Translucent Stage Cards, New Avatars, and More!

We've pushed a few small improvements: Translucent Stage Cards, New Avatars, and an Updated Session Status

ImproveAvatarColors-001.png

Translucent Stage Cards

Based on some recent feedback, we've updated the stage cards within the room to use a translucent background when users aren't sharing their cameras. This change should provide a more branded appearance to the cards, allowing the background color to shine.

New Avatars

We've added new placeholder avatars for people who don't have a Gravatar associated with their email address. The new style opts for a more neutral look to ensure that it works well with any/all brand colors used for your events.

Note: You'll find the new placeholder avatar styles in the room, directly in the account (for event admins and team members), as well as on public registration/replay pages for featured presenters.

Updated Session Status

Finally, to add more clarity around sessions, we've improved the language around a session's statusβ€”precisely when the session has not started.

Any admins that join the room will find a "Not Started" status message in the Event Details button and within the helper text used across the room.

 

Improvement

 

 

Up to 4 People on Stage (All Plans!)

While this was already the standard stage size for most plans, we needed to make a few key updates to our room architecture for 1000-attendee room sizes.

We're happy to stay that a stage size of 4 is now the standard across all plans (and all room sizes) on Demio.

Use a Custom Domain for All Public Pages! 🌐

Add your own domain, or sub-domain, to Demio in order to provide an even more immersive brand experience for your audience. πŸ”₯

Once connected, and set as the default, your domain will be used for all event pages (room, registration, recording, and more).

Here's an example in the room:

What about existing links?

We've made it simple to add a custom domain, while preserving all existing links (registration, join links, etc) that have already been shared. This way, you don't have to worry about any broken or dead links.

Any connected domains that are not set as default will automatically redirect to whatever domain is set as the current default.


This feature is only available on our Premium plan; you can learn more about this plan on our pricing page.

Already on the Premium plan? Simply add your domain from the settings area to get started.

Invite Your Entire Team to Demio & Enable Host Ability Separately πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦

Now, you can invite as many team members to your Demio account as you need, regardless of what plan you're on. No additional cost.

You'll still be limited by the number of Hosts on your account. However, with the new updates, you can easily enable or disable Host Ability from any team member based on available spots.

  • Team members without Host Ability will be able to login, as well as create & manage events.
  • Team members with Host Ability will be able to do all of the above, as well as Host events, and they will occupy a Host spot on your plan.

πŸ‘‰ Jump into your account to invite your team.

Additionally, you'll now see yourself as the account owner listed on the team page. You can even disable Host Ability from yourself and enable it for a different team member.


Upcoming Plan Changes

​If you currently have any team members who are not hosting events, we recommend disabling Host Ability from their account within the team area.

In the near future, we plan on making some adjustments to our current plans & pricing, specifically around additional Hosts. We'll be reaching out to you prior to any changes if you're affected by them.

[Zapier] Push registrations to Series events without upcoming sessions

 

Fix

 

 

We recently pushed an update around Series events that allows users to capture registrations 24/7, even if there are no sessions scheduled.

This new functionality worked as expected for Demio forms but users reported that registrations would fail through Zapier if there were no upcoming sessions. With this fix, we've improved our Zapier app to allow the same functionality supported by Demio forms.

Enhancing how registrations work for Series events! (and more) πŸ’ͺ

 

Improvement

 

 

We've improved Series events to allow you to continue capturing registrations, even when there aren't any upcoming sessions.

We've also made several additional updates that should improve how you and your team capture & view results for these series events. You'll now be able to:

  • always access/manage registrations for your series events β€” everything from accessing their join link to canceling their registration altogether
  • keep a pulse on your event by assessing your series insights at all times
  • more accurate CSV reports & activity log data

Secure your account with two-factor authentication (2FA) πŸ”’

 

New

 

 

With our recent initiative to improve security across the Demio platform, we're giving users the ability to enable two-factor authentication for their account.

To enable 2FA, access your Profile settings:

Once enabled, you will require an authentication code to verify all future logins.

For Account Owners: you can access your team settings page to view the 2FA status for your team members.
