Release Notes

Monthly breakdown of what's new.

Previous January 2023

Clone events, add to calendar improvements, export pending registrations and a new home for event emails.

#1. Events can now be cloned.
It's now faster than ever to create an event based on how a previous one was setup. Simply select an event in the event listing and click the "Clone" option in the actions menu. You will then be prompted to complete a few required details about the new event, such as the date, time, name and URL.


Users can also select what other elements of the event to clone, such as pages and navigation, categorisation, sub-events, featured speakers and sponsors.


By default, all the access settings are cloned (except for tickets). 


#2. More useful calendar appointments

Attendees can now see much more information when they add an event to their calendar application. Details such as the event's title, date, time, description and speakers are visible within the calendar appointment.


The location also reflects the attendance mode. When the event has a physical venue, this is displayed in the location. When it is virtual, it points to the website. 


#3. Export pending registrations for faster review processes
For events that have gatekeeper enabled, clients have frequently told us they need pending registrations to be reviewed with internal stakeholders that do not have admin access. This is now a lot easier, as the list can be exported from the pending registrations page.

 


#4. Save time finding event emails

Email campaigns that relate to an event are now accessible within the event configuration, bringing an end to the tireless scrolling through pages of campaigns at the hub level. 


#5. No more Frankenstein UI!

The rapid pace of development needed in the past few years has meant we've never had time to properly finish off the admin interface. Well, things are now looking a little tidier. The main admin navigation has been standardised and gives a much smoother experience when moving between different sections of the site. Much expanded functionality also required some housekeeping of the Settings, which are now grouped around the core areas.
