Sort Your Sponsors
We know that having a custom sort oder for sponsors is crucial for some events to show the most valuable sponsors first. Since today, all Premium and Professional organizer accounts have the ability to sort their event sponsors in a custom order. You can now drag and drop the items on the dedicated sort overview page via the context menu.
Coverage Open Graph Images & Speakerdeck
From now on, we show Open Graph images for generic website links on all event coverage items. This results in a more consistent, nicer layout and adds more context about what to expect from a coverage link.
We also added support for Speakerdeck slide decks which now will render in a custom layout, have some special functionality, and such links are now categorized as “Slides”. We show a direct link to the PDF slidedeck on our cards, if provided, so you can easily access slides of an event in whatever way you prefer to view the content.
You can see examples of Speakerdeck coverage on the webconf.asia 2017 event in Hong Kong or the ADDC 2017 in Barcelona.
- We now allow creators of event coverage items to view their own entries if a user is on a free account.
- We don’t show a note anymore for events not providing a Code of Conduct after receiving feedback from event organizers about this matter. We value the existence of a Code of Conduct and recommend organizers to add one to their event but don’t want to diminish the quality of an event that does not provide a Code of Conduct. We still show the Code of Conduct if one exists so attendees or interested people can easily see if an event has one or not.
- We improved the layout of our modals to work (better) on smaller screens and optimized the available space on the viewport to make content in modals more readable.
As always, this post is only about the features we finished and released already. Come back to see what we might call for next week.
