How to use Networking
In Settings → Features, you can turn on our Networking feature. What are the benefits of using this feature?
- Attendees can create valuable business connections;
- Attendees can network during the day, they can chat, call each other, or set an appointment;
- Each attendee can decide who he/she wants to meet and who not - this ensures that your attendees will not be contacted by people they don't want to meet.
If you have a dedicated place for networking, you can let your attendees book tables for their meetings. Click on the button Manage (it will show up right after you activate the networking feature in tab Settings → Features) to open the window where you can fill in the information about the meeting place: name of the room, number of tables, size of each time slots and availability of the room.
Attendees will then be able to book rooms and available time slots for their meetings.
How does it work?
Our networking works similarly to Tinder. Each attendee who wants to network has to fill in a short personal profile with general information (name, company, position, and bio). Afterward, they can meet the others, by simply swiping right (meet) or left (pass). Once they match, they can start chatting, audio/video call each other, or set up a meeting right in the app. The communication is 1:1 and only matched attendees can see their private messages.
If the attendee swipes left (reject) user, it doesn't mean he/she can't see their profile again and change his/her mind. By clicking on an icon in the right corner, the attendee sees all the rejected users and can decide once more.
The arranged meetings will be automatically displayed in My agenda. The sessions in My agenda are sorted in chronological order. Before a session starts, attendees will receive a notification, so they won't miss any session they want to attend.
The Networking tool works across all Eventee platforms, which means your attendees can meet through the web app as well. Just like on the mobile app, attendees can filter out irrelevant contacts and save their time for contacts that truly matter. The button that opens the Networking feature is fixed to the bottom right corner, so it is visible to your attendees all the time, no matter on what page or in what session they are at the moment.
The web app displays the user profiles the same way as it is in the mobile app:
As an admin, you can observe Networking usage in real-time and also other interesting statistics in the tab Dashboard (sections Analytics, Session insights, Networking). You can motivate the attendees to network and remind them during the day that they don't need to wait for the evening party. Networking couldn't be any easier! 🤝
