The corporate feed can be used to share images, videos, links, information, messages, etc. related to an event. Participants can interact with one another on the feed along with the event organizer by commenting and even sharing posted content.
It is also possible to integrate the feed to social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, so posts from those accounts will appear on the content feed from the app.
How do I create posts on the feed?
The organizer can create a post in the feed as well as moderate posts created by event attendees. To do this, go to the dropdown button and click on Event > Content > Feed
To add a new post, click on the + Add post button, then add the contents of the post. You can also add an image or video by clicking on the red button. The desired size is exactly 750x750 (px by px) for normal images, 5MB and 1500x700 pixels (suggested) for animated GIF files, or 100 MB for video files. After doing that, complete this step by pressing the Create button.
Via social media
You can also integrate your event feed with your social media profile and chosen hashtags. To connect them, you must go to Event > Details, and add your social media information in the correspondent space.
Via Virtual Lobby
It is possible to use the News Feed feature in both layouts available for Virtual Lobby.
Click here to learn how to choose your Virtual Lobby layout.
If you are using the Classic Layout in the Virtual Lobby, your event attendees can also add messages to the feed while virtually attending your event. They can simply type their message in the indicated area and then post it.
If you are using the Neo Layout in the Virtual Lobby, the participants of your event can also add posts to the feed while attending your event virtually. They can just type the message in the indicated area and then post it.
Can I disable the Feed in the Virtual Lobby?
Yes! To disable the feed, go to Event > Virtual Lobby > Tools press Edit and uncheck the Feed option to disable it.
How do I pin a post on the feed?
Click on Edit and then check the box of the Pinned column. That way, the post you chose will always be on top of the feed.
How do I edit a post?
Click on Edit, select the post you want and then just make the changes you want.
How do I filter posts?

How do I delete a post?

Can I choose which posts will be visible in the timeline? How can I do this?
To moderate a post created by a participant in the News Feed, simply go to Event > Content > Feed then click on the Approved button.
If you would like to have all posts to be approved before published, go to Settings > Tools. Find, under Control Posts from attendees and Posts on social networks. Click on Edit and disable those two tools. Now, posts will only be published with the approval of an admin.
There are two ways in which you can analyze data from your feed:
- You can track the posts and engagement numbers of your timeline under the Live Dashboard.
- To extract all comments, posts, images, videos and likes, you can click on Edit and then Report.
Feed projection during your event
By clicking the TV mode button, you can broadcast the post’s feed in a slideshow on the screen of the event.
To know more, please read Content Projection.
I removed the hashtag from details but the posts did not disappear. Why?
After removing the hashtag from Details, there will be no new posts from your social media on the event's feed.
To remove old posts, you must delete them from the feed or just moderate them so the participants won't see them.
Whenever I try posting something on the feed via platform it shows an error message. Why is this happening?
In order to post something on the feed using the platform, you'll need to be enrolled in the event. Otherwise, the message "Fill in all required fields!" will appear.
To solve this, verify if the participant is enrolled in the attendees' list.
