WINTER 2022 RELEASES


EVENTS

All of your Events

Search, Refine, Reporting & Analytics

As the all-in-one platform, we want to put the power in your organizations hands to have a global events listing that's beautiful to view, easy to search and refine, and powerful in its reporting and analytics.

We have added the ability on web and app for you to view your events in image view or list view with improved searching and refining, including custom fields. Best of all will be the reporting and analytics available in real-time.

Register for Events within Cadence

You will now be able to display all events that are open for registration within the Events listing within Cadence web and app.

Bring further visibility to all events that are available to register for your audience. This new feature enables you to make all upcoming events visible within Cadence pre-registration for all prospective attendees.

When you enable registration, if the user is part of your registration list, the event will display in the Events listing for them to register for. The attendee will always see either Register or Registered status for each event. Register displays bringing the user to your registration site and Registered displays after the user has registered.

The Register button will navigate the user to your registration site, whether enabled through Cadence or linking to an external registration site, such as through Cvent or EventBrite.

This feature is available by request. If you would like enabled for your account, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

External Events from Cadence (Beta)

As much as it hurts us to say, we do know that you may occasionally host your events outside of Cadence, such as through Zoom, Teams, or another events platform. As our customers want Cadence to be the singular location that their audience knows to find their events, we wanted to support the ability for you to display all your events to your audience with the ability to navigate the attendee to the specific external event experience.

When you create or edit your event, you may select External Event and enter the External Event URL, such as. Zoom Meeting or Zoom Webinar URL. In the listing of Events, when the attendee selects the Event, it will open up the external URL, such as opening up Zoom.

This feature is available in Beta. If you would like enabled for your event, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

Events - Custom Fields (Beta)

Each organization may want to organize their Events as needed for their company. We have implemented the ability for you to add custom fields, such as Event Type, Product, Brand, Region, Country.

These fields will display within Create/Edit Event, Event listings page, Search & Refine, and Reporting & Analytics.

This will open up the ability to allow your attendees to search and refine the list of events by these custom fields as well as provide helpful insights in your reporting & analytics across time.

This feature is available in Beta. If you would like enabled for your event, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

HOME

Home - Text Tiles (Beta)

As Home is one of event organizer's primary areas of communication to their audience, we have add a new tile type, Text Tiles. Text Tiles allow you to communicate a message through written text to your audience.

Use Text Tiles as your communication channel for Welcome Messages, announcements, and

Mobile View

This feature is available in Beta. If you would like enabled for your event, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

Home - Tile Layouts (Beta)

To give you even more control over your Home screen conveying your organization's or event theme's look and feel, you may now layout your tiles to be either single column, double column, single row, or double row layouts.

Additionally, you may control whether your tiles are left aligned, centered or right aligned.

These improvements will provide more flexibility around laying out your tiles linking to each experience of your event, while maintaining the look and feel of your branding, especially if you want your company's logo or event theme messaging smack dab in the middle of your landing page.

This feature is available in Beta. If you would like enabled for your event, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

Home - Live Video (Beta)

One of the most requested features throughout 2021 was the ability to display a live broadcast directly on the first area of your event that your attendees experience, which is Home.

We've listened and ideated upon the experience for you and your audience. To simplify the set-up on your end, we now display a Live Video tile for any live Symphony that uses custom live stream, embed or uploaded videos. Your audience will instantly see the live broadcast on your event's Home screen and may join the Symphony by clicking on the tile. Alternatively, they may use the new Picture in Picture feature to watch your broadcast while continuing upon their normal day-to-day work cadence.

This feature is available in Beta. If you would like enabled for your event, please contact your dedicated customer success manager or our help center.

COLLECTIONS

The ideal use case would be one you release 10+ resources for event, such as with your on-demand recordings.

Symphony – Live Streaming

Our customers traditionally utilize a platform such as Vimeo or YouTube to connect their live broadcasts from their production studio into Symphony. To further reduce the delay in your audience seeing the live speakers along with reducing the costs of utilizing an intermediary platform for streaming, we now support RTMP live streaming directly into Symphony via our platform partner Mux.

When setting up your setting, select the new option for Live Stream to receive your stream key and URL for applying to your source, such as Zoom or your production studio.

Your RTMP broadcast will automatically display when Live on your event Home screen for increased visibility for your attendees.
