Symphony updates 08/10/2015
1. You can now export your event list
Export a list of your events from your dashboard to see what events are taking place when and where. We will be adding attendee figures to this report in one our next go-lives and will also make it possible to export data from archived events – so stay tuned.
2. Introducing Yes/No Custom Fields
Lots of our users use the same questions over again. With the copy event feature, this isn’t often a proble, but for people setting up their events for the first time
3. Re-using speakers is now even easier
We have been looking at how speakers are added and reused in Symphony and we noticed a couple of things we wanted to improve.
a) When you added a speaker to your event this wasn’t stored as a contact for you to reuse. We have now included a tickbox option, so you can choose if you will want the speaker to be available for your next event.
b) We have included a dropdown that automatically loads if you select to add an existing speaker or contact.
Speakers and contacts is an area we want to work on more in future, so if you have any ideas of what you would like us to include, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Send emails by registration status
Do you have an email that you want to send to everyone who is attending? Perhaps you want to send a survey to those who declined your invitation? Now when you send attendee emails in Symphony you can manually select people by booking status.
5. More space for resending Invoices
For the times when you need to send a reminder email, or you are updating a booking on behalf of an attendee and don’t want to send an automated email, you can send a personalised invoice email. To do this click on the invoice number in the bookings tab and click “Email Invoice”.
We made this popup a little bigger in our update so you have enough space to write what you need to.
6. New warning if you cancel a booking
We have added in a warning popup if you click to cancel a booking, just so that you don’t end up cancelling anything by mistake.
That’s it for our updates this week. Don’t forget to email email@example.com with any development requests.
