The mobile app now supports deep links that are scanned from a QR code. These links can open a page or object in the app. If the app is not yet installed, the user will be redirected to the App or Play Store. After opening the app, the event info will open, and after installing the event, the page or object will open. For now, the links have to be generated manually. Later in 2022 support to generate them from the configurator will be added. The link structure is as follows:
To link to a page:
https://[branch io id].app.link/?event=[event id]&page=[page id], for example https://abcde.app.link/?event=6193a74e16f152002c56c88f&page=daily_programme
To link to an object:
https://[branch io id].app.link/?event=[event id]&object=[object id], for example https://abcde.app.link/?event=6193a74e16f152002c56c88f&object=62135b94259a4149ec19e961

The branding options of the web app have been improved:
you can now add an event icon top left
the primary color is used in the app bar
From the configurator, you can upload a default placeholder for the slides and speaker frame. The placeholder will be shown to the attendees on the web app. Within the session, you can still overwrite the slides placeholder with another image.
