Custom Asset Fields

Under the ExhibitDay Enterprise plan, you can customize the properties of Capital Assets (like your booth or displays) and Collateral/Multi-quantity Items (like giveaways and swag) by adding Custom Asset Fields. These custom fields can be used to capture relevant data that best support your organization’s inventory management processes.

To add custom fields to the Asset information tab, go to Workspace Settings > Workspace Customizations > Customize Asset Info tab. There, you can add any number of custom fields (e.g. text field, date field, dropdown, file attachment, etc.) to your assets in ExhibitDay. You can also change the order in which the fields appear when you view the Asset Info tab (by grab-and-dragging the handle to right of each field) . Note: any change you make on this page will automatically apply to all of the assets in your ExhibitDay workspace.

Copying Asset Reservations From Other Events

To save some data entry time, you can copy asset reservations from another event that has similar assets reserved. Use the extended menu of the “Reserve an Asset for this Event” button on the event “Asset Reservation” tab in order to start the copy process.

Copy Assets From Another Event

Once the copy dialog appears, select the event you would like to copy asset reservations from. Then, select each asset reservation you would like to copy over and enter the reservation details. When you’re done making your selections, click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the dialog to complete the copy process.

Import Assets From Another Event Dialog

Note: the ability to copy asset reservations from another event is only available if you are on the Premium or the Enterprise plan.

Filter Travel Reservations by Traveler

You can filter the event Travel Reservations tab by anyone who is tagged in your travel reservations. Use the filter button at the top-right corner of the event Travel Reservations tab to filter your list of reservations by traveler.

Asset Weight, Dimension, and Storage Footprint

You can specify weight and dimensions (L x W x H) for an asset under the asset Info tab. Additionally, you can specify the Packaged Weight and Dimensions for the asset. Packaged Weight and Dimensions (L x W x H) are the weight and dimensions of the asset when the asset is packaged/unassembled (while in storage or during shipment).

Asset Weight and Dimensions

Storage Footprint

The Storage Footprint is the amount of space (volume) this asset occupies in storage.

Storage Footprint for Capital Assets

When viewing a Capital Asset (single-quantity items like your booth and display), the Storage Footprint is displayed underneath the Asset’s Status (right after the asset information).

The Storage Footprint for Capital Assets is calculated based on the asset’s dimensions.

Capital Asset Storage Footprint

Storage Footprint = Length x Width x Height

Note: If Packaged Dimensions are specified for an asset, then Packaged Dimensions will be used for the calculation of the asset’s Storage Footprint. Otherwise, the Item Dimensions will be used for the calculation of the asset’s Storage Footprint.

Storage Footprint for Collateral/Multi-quantity Items

When viewing a Collateral/Multi-quantity asset (like swag and marketing material), the Storage Footprint and the Projected/Future Storage Footprint are displayed underneath the Asset’s Quantity in Storage section of the page (right after the asset information).

The Storage Footprint for Collateral/Multi-quantity assets is calculated based on dimensions and quantity in storage.

Storage Footprint for Collateral Assets

Storage Footprint = [Quantity in Storage] x Length x Width x Height

If Packaged Dimensions are specified for an asset, then Packaged Dimensions will be used for the calculation of the asset’s Storage Footprint. Otherwise, the Item Dimensions will be used for the calculation of the asset’s Storage Footprint.

Note: Typically, Packaged Dimensions are only specified for Capital Assets (single-unit items like your booth, display and furniture). For Collateral/Multi-quantity items (like swag and marketing material), Packaged Dimensions can be left blank. But, if you would like to enter the Packaged Dimensions for a Collateral/Multi-quantity asset, please enter the Packaged Dimension of a single unit of the item (not the Packaged Dimensions of a group/pack of the item); this is because the calculation of Storage Footprint for Collateral/Multi-quantity items will take into consideration the quantity of the item available in storage – meaning that if you enter the Packaged Dimensions of a group/pack of the item, the Storage Footprint will become erroneously inflated.

Changing Units of Measurement for Asset Weight and Dimensions

You can change the units of measurement for asset weight and dimensions under Workspace Settings.

Announcement Messages on Event Tabs

Available under the ExhibitDay Enterprise plan, event tab announcements are brief messages that you can place at the top of various tabs of a given event. These messages can be used to convey information about the event itself or special instructions for a given tab to users in your ExhibitDay workspace when they view the tab.

Examples:

  1. You can add an announcement to the top of the “Event Information” tab with the message: “As a Gold sponsor of the event, we get access to meeting rooms A, B, and C during exhibit hall hours.”
  2. You can add an announcement to the “Travel Reservations” tab with the message: “In case of reservation issues or a mix-up, please call the Travel Agency directly — (800) 555-1212”

Adding An Announcement Message

Announcements messages can be added to event tabs from the “Announcements” section of the “Event Settings” tab of a given event.

Add Announcement to Event

Note: Any announcement message that you add to a tab of a particular event appears for that event only; it will not appear for other events in your workspace.

Viewing Announcement Messages on Event Tabs

Once an announcement has been added to an event tab, it will appear at the top of the tab you placed it on. All of the users in your workspace (who have access to that tab) will see the announcement when they visit that particular tab of that particular event.

Travel Announcement Message

Pro-tip:
When you copy/duplicate an event, all announcement messages for the event will also get copied over to the new event. So, for future events that require the same announcement messages, you can simply make a copy of an event with the desired announcement messages.
