    Good morning (or afternoon or evening, depending on your time zone) Cvent Community! We have A LOT of #EventCloud releases to share today - a good chunk of #Event(Flex) releases as well as a few on #CrowdCompass and #Passkey. Check it out.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    ​​​​

    Virtual Attendee Hub

     

    If you haven't heard, the Cvent Virtual Attendee Hub®, our all-new virtual event solution, is now available! To request a demo or hear more about this new offering, reach out to your Account Manager or check out our web page.

     

    Event Management

     

    Code Widget: You can now leverage a code widget to add custom widgets to your website and registration process beyond current style capabilities. These will allow for more advanced options on top of the already existing widgets and style options available. The code widget may be placed on any page and will follow the constraints of whichever section it is placed into. HTML, CSS, and Javascript are supported via the widget, and there is no limit to how many of these widgets you can use in your event. Responsiveness will be based on the responsive constraints input into the code itself.

    Partial Payments: Registrants can now submit a partial payment during initial registration and registration modifications. You can configure this on the back-end per path (within the payment widget). You can also choose to set a minimum payment based on a set amount or percentage. Partial payments will also be available for group registrations.

    Schedule Appointment Widget: You can now drop a widget on your post-reg pages to send registrants to the appointments site. This way, you can easily allow registrants coming from the event website and registration process to schedule appointments.

    Surveys Link Widget: You can now drop a widget on your post-reg pages to send registrants to the surveys site. This way, you can easily allow your registrants coming from the event website and registration process to access their surveys.

    Display Session-level Virtual Details on Registrant's Agenda Widget: You're now able to view session-level virtual details like meeting URL, recording URL, and password on registrant's agenda widget available on post-registration pages. A "Live" pill has also been added, which will be displayed when the session is ongoing at that time depending on the invitee's time zone.

     

    CrowdCompass

     

    Online Event Guide (OEG) Schedule in the Attendee Device's Time Zone: Attendees can now adjust which time zone their schedule and other event content appears in for the OEG. Before this, attendees would see their schedule in the event's time zone, but now they can adjust to their own device's time zone rather than the event's.

    Embedded Videos on Online Event Guide (OEG) Virtual Session Pages: You can now allow attendees to participate in a virtual session right on the session's page for the OEG. This way, the attendee won't need to leave the page they're on to join a virtual session or watch a recording. To set this up, you can enable an embedded video in EventCenter.

     

    Passkey

     

    Pace Report Improvements Event Comparison in Pace Report: You can now compare your selected event to another event of your choice. The comparison event can be selected from the "Recently Viewed" list. This step is optional; if you don't select a comparison event, we'll generate a single-event report for you. If you do select a comparison event, the report will show the event name and 2 columns of the event's data (specifically, "Total" and "% Sold").

    Hello,
    I'm hoping the code widget will replace the custom content block data tag. This is the only feature we are waiting for to use Flex for our more complex events. We need one place to add longer length of text that can be placed throughout the website and email communication. I just looked in our event website to find the widget following the directions listed in the knowledge base and the "Code" widget is not listed under Page Elements?

    Hey @Nadine Demyanovich! I had to flip one switch on the back-end of your account - you should be good to go now! Once you log out and log back in, you should see this new widget.​​

    I have the same issue. I do not see the code widget in the elements.

    @Tristen Asrejadid Is this something you could do for our account as well or should we contact our Account Manager directly?


    I was talking to David Quattrone at #CventConnect 2019 about adding this feature to Flex. I think pushing this out before the end of this year is fantastic! You guys at Cvent rock!

    @James Rose I would recommend reaching out to your Account Team because I see you all use two different Cvent accounts - they'll know which to apply changes to! And so glad you'll be able to leverage this feature for your events this year (and beyond)!

    I would like to have the code widget added to our account as well. I notice that it's available on the registration process or event website. Will it also be available in the Custom Data Tags also? We used the Custom Data Tags to input the same information in several places in our registration form and website which saved the meeting planners a lot of time when creating the events. That is one of the things we are waiting on before we can start creating events in Flex.
