The Web App uses the same data as the native app: the programme and pages only have to be added once. However, the menu can be configured separately, leaving you to be flexible on what you want to include and what is maybe less relevant, for example because you have the information elsewhere.

Once Conference Compass has set up the Web App for you, you can configure the contents of the menu through the Pages & Structure, tab Web App. Please note you have to publish a release to make the changes visible to your users.

Availability

If you are still working on the Web App, you probably do not want users to access it already. Therefore, set the Availability to Not available to disable the URL. Users opening the URL, will then see a placeholder instead.

Configure the Menu

Header Image

Above the side menu, an image can be added. This image is 1260x600 px, so the same size as the large event tile. You can re-use that image, or create a new dedicated image for it.

The side menu is fully configurable. You can refer to the same pages you have created for the app. The page title is used as the name of the side menu item. 

A few important points to notice when composing the side menu:

  • If you want to show a daily programme, it has to be a direct link from the side menu. A navigation page referring to multiple programmes will not work. So if you have a parallel scientific and industry programme, you need to create two items for it.

  • To add a page with a news feed only, select the page below Feed.

  • To add the attendee list or social wall, select it below Networking pages.

  • If any page contains a link to a URL, this link will always open in a new tab.

Icons

For each menu items, you can configure an icon, similarly to that of the home menu buttons. If you select an icon from the library, it will be colored with the contrast color set at that moment. You can also upload your own custom icons.

You can also choose to overwrite the original page name with another name by entering that below Name.
