If you received a great response on your discussion post, you should mark it as best answer. This helps other users quickly find the top response and gives credit to the person who posted it. To mark a reply as the best answer, select the down arrow beside the reply button of the response and select “Make best answer.”  

You can also recommend posts you like by selecting “Recommend” above the reply button.

I joined Cvent in January of 2022 and am so excited to be here! With my years of experience in event planning and community management, I am looking forward to have the opportunity to support you in the Cvent Community. Some things that I enjoy in my free time are playing and watching sports, anything outdoors, and spending time with Danny my Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. I live in Florida and am fortunate enough to see a lot of sunshine and enjoy beach days all year long!
