Product Update: Web App Collapsible Left Menu and Internally Link to Features from Announcements and Banners
Webex Events Platform 6.5
Event App 37.0
In today's update, we're bringing you two small yet highly-requested improvements for the Event App. Watch the video below, or keep reading to learn more! 📖
Web App Collapsible Left Menu
Before now, the features list on the left side of the Web App was always visible, whether attendees were watching a live stream, joining a video room, or exploring a speakers or sponsors feature.
With today's release, attendees can now click a single button to collapse and then re-expand the features list so the feature content they're viewing takes center stage!
As always, the right side panel that appears in some features is still collapsible, and we've moved the collapse/expand button to the middle of the panel to match the new button on the left.
Internally Link to Features from Announcements and Banners
Internal links connect features and feature items you've created in your Webex Events App, like linking a Session to a speaker or sponsor. This provides your attendees with robust, intuitive navigation throughout the app. One highly-requested upgrade to this feature that we've received is the ability to link to an entire feature.
Today, we've added the ability to link Announcements and Banners to any feature in the Event App!
When you add an internal link to an announcement or banner, typing the name of a feature such as 'sponsors' reveals all items in the sponsors list with the feature at the top. Additionally, all items now show the name of their associated feature on the right side of the selection drop-down.
This improvement gives you more options to lead attendees to general areas instead of individual items within features. This means more intentional and actionable announcements and banners. Want to promote the Event Game with an announcement? Link the announcement to the Game feature so attendees can click to tap to go right there. Want to promote your in-app help center in a banner? Easy!
Important things to know
- Announcements and banners can only link to a single feature or item
- Feature items can only link to other feature items
