Customize the wording of a the Virtual Attend LInk

  • 1.  Customize the wording of a the Virtual Attend LInk

    Posted 09-14-2020 10:34
    Is there any way to customize or change the Virtual Meeting Join Data Tag (V-EVENT ATTENDEE LINK])?   For almost every type of Virtual meeting the link to join is "Join Meeting Now" or some version of that.  For some reason Cvent decided to use "Attend virtual event".  I would like to change the wording of the link.  I do realize I can just manually type the text and add a hyperlink but I would like to use the data tag so that it will look back at the event details and can be used in a template.  Even better would be a button widget.  Has anyone found a way to customize this data tag without just linking manual text? 
    TIA!

    Hello Jennifer, 

    My usual trick is to use a button instead, and put the data tag info in the button URL field. You should be able to use {[V-EVENT ATTENDEE URL]} and choose whatever text you want for the button! I do this a lot with the Modify Registration and See Registration data tags in my Confirmation Emails. I've not done it yet with this specific one, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. 

    Cheers,

    Belize, this is brilliant!  I had no idea that you could put a data tag as the url for a button.  I tried it and it works like a charm.  This is an excellent workaround!  Thank you!  ​

    Hi Jennifer, 

    Have you searched to see if that field shows up in Language Management? If you can find that particular item in the list, you can easily edit the language that is displayed there. 

    I did a quick search for the word "virtual" and two results pull up. It doesn't exactly match what you wrote in your email but if it is the same text, it can be edited here:

    Sharna, Thank you for the tip.  I never thought of that and now I have two great workarounds.   I changed the title in Language Management and learned you can use data tags for a Button URL.   Thank you for the help!!

    We did the same thing as Beline for a similar use - we created a button and put the tag inside the button. Works like a charm!

    I would agree with Béline FALZON, to use a button instead, and put the data tag info in the button URL field. You should be able to use {[V-EVENT ATTENDEE URL]} and choose whatever text you want for the button.
