    Can we set up the Agenda to list the description above the Speakers? Or at least change how the speakers display so it doesn't take up so much room per session? I want to show the speakers, but the description is the most important element per session on the Agenda page.

    I concur! This is so important. In building our event, working with the event builder team, we had to create a custom agenda to get this issue fixed. The build team did a great job - kudos - but unfortunately, as we update the agenda with new speakers, we have to ask the build team to update the HTML code. It would be so much easier and efficient to simply enter everything into the event management module.

    Yes, great point Christopher. I agree with both of you that the context for the session needs to be prioritized over the display of the speakers. The associated speaker content is the 'cherry on the top'.

    1 year ago we listed all additional agenda features we needed when starting using Cvent event management platform. We had a call with the product manager who said that all this was on the roadmap and should be launched in Q2 2020. We have sent quite a few reminders during this time and according to the last update, the new agenda features would be released in Q1 2021.

    Could we have an update on this, as there seem to be more clients than us asking for a more flexible and useful agenda? For example, if the agenda could have the same look/design/features on the event page as in the registration process/path, that would be an enhancement with 100%.

    Hi all,

    Thank you for your feedback! We understand how important the agenda functionality is within your event and can assure you we are continuing to make improvements. If you haven't already, be sure to share these as ideas here in the Community for my team and I to review in further detail and learn additional use cases. 

    The updated Web Agenda remains a valuable improvement for our teams to provide to our users.  As expected, the past year has required us to revisit and reassess much of the feature work we had originally planned on our roadmap and determine where certain projects would sit in terms of priority.  With that, the Web Agenda project has not yet started development and our current delivery timeline is projected for some time within Q3 2021.

    Thanks again, and please let me know any questions.

    Thank you for your update on this project, Rob. It is good to know where this fits into the re-prioritized timeline and that it is still on the future roadmap.
