New Customization Capabilities on the Session Interaction Container
In virtual/hybrid events, interactive sessions have become a crucial component to engage participants and foster meaningful discussions. To enhance this experience further, a notable development has taken place with the introduction of new customization capabilities on the Session Interaction container. This update offers organizers the ability to tailor their session interface by hiding or unhiding tabs and reordering them according to their preferences.
Prior to this update, the Live Interaction container consisted of three tabs, each serving a specific purpose. These tabs were Live Discussion, Questions, and Polls. While these tabs provided valuable features, their static order limited the flexibility and personalization options available to session organizers.
With the recent enhancements, organizers now have the ability to hide or unhide each tab based on their requirements. This customization feature enables organizers to streamline their session's user interface, presenting participants with only the relevant tabs for a specific event. By hiding unnecessary tabs, organizers can reduce clutter and create a more focused and tailored interaction container.
Furthermore, the ability to reorder the tabs adds an additional layer of flexibility and customization. Previously, the fixed order of the tabs restricted organizers from adapting the session interface to their desired flow. However, with the new update, organizers can rearrange the tabs to match their event's structure and priorities. For instance, if questions take precedence over live discussions in a particular session, organizers can reorder the tabs accordingly, placing the Questions tab before the Live Discussion tab.
Finally, the interactions container that was named initially “Live Discussion” can now be renamed:
In addition, these new features have also been extended to the default Session settings. This means that all sessions created after the update will automatically adopt the customized settings, eliminating the need to manually update each individual session. By applying these settings at the default level, organizers can ensure consistency and save time by defining the visibility and order of tabs, but also the interactions container name, universally across their sessions:
