New: Updates on Polls, Attendee Feedback Reports, Stage Recording Opt Outs, and More!
Hello! We hope your week is off to a great start. We have some exciting new features to share with you that are now available in your Hopin account.
By the way, with the Holiday season just around the corner, be sure to check out our latest guide on how to host a virtual event party on Hopin!
Polls can be created per Session or per Booth (vs per event)
Organizers now have the ability to make their sessions or booths more engaging by adding polls just for that session or booth. Simply open the polls tab on the right sidebar, choose the Session tab and click “Create a Poll.” Users who enter the session or booth are able to view and participate in the session or booth poll, provided you have made the poll visible to them in Advanced Settings. Available on all plans.
New Attendee Feedback Reports
We know that feedback on your events is especially important. That’s why we released new Attendee Feedback Reports, that show organizers how attendees rate their experience for the event. With these new reports, organizers have more visibility to see what attendees liked and didn’t like, so they can continuously improve their event experience.
Below is a GIF of the feedback report attendees will receive, followed by the form data you’ll receive from your attendees via this new report.
Attendee Feedback Reports are available for plans Pro and up.
Stage Recording Opt-Outs
As an event organizer, you may not want everything broadcasted on your event stage to be recorded. You now have the ability to disable stage recordings. Head to the Stage tab in your event dashboard and uncheck the box “Record this stage?” to disable the recording. Available on all plans.
Add Attendee Profile Pictures
Rather than showing a blank grey avatar screen when your webcam is off in Hopin, your profile picture is displayed instead. This adds a more personal touch to your events when users turn their video off. Available on all plans.
More Hopin Product Updates
You can now disable event chat and stage chat independently. Organizers get more granular options over which chat they want attendees to use and not use at certain times.
Side panel update: the chat tab now has several sub tabs: event, stage/session/booth and direct messages. This makes it easier to keep track of your conversations in the event.
Thanks for reading, and have a great week!
