Custom Date/Time Field Types

There are 6 different Date/Time field types that you can add to your events.

1. Date

The Date field adds a Calendar control to your events. There is also an optional Notes field that can be used to add notes about the selected date.

2. Time

The Time field adds a time-selector control to your events. The custom Time field also comes with an optional Time Zone field and an optional Notes field.

The “Date + Time” custom field lets you specify a date and a time (i.e. a timestamp). This field provides a calendar control for selecting a date and a time-selector control for specifying a time. This custom field also comes with an optional Time Zone field and an optional Notes field.

Specifying the Location for Scheduled Items in the Event Playbook

We just released the ability to specify the location for a scheduled item in your Event Playbook in ExhibitDay.

The New Location Field

You can now use the new Location field in the scheduled items in your Event Playbook to specify where the scheduled item takes place. For example, for a meeting with a client, you can specify which meeting room the meeting will take place in; or, for speaking engagements, you can specify where the speaker will be presenting.

Rearranging Travel Reservations

Similar to how ExhibitDay tasks can be rearranged on the task board, you can now re-arrange travel reservations (under the Event [Travel] tab). Use the move-arrows (at the top-right corner) to drag-and-drop reservations into any display order you prefer to see them in.

Rearrange Travel Reservations

Note: the functionality for Re-arranging travel reservations is not available on mobile browsers (only available on desktop).

Tracking Connections/Layover Information for flights

We have added new text fields to Flight Reservations in order to track connection information for flights with layovers.

“Attach-able” Custom Fields (file upload control)

When you customize the [Info] and the [Booth] tabs for your events, in addition to the standard text fields, you now have the option to add a file upload control as a custom field. The custom file upload control field allows you to attach documents like your “Insurance Contract Document” or “Lead Retrieval File” to your Events.

Custom File Upload Control

Once you’ve added a custom File Attachment field to your ExhibitDay Workspace, it will automatically show up in your events as file upload control. You can use the file upload control to attach documents under the Info/Booth tabs.

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.

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.

Like most things in life…

“If you can measure it, you can make it better.”

Under the Budget tab of each event, you can now enter the planned budget for the exhibit booth, services, travel reservations, shipments, sponsorships, and other/miscellaneous expenses.
