InfusionSoft custom fields issue caused by their recent API changes

Due to a recent change in InfusionSoft's API, the default fields are no longer mappable through Demio.

While we work on rebuilding the integration to function as it used to, please follow the below article to create custom fields in your InfusionSoft account, then you will be able to map it to any custom fields you create in Demio:

Manage your Automated Event Video

We just released an exciting update that will give you more flexibility than ever before. You can now find an Automation block within the Customize area of any Automated events.

Here's what this means for you…

  • Create an Automated event without initially uploading a video
  • See the status of your video (Uploading, Processing, Failed, and Active)
  • Easily upload a new video and swap out your current video.

Note: When you swap your Automated event video, the on-demand attendance graph will be reset.

Daily API Calls [Limitations]

We've introduced new limitations for our API, which includes 3rd-party apps such as Zapier.

Daily API Calls

The total number of API calls you can make to your account each day using the Demio API or any third-party tools like Zapier. Resets every 24 hours.

Free Trials - Free trials account are able to make up to 100 API calls per day.

Customers - Paying customers are able to make up to 5,000 API calls per day.

These limits were implemented with the intention of only affecting less than 1% of all users in an effort to protect our system from API abuse. These limits help us prevent any downtime with our API, as well as other integral systems.

If you need more than 5,000 daily API calls, you may request an increase here. Limit increases will be approved on a case-by-case basis.

You can track your daily usage from within the API tab of your settings area.

Keyboard Shortcut UX for Slides

Users have reported that Hosts/Presenters have been unknowingly changing presentation slides with their arrow keys while editing text in the room.

We've made a small improvement to automatically disable the keyboard shortcut whenever a user is focused within a text field with at least one text character present.

Improved File Upload & Management ⬆️

With this new component integrated throughout the entire app, you'll always have a simple and consistent experience when uploading files to Demio.

  • Understand accepted file types easier
  • Cancel uploads, and download/delete files after uploading
  • Better errors related to min/max requirements
  • Image / video thumbnail previews

You'll see this new component wherever it makes sense to upload a file: page editor, handouts, featured actions, presentation materials, etc.

Upload & Share Video Materials Directly 🎬

One of our most requested features ever, direct video uploads for presentation materials, is finally here! 🎉

Now, you can upload your videos directly to Demio (up to 5gb), and share them with your audience in the room.

The video will be synced for all participants, even on slower connections. Only Presenters will have video controls, which include play/pause, restart, and stop sharing.

💡 This feature is perfect for hosting hybrid-style webinars, where a portion of the session is pre-recorded, and for sharing short video clips like testimonials or product demos.

Note: This feature is replacing our current YouTube video materials. We will no longer be supporting YouTube videos after August 31st, 2020.

Registration Limit Setting (Bug 🐛)

Prior to this fix, if a registration limit was applied to upcoming sessions, and then the setting was disabled, the limit was still being applied incorrectly to certain sessions.

With this update, we've made sure that any registration limits are completely removed when the setting is disabled.

Marketo + Demio (Integration)

Marketo, meet Demio 🤝

With our all-new, native Marketo integration, you'll be able to make your webinar campaigns more effective than ever before without the help of any 3rd-party tools!

  • Create/update leads from new registrations
  • Save registrants' unique join links to custom fields
  • Pass any custom form field data upon registration
  • Update program statuses or add leads to specific lists based on certain actions (Registered, attended, and missed)

In the future, we will be improving this integration, along with our other integrations, to allow you to pass any attendance data from Demio.

Note: this is a premium integration, only available on the Business plan.

Select a Host & Easily Add Team Members as Event Admins

With this new update, each event will have a default Host, which you can set while creating an event. Additionally, only account users added as event admins will be able to join the room for an event.

Within the Event Admins block, we've made it easier than ever before to add team members (including yourself) as an admin with a couple clicks. You'll be able to define the role (Moderator, Presenter, or Host) for each team member you add.

Our goal is to help teams manage events on Demio more efficiently by only including users that are associated with specific events. Additionally, only the team members assigned as event admins will receive notifications.

⚠️ Important:

  1. In order to join the room for any event, including Automated events, you'll need to add yourself as an event admin. If you don't, the join room button will be disabled.

  2. ​All account users will now have Host ability; we've removed the option to disable Host permissions for certain account users within settings, but we will be improving this area in the future.
