In case of a 2 way integration we are unable to push back changes into Cvent on the following fields:

  • profileImageUrl
  • homeCountry
  • workCountry 
  • Cvent agenda will create in CMS AFTER the integration is set up - this should NOT be deleted. 
  • You can add as many custom fields as you wish
  • Registration Type can only be linked to a People Group
  • Cvent Custom field can only be linked to a CC Custom field or a Person Field
  • ONLY 1st Name, Surname and Email is automatically pulled through, all other information needs to be set up using this.
  • Only attendees with status Accepted will be added to the cc app
  • If we receive a webhook for a previously created Cvent attendee with event type InviteeOrGuestCancelled or their status changes to other than Accepted, they will be deleted from the app
  • In a 2-way integration we only push back changes for attendees that have been added to the app through the Cvent integration
  • In a 2-way integration if an attendee that have been added to the app through the Cvent integration is deleted from the cms, we don't make a request to Cvent REST API to cancel this attendee on Cvent. If you wish to remove this attendee on Cvent you will have to do it in the Cvent dashboard.
