One of my favorite posts that I've seen in the Community was the Cvent Hacks one. I learned a ton of great tips from it, such as using custom data tags. I wasn't familiar with using them but had an event this year where creating custom data tags helped me quite a bit.
Since so much has changed in Cvent and with how events are right now, I thought it would be interesting to do another #cventhack post.
A current favorite of mine is being able to save reports to an Access Portal while I'm creating the event. If you're not familiar with Access Portals, check out this article.
I have a series of events that we do that are the same but held on different dates. When I create my initial event, I save the reports that I know I will need to share with others, such as the invitee and registrant details and the session registrants reports. I use that initial event as my template for the rest of them. Before I finish creating the events, I publish those saved reports to our Access Portal with titles that indicate which event the report is about. The needed reports are ready and waiting for my coworkers whenever they need them. Keep in mind that initially those reports won't have any data so you might want to come back and look at the reports later to make sure you're capturing everything correctly.
What #cventhack do you have to share?
A hack that I figured out recently is that I can edit the text in the calendar reminder by going to the "Add to Calendar" button in the website designer and adding text such as:When saving this appointment, make sure you update the reminder time.Please go back to your reminder email & click "Join Webinar" to enter, so that you do not have to re-register in Zoom. Should you have any login issues, please reach out to: ContactName@yourcompany.comUnfortunately you cannot update the reminder time with in Flex, or add data tags or a lot of text to this - but adding instructions definitely helps. Adding these features is something that is definitely on my wish list!
