With our Handouts feature, any Hosts/Coordinators can share files directly with their Attendees!

Any type of file ranging up to 500 MB can be shared (exception on .exe file types).

Setting up a Handout

From your Chat Box on the right, you'll want to select the plus symbol (+) located near the message box.

Doing so will showcase a few options, including the option to set up a Handout.

You'll be shown the Add Handout window, with the option to add a file—you can browse to the file or drag and drop the file directly!

Once added, you'll see the file upload and the percentage at which it has completed.

Once it gets to 100% you will have the option to give your Handout a Title—Attendees will see this as the name of the Handout when it is shared.

You can also Download or Delete the file if desired.

Once your Handout is uploaded and you are happy with how everything looks, you can choose one of two options!

Share Now: this will share it with your Attendees, right there and then.

Save: this allows you to save your newly created Handout to share it later.

Saving a Handout will add it as an Existing Action when you select the plus symbol (+) located near the message box.

This is a great option for allowing you to create Handouts ahead of time.

Sharing a Handout

Now that you have the Handout set up, it's pretty easy to share!

If you have saved the Handout while setting it up, selecting the Handout from the Existing Actions will share it immediately!

Once you have shared the Handout, it will appear in the Handouts tab.

On the pop-up itself, it'll showcase the Title you gave it during the setup, a few details about the file including the file type and size, as well as the option to Download the file.

For any Hosts/Admins, it will also show the number of times it's been clicked (which relates to the number of downloads), including the percentage of Attendees that have downloaded it.

Deleting a Handout

You can also delete a Handout after it has been shared.

To do so, simply toggle your Handout then select the More Options (three dots) located at the top-right.

You'll see the option to Delete Handout, which will prompt you then proceed with removing the Handout from your Event.

Just keep in mind that once you delete the Handout, you will have to set it up again.
