Let's get started! ⚡️
Materials are a great way for you add shareable content (or shareable materials) to your event. We currently have two types:
Presentation Slides: Prepare a presentation for the event.
Video: Share a video during the event.
We make it super easy to get them added! Once you do, they'll be available for you to share directly in the event room itself.
Getting them added!
To start, you'll want to hop into the Event Options by clicking on the button at the right-hand side of the event card and clicking Customize:
From there, you'll need to open the Customize tab and find the Room block where you can add new materials and manage existing ones.
Note: You can add up to 20 individual materials per event.
Add a Slide Presentation
The first type of sharing material you can add are slide presentations.
To add a new slide presentation, go to Presentation Materials and select the Add A Material option.
Select Slides for the type of material and give it a name.
Then you'll want to upload your slide file using the file upload box available. We support KEY, PPT, PPTX, DPS, ODP, POT, POTX, PPS, PPSX, PPTM, SDA, and PDF formats.
It'll take a few moments for the file to upload. Once it's finished uploading, the Add Material button will turn green.
You also have the option to Download Media or Delete Media by clicking on the 3 dots option.
Once it's completed uploading, submit your changes and you'll be able to see it in your list of materials.
Every presentation requires some time to process. Once it's completed, a thumbnail of the slide will appear and the slide count will be added beneath the title.
