Step two: Choose and customise your home screen
You will have access to a wide range of templates to showcase your brand and ensure a seamless user experience regardless of the device they choose to access from.
Important: Consider what the purpose of platform is and what the key success metrics are. This might be watching sessions live, ROI for your partners, pre and post event engagement or facilitating networking. The aim is to make it as easy as possible for your users to access and get involved with the key areas.
The home screen gives you the opportunity to do that. Choosing the best template for you specific goals is an important step.
In the 'Modules' section, select 'Create new module'.
You will see the full list of modules to choose from. Each module serves a different purpose and can be renamed to be relevant to your use case, as well as targeted to be visible to specific groups only.
Select 'Page Builder' from the available list.
Re-name the module to be relevant. In this scenario, 'Home' is the go to. Change the icon or upload a custom icon to personalise further.
When you later create additional modules for your wider content, you will have these same options.
Choose from the available templates. Toggle between home page, info page and miscellaneous templates to find the optimal template for your specific needs.
The intuitive template builder makes it easy for you to upload your logo, background image, change colours, rename widgets (call to actions linked to modules) and make real time edits so that relevant content is linked to the home screen at the right time. You may choose to showcase different content during the initial promotion, compared with what content is profiled during an event or post event.

Make sure to save the template before exiting. Simply hit the 'Save template' button to the bottom right.
At any time, you can check your progress by launching the platform from the dashboard.
