Managing your general settings

Manage general settings by adjusting the following settings:

Enable mobile usage of the virtual event

If enabled, the virtual platform can also be accessed from mobile phones. The users logging in on the phone will receive a pop-up, that for the optimal experience, we recommend using laptops/desktop PCs on a screen resolution of at least 1024px wide.

Enabling this feature will display a hybrid tag (online/in-person/unknown) for each user.

Provide attendees platform access for (a) specific day(s). Attendees with a certain tag will only be allowed to enter the platform when granted permission to do so.

Allow Google to index the page

The setting is turned on by default, therefore, the virtual event platform is searchable on Google. This setting can be disabled if you want Google not to index the website.

Allow Google Chrome to ask the user for automatic translations

When enabled, Google Chrome may suggest automatic translations in the platform. Pop-up to translate the page will not be automatic if the website is already displayed in German or Dutch.

Enable user specific timezone instead of event default timezone

The current timezone will be visible in the top right of the virtual event. Choose whether users can change to their own timezone instead of the event's default.

How many seconds before a session start?

Displays a countdown in programme items between 0 and 1800 seconds.

Enable login with LinkedIn

Select to allow users to login to the virtual platform with their LinkedIn account. The same mail address has to be imported in the admin panel as the one used for their LinkedIn account.

Add location tab to the popup for the co2 calculator

Enable whether attendees should be asked to fill in their location (for the CO2-caluclator) when they log in for the first time.

Should it be possible to match people based on their names?

The setting links the inserted information of the user to their LinkedIn account details based on their email or full name.

Enable this to remove the QR codes from the virtual event environment

QR-codes displayed at, for example, program items will be removed when this settings is enabled.
