About the E-vnt app
Yes. It will always be free to Attendees.
Yes. It is available in both app stores. See the links at the bottom of this page.
Configuring your brand
Add your company name and logo (.png image format).
The app preview will show how your logo will look.
You will have the option to suppress the logo on pages that already have it (like your web site).
You can also use this page to change all the colours throughout your app, and allocate a default font family.
The preview shows you how this will look.
See the video ‘Configuring your brand‘.
Adding content to your app
If you have signed up, and logged in – the first page you will see is ‘Configuring your brand’.
Next you will need to add an Event.
Once you’ve configured your brand, added your event name, location and a Home image – you need to add more pages.
We’ve added some automatically, like a Messages page, website, home and Event info.
As many as you wish. Our system will automatically add a More page to list any more than your 5th page.
There are a number of different page types you can add to each Event.
Home – Every app must have a Home page (default). Add one or more images as a gallery (just add as many images as you wish).
Messages – (default) Contains your image messages.
Event Info – Timetables, menus, reistration, transportation, Emergency procedures – any information attendees might want prior to or during your event.
Add language translations (subscription required)
Call – calls the number you right out of your app.
Rich Text Format – adds a dynamic page, with any content you wish (text and images).
URL website address – links direct to any page on any website – must be https secure.
Menu – create your F&B menus, colors and images, choosing currency, menu items – and Contact Trace check in.
Facebook – Make sure you are loged into your Facebook page, then select that option and just add your ID, we’ll automatically add your FB feed.
Contacts directory – add a title, email and phone for any number of contacts (Organisers Office etc)
We are adding more page types all the time – these are in the pipeline
We recommend you provide images that are 2208 x 2208 pixels, saved for web as a .jpg or .png.
Choose the best format for the type of image you are using (say, .jpg for a ‘picture’ taken with a camera and .png for a logo or digital illustration – where there are flat colours)
You should save them so the file size is reasonably small, around 300k or less if possible.
The images will be cropped left and right depending upon the device they are viewed on.
It is best to have your main content within the central 700 pixels wide, content outside this area may be cropped depending upon device.
Adding additional events
Add a single branded event or if you have multiple event brands and want them connected, add your event company and then add separate events. You choose.
You can add as many as you wish. Our admin works out how many there are and automatically adds a ‘More’ tab as necessary.
No. You can create a single Event experience app, and then ‘duplicate’ it, then rename and edit the copy.
This is your own app in the stores (as opposed to adding your content to E-vnt app).
We can ‘save out’ your content from E-vnt and ‘wrap’ it in your own app in the app stores.
You will still use our Admin, just benefit from having your own app listing.
You’ll first need your own accounts at Apple App Store and Google Play.
You will need to set up developer accounts for both the App Store and the Play Store. They will ask for a small subscription payment. They require you to sign for their TCs, so only an official company representative can do this.
This ensures you own the apps, they are in your brand accounts in the stores.
Apple will require an Apple ID and a Developer account.
Once these are set up and approved, add us as Developers so we can publish your apps in your own accounts. We will show you how to do this.
You’ll need to tell us you want to upgrade to an Enterprise app (using email, our contact form or our 24/7 chat).
We’ll take you through what we need (not much!) and it will take around 2 weeks – monty for Apple and Google to set up your accounts.
Make available all information for Attendees, right in their pockets.
Any venue and event information including registration and travel, facilities, local partners, on site messaging, timetables and much more.
Click on the Pencil icon to edit your Event Information. The is a full text editor you can use to format text, and add images or video.
You can add Sections and Subsections to group your content into easy to read sections (like chapters is a book).
You can toggel content invisible/visible by tapping the Eye icon – enabling you to work on your Event Information until you are ready to publish.
Check out the video walkthru below ‘Adding Menu’ & ‘Adding a Timetable’.
You can add as many as you wish. Each can have it’s own optional Check In/Out.
You have an option on all menus/timetables to add a Contact Trace check in, with a further option to collect data.
Enabling Contact Trace activates a Red button at the top of your Timetable/menu.
Tapping this ‘Checks In’ your User and we record their date and time.
You can then select to message anyone ‘Checked In’ based on the date and time. this is anonymous, we don’t collect User data or make it available, unless you select to;
This is an additional option to collect data, which we hold for 21 days. You can download this at any time based on a search for date and time Users checkin in. So, if you are alerted to a risk of someone attending during X date and time, you can alert your Users who attended, and download and make the data available to the authorities.
You can ensure attendees are checked in by asking them to show you their phone, the checked in screen is Green.
Please see the video ‘Contact Trace’ below.
A quick message is just a Push notification, with no content associated with it.
A Quick message will be sent to everyone with that Event as a favorite. It’s really handy to communicate something quickly.
Messaging has content associated with it, and appears in a tab within your app. An image, a headline, some text and optional PDF or YouTube video can be included.
