    Happy Thursday, Cvent Community! Who's excited to catch up on exciting releases from this past week? We've got various updates to share across #VirtualAttendeeHub, #Event(Flex), and #VenueSourcing.


    Virtual Attendee Hub


    Email Data Tag Updates in Appointments: The Attendee Response email data tags will now redirect to the Appointments calendar, so attendees can easily view, respond, or manage their appointments if the attendee website in Attendee Hub isn't live yet. This provides you with more flexibility as we integrate Appointments and Attendee Hub.

    Banner Image Cropping Update: We made some updates on the back-end so banner images will no longer crop. As a reminder, the recommended size for Virtual Attendee Hub banners is 1464 x 45 pixels and the maximum image height is 225 pixels.


    Event Registration (Flex)


    Group Registration Limit Increase: The group member limit has been increased to 100. Any event using Group Registration can now raise the group member limit in their Registration Path settings. New limits for Guest Registration will be coming soon – keep an eye on upcoming Release Notes!

    Webcast Details in Add to Calendar File: You can now display webcast details in .ics (calendar) files using the new toggle in the Add to Calendar widget.

    • "Display virtual event/session details" toggle will be set to YES in existing events (you can change this manually)
    • If virtual fields don't have any virtual details populated, this section will not appear in the .ics file

    Collect Credit Card for Later Processing:
     You can now collect credit card information without needing a merchant account for the event. This data is stored securely and is available in reports, but only visible to users who have the appropriate permissions. Use the reports to process the payments offline, or even process payments online if connecting to a merchant account at a later time.


    Cvent Supplier Network (Planner-side)


    Planner Reviews: You can now write a review for an awarded RFP after your event dates have passed. Reviews will appear under a new tab named "Reviews" and can also be accessed from the Suppliers and Responses page. All reviews will be available in reports and on the venue's profile.
