Introducing More Powerful Registration Forms 💯

The wait is over—our form fields update is here! 🙌 You'll now be able to create more powerful forms that allow you to capture better data from your registrants.

Whether it's setting up a dropdown field to have registrants choose from answers you've created, creating a custom permissions checkbox, or offering a text area to capture more extensive text—our new form fields update makes it all possible!

We allow you to customize your forms using the following field types:

  • text field (with the option to validate for a URL/number)
  • text area
  • dropdown (up to 100 options)
  • checkbox

In addition to creating custom fields, you'll be able to add any of the following predefined fields to your form with just one click:

  • Last Name
  • Phone Number (validates and auto-formats entries)
  • Website (validates for a URL)
  • Company
  • GDPR (optional checkbox with customizable text)

Finally, we've made the experience of managing your form fields more intuitive, with options to edit existing fields as well as reorder your form.

Ready to check out the new changes? Jump into the Registration block within the Customize tab for any of your events to get started.

Important: The ability to create custom form fields will be available for all Growth/Business users. Any Starter users will be able to retain any custom text fields that they've previously added, as well as add predefined fields.

Note: If you have GDPR compliance enabled on your account, we've added the GDPR checkbox to all existing events. You can delete this field from any event from the form fields area. For newly created events, the GDPR checkbox will be added automatically by default.

Upload more presentation slide file types with higher quality results

With this update, we've completely rebuilt our presentation slide processing system.

We expect higher quality results across the board, as well as more accurate colors on the final output.

In addition, we now support a wide variety of file types beyond just PDF: KEY, PPT, PPTX, DPS, ODP, POT, POTX, PPS, PPSX, PPTM, SDA, and still PDF.

Note: Your slides will still be converted into images, so keep in mind that you may lose any animations or transition effects from your presentation.

Limit registrations for upcoming sessions

This heavily requested update allows you to enable a setting within the Registration block, which limits the maximum number of registrations for all upcoming sessions of an event.

When a Session Registration Limit is enabled, sessions will become unavailable and removed from all registration sources once the limit has been reached. (We'll send you a notification email if all of your upcoming sessions have reached the limit.)

With this setting, you'll be able to:

  • Ensure that registrations never exceed a specific amount (ex: room size)
  • More effectively spread registrations across all upcoming sessions

Note: This setting can be found in the Registration block of Standard and Automated events.

Improve understanding around On-Demand

We've pushed an update that is designed to add additional clarity to how the On-Demand option works.

Through reworking the text, our registration forms will better indicate to potential registrants that the On-Demand option will allow them to access the session instantly.

This will better communicate that the On-Demand option can be accessed at any time, offering an alternative to scheduled sessions and allowing flexibility for the registrant to engage with your session.

Note: This change will be applied to our registration forms across the platform—both the direct registration pages as well as the embed options.

See who's online with the new room status

With this update, any Event Admins will be able to view the status of any Attendees or Admins directly from within the event room.

This will allow you to better understand which contacts have actually entered the room after accessing their Join Link (only those that enter the room and appear as Online will be marked as Attended), as well as which Attendees are still online in the room.

AttendeeStatus-001.png copy.png

Here are the different statuses and what each of them means:

  • Online: the individual joined the event and is present in the room
  • Offline: the individual joined the event, but is no longer in the room
  • Waiting: the event hasn't started yet and the individual is in the waiting room
  • Joining: the individual is currently on the login page (shown before they enter the room)

Note: The status will only be visible to Event Admins.

Improved URL parameters for tracking purposes

  1. When someone registers and gets automatically redirected to the gateway (instead of the thank you page) it will add the parameter ?success to the URL.
  2. When any registrant logs in from the gateway into the room, it will add the parameter ?attended to the URL, and it also removes any other parameters such as ?success to make sure that event doesn't fire twice.

In summary: if you wanted to track events/conversions for registrations and attendances, you would simply just add your Facebook pixel to the thank you page and to the webinar room. Then you would setup conversion rules that look like this:

  • If URL contains success = registered
  • If URL contains attended = attended

The reason why this works is because we have the word "success" in the URL both on the thank you page, and also in the gateway if a registrant gets redirected there automatically.

Improvements to the waiting room 🕒

We've made some small improvements to the waiting room, which include:

  • User can see their registered name & email
  • User can easily add the upcoming session to their calendar
  • User can access their manage registration area

In addition to these improvements, we've also improved the overall style.

Manage Registration Area 📋

We've created a simple area for people to:

  • Add their upcoming session to any calendar
  • Grab their join link
  • Enable/disable reminder notifications
  • Cancel Registration

Prior to this update, we only supported Google Calendar from our confirmation & reminder emails. Now, registrants & admins alike can add the upcoming session to any major calendar in a couple clicks.

Event-level Language Setting 🗣️

With this update, you now have the ability to set a different language for each event within your account. The language setting can be found in the General block of the Customize area.

When a new event is created, it will still use your default language preference within your account settings.

Manage your sessions from the new Event Summary Table

We just launched a better way to manage sessions from within your events. With our new changes, you'll be able to:

  1. Quickly view & compare all sessions for that event.
  2. View a more accurate schedule for that event.
  3. Access key information quickly (e.g., session stats, event admins, recording details, etc.)
  4. Easily reschedule/cancel any specific session, particularly those that are part of any recurring schedules.
