Updates on the Go
Event planners and campus event organizers are always on-the-go and making changes quickly. But when it comes to instantly communicating with your attendees, things can get tricky. Whether you remember at the last minute to send students a reminder push notification to bring their résumés to a career fair, or you need to warn your event attendees on the fly of a traffic detour, it’s been near impossible to communicate last-minute changes with app users because it required being in front of a computer at exactly the right time. At Guidebook, we’ve been well aware of this pain point, and we aimed to change it.
With our newest feature, Mobile Admin, you can send announcements, updates, and edit the schedule of your Guide all from the convenience of your mobile device. As your event information changes, so will your mobile app.
So while Mobile Admin is not intended to be a mobile replacement for the in-browser experience of Builder, we think you’ll still find it an invaluable asset for making small changes when you’re on the go. When you need to make on-the-spot adjustments to your guide during the event (like room number changes and sending out last minute push notifications) Mobile Admin is there to save the day, so you can get back to what matters – your event.
Guidebook has always been an essential tool in your event planning toolbox. But in terms of actually updating pertinent event information, you’re helplessly tied to your computer. Until now, making updates required breaking out the laptop, typing in the credentials for yet another wifi network, and hopping onto Guidebook’s Builder to make changes there.
As event organizers, you’re always busy – especially during the big event. Things change all the time, and without access to a computer, you struggle to send updates and adapt as efficiently as possible.
