Home is where the heart is. It's always where your attendees are welcomed to Cadence. 

When your attendees tap or swipe up on the Home screen of your event, they will be presented with Event Details. This is a handy place where you can add welcome messages, directions, materials and links to Speakers, Maps and other helpful content. 

To create a new section and attach materials, start by navigating to the Home menu.

Note: By default, your Event Location is automatically added to your Event.

Click on the Plus Sign in the upper-right corner.

Now enter your Section Name and your optional Text. 

Finally, set who can see this section with the Visible To field. By Default it is set to All, but you can specify who can see this section by changing this to Specified and then selecting the People or Groups that should see the section. 

Now we want to Link to Material. To attach our welcome letter PDF, click on Link to Material. 

If you've already created your PDF, you can find it in your Materials Repository, and click on Select a Material. 

If you need to upload a new PDF, click on Create Material, you will then be  asked to Select a File and add the Name of how you want the PDF to be named within Cadence.


The next page will allow you to set the Release time. You can set this to Immediately or Specify a Time and Date for the Material to become available.

We're almost done. Make sure to press Save on the Section Screen

Your new section and PDF will now appear in the Home menu and in Cadence.  Let's see how it looks.

Looks great! You can add as many materials to a section as you'd like.
