What's New From Map Dynamics in July 2020



More good news, friends!

The Map Dynamics team is proud to announce an official partnership with the Association Executives of North Carolina!

We have enjoyed working with AENC and its members for many years and look forward to expanding our commitments to provide an online trade show resource year-round.

Thank you for this opportunity, AENC. We are excited to support the community and events in new ways into 2021!

 

Product Updates

 

ADMIN

  • "Public Show Link" has been replaced with "Event Home Base" on the show dashboard

 

ATTENDEE MANAGER

As was noted in an update late last month, the new Attendee Access Manager was launched in July. This was a big update that is detailed in this article about access levels for attendee content restriction, and this article about the new features. Features launched include: 

  • Attendee Manager
  • Attendee Completeness Check
  • Attendee Emailer
  • Attendee Account Sync for Exhibitors and Speakers
  • Event Access Restrictions
  • Schedule Track and Sessions Access Restrictions

Additionally, the option to give show managers the ability to delete discussions, archive discussions, lock them from ALL participants or lock them from anyone not currently in the room is now available in the Attendee Access Manager.

To set it up, check the box next to their account. On the front end, when looking at a discussion the Discussions Admin will have a set of tools visible in the right-side menu.  Each option also has an explanation bubble next to it.


New features make discussion moderation a snap!
