System Changes

New structure for handling Registrants and Sessions/Applications + Images
Version: 1.19

In this update, we have significantly improved application and speaker management, including searching and sorting for speakers which is incredibly useful for larger events.

You can now also search Registrants so you can quickly search for specific people. We also renamed it “Registrants” as it more accurately reflects what is is - it is NOT an attendee list; it's a list of those who have registered for your event.

We've made a significant upgrade on our image handling. You can now include images in your speaker profile and in emails.

New system for updating your profile
Version: 1.18

Updating your profile just became a whole lot easier. Select “Start Here”, then Create or Edit your profile, and our wizard will take you through the process.

You can now also include images inside your profile.

We also ask you for social medial handles and will shortly display these on your profile page as well.

Overview of System Changes!
Version: 1.17.7

We have a changelog for the system! Now we can better show you what updates we have implemented, so you can discover the new features and fixes as we update the system.

We won't list absolutely everything - but new features and significant enhancements will definitely be listed.

Also - some updates are internal. For instance if we make updates so something works better but doesn't change any functionality then we'll skip adding an entry here.

Run of Show / Program At a Glance
Version: 1.17.6

For our Lifetime and Power plan users, we have added our first (beta) Run of Show and Program At A Glance.

We'll be enhancing these features significantly in the future.

However, already these two pages gives you a quick overview of what's going on in your event. The Run of Show includes the bio, talk descriptions, gift links and more.

The Program At A Glance is a quick overview of your speakers, with the timing of their talks.

Event Diagnostics
Version: 1.17.5

Ok, sometimes we just overlook things, especially when information is spread over many different speakers. And can be a hectic time when you create a virtual event.

So we created a Diagnostic page.

If you're running a summit, you'll find this in the menu on the left. The diagnostics will show you if we can detect anything wrong. Why a speaker is not showing up, whether the times you have entered overlaps another speaker, or indeed is outside the event dates.

We implemented the manual checks we do ourselves when we run a summit, so hopefully you'll find it useful for your event.

Remember, when you make changes to your speaker information you must manually refresh the Attendee Dashboard - there's a blue button on the diagnostic page that will push your changes live on the attendee site.

Fix error message
Version: 1.17.4

If something happened behind the scenes, you might get a “500 Server Error”. Well, before this update it wasn't a very effecitve error message - just saying “500 Server Error”, and leaving you wondering “what happened? what do I do now?”

Now, we have a nice page with some helpful guidance. We'll also let you know that we have system alerts that lets me know immediately when there's a problem - so you'll know I will be on the case asap.
