involved and are committed to simplifying the process for you. We're thrilled to announce a series of updates to our Event Schedule Builder designed to enhance user experience and streamline operations. Let's delve into the details.
1. Real-Time Search Filters in Program Builder
We've updated the Program Builder to include real-time filters that work without reloading the page. This feature significantly enhances the user experience by providing instant search results, saving time for program admins who are managing various aspects of the event.
2. Enhanced Check-in Tool with Export Button
The Check-in tool now features an Export button that allows you to export a range of attendee details, including first/last name, role, organization, email address, user roles, check-in status, date, and time. This is particularly useful for registration staff who need to maintain records or generate reports.
3. Tracking Video and Slide Views in Sessions
For each session, we've added the ability to record hits on the "Watch Recording" and "View Slides" buttons. This allows you to track the number of times a pre-recorded video or slide has been viewed, providing valuable insights into attendee engagement.
4. Customizable Check-in Time for Sessions
We've added a setting that allows you to specify when the check-in for a session should begin. You can choose from options like 5, 10, 15, or 20 minutes before the session start time, with 5 minutes set as the default. This gives program admins greater control over the event flow.
5. Additional Abstract Information and Bulk Edit Function
You can now display additional abstract information under the session description. We've also added a bulk edit function, making it easier for program admins to manage multiple sessions simultaneously.
6. "Add to Session" in Bulk Edit Tool
The new "Add to Session" function in the Bulk Edit tool under Manage Submissions allows organizers to list abstracts as sub-sessions within the respective sessions. This is done by selecting the accepted abstracts, choosing "Add to Session" from the dropdown, and then selecting the session under which these abstracts will be listed as sub-sessions. This feature provides a more organized and structured way to manage your event's agenda.
These updates are designed to make your event management process as efficient and user-friendly as possible. Whether you're a program admin, an attendee, or a speaker, these new features offer something for everyone. We're excited for you to try them out and look forward to your feedback. Stay tuned for more updates!
