One differentiator among many PheedLoop has traditionally had in its offering for events is the ability to implement interactive floor plans allowing for embeddable widgets, live booth selection, navigation, and more. Particularly useful for trade shows.
We’ve always touted how self-serve the PheedLoop platform is, but one aspect of it that certainly wasn’t was the design and implementation of interactive floor plans. It required event planners to send us their floor plans, and our designers re-rendering them in an interactive format. It often required a lot of back and forth, updates, and manual iteration, and although we realize that’s the status quo in our industry, it didn’t align well with our approach to letting event planners take maximum control of their events.
Well, that’s now all a thing of the past. Our new floor plan builder is now live, and it is a tool that allows you to create interactive floor plans all on your own!
Earlier this week, events (mostly ones with approximately 10,000 or more attendees) were experiencing long wait times exporting some specific reports. The reporting functions have been optimized for faster downloads now! If you continue to experience any issues with reports, please let our support team know as soon as possible.
Attendee Matchmaking is a new feature that allows you to curate an experience specific to your event that helps attendees with common interests find each other! It's free to use for events that already have the Advanced (previously known as Group) networking upgrade.
Matchmaking in PheedLoop is designed to work in a way that you define, based completely on the things you believe are important to your attendees. It all starts with you using PheedLoop’s built-in form builder system to create a fully customizable matchmaking survey consisting of multiple-choice and single-choice questions, along with conditional question logic.
Once you do so, attendees visiting the networking section of your event will be prompted to respond to your matchmaking survey. With the help of a little bit of algorithmic magic, we determine a match score for each pairing that results from the combined responses of all the attendees at your event, and give each attendee a real-time list of their top 50 matches!
An issue some events identified which showed up in very random and rare instances involving blank exhibitor logos in the 3D exhibit hall has been resolved. If you see this happen for your event, please re-upload the exhibitor's logo and wait a minute or two. The re-uploads should only be required for exhibitors who have already uploaded logos in the rare and user-specific instances of this issue actually coming up.
We've moved the organization switcher to the header in your dashboard so that it's more visible, obvious, and easier to access. Thanks for your feedback, everyone!
On the heels of the release of our increased file size limit for pre-recorded videos (part of our free Upload & Stream product), we received the request to increase the file size limit for pre-roll videos as well. Good news - we've doubled the size allowance for global and per-session pre-roll videos to 50 MB! Keep in mind that pre-roll videos are meant for short b-roll type footage to promote your event, the session, sponsors, etc. and not to play a full session.
Streaming videos for Upload & Stream is our most significant cost, so our goal is to continue offering it all for free (we know it's one of the big reasons customers love PheedLoop) all while offering more functionality at the same time!
