Image Map Editor

Yes, that image you created with all those sponsor logos on it CAN link to each sponsor’s website! All you need to do is access the Image Map Editor and define which areas you want to include a hyperlink in.

Here’s a tutorial that will walk you through finding the Image Map Editor and how to use it.

Create Hidden Pages

Sometimes your event website may have content that you don’t want everyone to be able to access, like information about an Executive Track or some reminders for your speakers. Create a page of your event website that is only accessible via weblink using these easy steps.

 Display PDFs

After slaving for hours on a slide deck or a sponsorship prospectus you deserve to be able to display your hard work for site visitors without them having to click on a weblink. This can easily be accomplished by embedding your PDF document on your webpage!

You’ll need to use a bit of iframe code but Cvent literally makes it as easy as copying and pasting with these instructions on embedding a PDF.

Update Documents without Breaking the Link

Edits and updates happen but broken links don’t need to! Next time you want to add an updated version of a document to your Cvent site don’t create a new item in the document library, simply replace the previous version with these two simple steps.

In Conclusion
