This note details the new functionality included in release 1.0.321, released on Tuesday 11 August 2020. There are several new features included in this release, plus several bug fixes:

Renaming Tabs

What is the feature?

We now allow clients to rename and reorder the tabs used for section at event level (i.e. rename "rooms" as "streams") or rename and reorder the interaction tabs at session level (i.e. rename "Q&A" as "Chat").

Why is it useful?

We're seeing customers recognizing the flexibility of the product and pushing the use cases further and further, so wanted to give them even more customization options so they can make the experience for their attendees even clearer. 

Example uses:

  • "Q&A" might be used for "Chat"
  • In a virtual or hybrid world, "Topics" are often better named "On Demand" content
  • "Rooms" may be more familiar named as "Tracks" or "Streams"
  • In pharmaceutical or medical conferences, "Related Links" might be called "Reading Lists"

Additionally, the re-ordering allows organizers to emphasize use of one feature over another, by making it the default view when an audience member enters a session. For example, Twitter as the main view would encourage people to use this for social sharing, or Q&A as the default encourages more questions.

Here's a quick run-through on renaming tabs:

After logging into, create your presentation or select your presentation and click Edit Session.
