Agenda at a Glance

    Hello! I am brand new to Cvent and this is my first post/question. Any help would be appreciated. Our virtual conference is in July and we want to get registration out soon without the sessions. We will have them select "optional" sessions at a later date. However, I would like to add the "Agenda at a Glance" widget to the registration that goes out, but I see that this is not an option. I know I can add that widget to the website Agenda page, but I'd like it to show on the registration page. Is there a work around for this? 

    Thank you!

    I would add an agenda PDF under documents within your site and then put that PDF URL in a custom link button on the site called "View Agenda".  I actually use this a lot because the agenda can open in a new tab.

    Welcome!  I usually add a text box on the registration page and re-create the agenda in the text box.  Hopefully the agenda isn't too long, otherwise that would be time consuming.  Sometimes, I add the agenda as an image, depending on the situation.

    Hi Angela,

    Currently, the "Agenda at a Glance" widget can only be added to a website page and cannot be added to the registration process. You can create a weblink within Promotion & Communication > Weblinks > Create Link, to link out to your Agenda page or any custom website page where you have placed the Agenda at a Glance widget and then insert this hyperlink within a text widget anywhere you'd like it to appear in the registration process and say something along the lines of "click here to view the Agenda at a Glance" and then registrants will be brought to that webpage to view the agenda. I would recommend setting it up to open in a new window, so they are not directed away from the actual registration process in any way. You can also hyperlink out to this page in your invitation emails or other promotions when you invite registrants to register for the event.
