Embedded experience for interactive (collaborative) sessions
We are excited to announce the release of a new embedded experience in Attendee Hub for interactive (collaborative) sessions, which allows you to do the following:
Profile: Connections (Event App)
Connections are now available on the Profile within the Event App so that attendees can now connect with other attendees and view other attendees'their Connections as well as easily view their Mutual Connections. This enhances the Connections feature to build familiarity between attendees and break down barriers by fostering a sense of shared community. This givesprovides attendees yet another avenue and motivation to connect with one another. Connections which, in turn, allows usCvent Attendee Hub to better tailor the our networking recommendation engine based on these connections.
Attendee Hub Page Banners
Banners give you a way to promote event-specific messaging or increase sponsorship opportunities in an impactful formatmanner. You can configure banners from App Builder that appear in the Attendee Hub Exhibitors page. Supported banners include text-only, inset-image, and full-width images and can also be scheduled to always appear, never appear, or a custom schedule.
Additional Multi-Lingual Support
The following features are now supported in multi-lingual Attendee Hub events (Both App & Web):
Text Discussions Image Time Extension
Previously in Text Discussions, images that were uploaded within the chat only had a lifespan of 7 days. After the 7 days passed, the images were replaced with a blank state. With this release, the images will be available in the chat for as long as the chat is live.
Removal of Text Labels from the Cvent Events App bottom navigation bar
The text labels from the Cvent Events App bottom navigation bar have been removed. This change should remove translation issues that were coming up regarding the bottom navigation bar.
Open Authorization for Attendee Hub Standalone
You are no longer required to use the registration/website features in order to have SSO enabled in the Attendee Hub.
Exhibitor Opt-in question updates
We have introduced the ability to edit exhibitor opt-in questions and answer texts even after an attendee has answered the question. You can also now translate the questions and answer choices using language management. As a reminder, you must be on the latest version of the event app to see these updates.
Increased Personalization with Question Link Logic
Streamline and personalize your registration process, by using this new logic to ask your attendees questions relevant to them. Link logic lets you personalize a question's answer choices based on a previous question's response during registration.
More Control over Event Access with Blocklists
Planners can now associate blocklists to their events. This gives you better control of your event access by blocking selected contacts from registering and even gives you the ability to display a custom message that will display when they try to register. Apply these however makes sense for you, whether it's across all events, or to a specific single event.
Ability to Update Session Registrations for Hybrid Events
Make bulk changes to your session registrations with the capacity count for your different attendee types in mind. You can register or unregister up to 1000 attendees at once and the system will automatically recognize the capacities for in-person and virtual settings.
Display tax-inclusive prices during registration
You now have the option to show your registrants the total cost of any item upfront, inclusive of taxes, so that they can be aware of the total cost. This makes it easy to ensure compliance with your country's laws regarding how to properly display prices.
Event Vouchers Planner Alert
Stay on top of your event vouchers by using alerts any time a voucher code is used by Invitee. This can be manually added or imported when creating vouchers via the import process. For more customization, you can even set up a single alert for all event vouchers or choose to separate alerts by choosing specific voucher codes.
Air Actuals Opt Out & Tracking
Air Actuals widget will display options to help planners keep track of which attendees opt out of providing their pre-booked flight details. You will also be able to easily access reports to have visibility into the invitees who opted out from entering the flight details.
GetThere IntegrationYou can now use GetThere integration in your registration (flex) events. This gives invitees an easy path to the GetThere website to make their flight bookings. Once booked, the flight information is sent directly Cvent to be saved as Air Actuals.
Registration Waitlist updates
Previously, the waitlist was enabled automatically in the registration path created by default on event creation. We have enhanced the registration waitlist functionality so this is now disabled by default and you will need to enable it manually.
Website and Registration Preview button on all pages in Events
Website and Registration Preview button will be available on all pages, if any of the website or registration feature is enabled in the event.
The Budget module has been reimagined to improve the overall user experience. With New Budget, we've added a Budget Summary dashboard, new Budget Admin configuration settings, an enhanced Budget Item grid, and improved Budget item creation workflows.
New Budget Card Integrations
The Citi Virtual Card integration has been redesigned to be part of the new Budget module. We've added a new card transactions home page, virtual card types, flows for managing and distributing virtual cards, transaction matching workflows, and currency conversion for transaction matching.
For users using the Legacy Budget module, there are a couple of small UI changes that have been incorporated for the Amex Meeting Card integration as well.
Simple RFP within Access Portal
Simple RFP allows Access Portal users to search for venues, send RFPs, and compare proposals. Cvent account admins can set parameters and controls around this process. With Simple RFP, you can filter your search by preferred venues, utilize Simple Sourcing policies, pre-populate your request forms, and much more!
RFP data sent from an Access Portal integrates back into Cvent's Cvent Supplier Network solution, so you can view and manage data properly. Simple RFPs will be identified to a hotel with a unique lead source called Cvent Simple Meetings.
Enhancements to Access Portal Requests and Event List
The Access Portal "Requests and Events" list has been enhanced for your overall usability. We have updated the table to include pagination, which is a set number of records per page. This provides even better performance of the page, especially for portals with a lot of guest users.
Access Portal SSO Enhancements
Access Portal (AP) users can now sign in via Single Sign-On (SSO) and immediately reach a Meeting Request Form (MRF), without needing to land on the AP login page and click "Login with SSO". You also have the ability to customize the text on the AP Login Page SSO Button.
Enhancements to Sleeping Room Requirement Grid on Meeting Request Form
The Sleeping Room Requirement (SRR) Grid on the Meeting Request Form (MRF) will now allow users to populate all rows based on the event dates or choose to build out the rows of the grid manually.
Enhancements to Viewing/Editing Submitted MRFs
Navigation buttons for submitted meeting requests on the planner side of Cvent can now be found in a persistent navigational bar that can always be seen by the user. Single page and multi-page meeting requests will have the new navigational bar.

OnArrival Version 3.69 The newest version of Onarrival now allows you to do the following:
OnArrival Android 1.25
OnArrival Android 1.25 includes 2 new session scanning types: Open Door Mode and Duration-Tracking Mode.
Open Door Mode allows multiple check-ins for attendees. The first check in marks participation and every other check in is captured as an encounter and available in reports and attendee details. Duration
Tracking Mode allows attendees to check in > check out > re-enter > check out (etc), to track duration for in-person attendees. Similarly to open door mode, the first check in marks participation and every other check in/out is captured as an encounter and available in reports and OA attendee details. This is limited to a single device, under 200 attendance sessions at this time. Only admin mode scanning as this is not supported for kiosk mode
New Appointment API available in Universal API
You can use the API 'Cancel Appointments' to cancel one or more existing appointments in an event, which enables you to action on hundreds of meetings within a matter of minutes.
New Appointments APIs available
We can now better support those who have appointment programs that are generated from an external system by simplifying the process of getting the meetings into our appointments solution. The New APIs include 'List Available Times' and 'Create Appointments'.
You can use the API 'List Available Times' to retrieve a complete list of available time slots in your event to understand where and when appointments can be booked. You can use the API 'Create Appointments' to import one or more appointments, allowing you to schedule hundreds of meetings within a matter of minutes.
You can now configure a time limit on non-event surveys. The time limit applies to the whole survey, not per question. For respondents, this means that the survey must be submitted within the planner configured time limit. If the survey is not submitted within the limit, then the survey will be auto submitted when the time is up.
Multi-Lingual Support for Assessments
You can now add multi-lingual support to assessment so attendees can take them in their preferred language. Language will be added automatically based on what is configured for the event. You will need to add the language widget to the assessment page in Site Designer.
