The Activity Feed

We are excited to announce the release of the Activity Feed module in ExhibitDay.

You can now view recent activity in your ExhibitDay Workspace using the new Activity Feed page.

User Activity Feed

You can Like or Comment on any activity in your feed. By default, when you comment on an activity, the Activity Principal (person who initiated the activity) gets an email notification about your comment; they can then, in return, respond to your comment on the activity. Other users who Liked or Commented on the same activity will receive an email notification as well.

Privacy / Access Control

Like all other data in your ExhibitDay Workspace, the Activity Feed is not publicly available (it is only available to users in your ExhibitDay Workspace).

Restricting Content on the Activity Feed

The content on the Activity Feed can be restricted for a given user to include only the activity for that user. This restriction can be enabled under: Workspace Settings > Users & Permissions.

Activity Feed Content Restriction

Disabling the Activity Feed

If you wish to disable the Activity Feed for your Workspace all-together, it can be done under your Workspace Settings.

Tagging Users as Contributors of Tasks, plus, other Enhancements

We just released the following ExhibitDay enhancements.

Task Contributors

You can now tag users as ‘Contributors’ of a task in ExhibitDay. Contributors are members of your team who are in some capacity involved in (or interested in following) a task. By default, tagged Contributors get email notifications when important updates are made to a task they are tagged in (e.g. when the task gets marked as completed or when a comment gets added).

Trade Show Task Contributors

New Email Notifications for Tagged Users

Users that are tagged as Attendees of an event, or tagged in travel reservations and scheduled Playbook items, now get email notifications once they have been tagged. Like all other ExhibitDay notifications, these new notifications can be configured (enabled/disabled) under My Profile & Preferences > Email Preferences.

Exporting the Events Page

You can now export the view on the main events page to a spreadsheet (.csv format).

Export Events to Spreadsheet

Note: The export function is available to ExhibitDay Workspaces that are on the Premium plan.

Event Star Ratings, Plus, Other Enhancements

We just released the following ExhibitDay enhancements.

Event Star Ratings

Some events are worth going back to year-after-year; others are not. Some events yield favorable ROI; others do not!

Whatever your team’s take on a given event may be, it can now get reflected in ExhibitDay using the new Star Rating system.

To rate an event, go to the event page and use the stars (at the top right of the screen) to specify a rating (0-3 stars).

Trade Show Rating

On the main Events page, you’ll see each event’s rating next to its name. You can use the events filter (top right corner of the page) to filter out events based on their Star Ratings.

Event Ratings

Events Page: Annual Grouping

You can now view a list of your events by year. When viewing your events in List View or Detail View, use the extended menu on top of the Events page tab strip to see an annual grouping of your events.

Events grouped by year

Events Tab Drop-down

When you are on the main events page or viewing a specific event, you’ll notice a new drop-down menu next to the top Events tab. You can use this drop-down menu as a shortcut for adding a new event, or, seeing a list of your 3 most-recently-viewed events.

5 New ExhibitDay Enhancements

We recently made the following Enhancements to ExhibitDay:

User Content Restrictions (for Team Members and Guests)

You can now restrict access to content for Team Members and Guests in your ExhibitDay Workspace. The following content restrictions are available:

  • Ability to restrict Team Members and Guests to only have access to their own Events — Events that the user either created, or they are tagged in (as an attendee, or assignee of a task, or travel reservation, etc.).
  • Ability to restrict access for Team Members and Guests to only have access to their own Travel Reservations (i.e. the Travel Reservations they are tagged in).
  • Ability to restrict access for Team Members and Guests to only have access to their own Playbook items (i.e. the scheduled items in the Event Playbook that they are tagged in).

To manage Content Restrictions for a Team Member or a Guest, go to Team Workspace > Users & Permissions; then, click on the Team Member or Guest you’d like to edit. Towards the end of the screen (right after the Permissions section), you’ll see the new “Content Restrictions” section where you can manage the user’s restrictions.

Asset Search

You can now search for Assets by name (under the [Manage Assets] tab). To find an asset, use the search box on the main Assets page, or, use the “Search Assets” link under the [Manage Assets] tab’s dropdown menu.

Storage Areas

To help identify where things are typically stored, you can now specify “Storage Areas” (areas inside storage locations where assets are typically kept– e.g. “Aisle 1, Bin 3” ). An asset’s Storage Area can be entered by editing the Asset Info (using the [Edit Asset] link on the Asset view page).

You can now assign a Point of Contact (e.g. a Warehouse Manager, or, an Inventory Administrator) to each Storage Location.

  • Logs – history of all transactions and reservations for this storage location.

You can edit the Storage Location’s name and address using the “Edit Location” link (towards the top of the page).
