Action Buttons allow you to link external or internal URLs for attendees within your Sessions.

These can serve many different purposes – directing attendees to their next session with one click, sending them to an external site to collect donations, linking to a survey or even to connect with an exhibitor in Exhibitor Sessions.

You can have up to 6 Action Buttons per session.

Application: Web

2. From your Event Home Page, Click on the Session you want to add Action Buttons to or Full Schedule:

3. If you navigated to the Full Schedule, click into the Session that you would like to add the Action Button(s) to:

4. Click Edit in the top right corner:

5. Under the Viewing Screen click on “Add Action Button”:

6. Enter the text that you would like displayed on your Action Button in "Text" area.

Note - it must be 30 characters or less.

7. Select the Background Color that you would like your Action Button to be. If you would like, you can use a HEX#, RGBA, or HSLA code for this.

Note - the text color will automatically adjust and is not customizable.
