Set up the web app layout

Set up the content of the Web App

The Web App uses the same data as the mobile app and vice versa. However, the menu can be configured separately, leaving you to be flexible on what you want to include and what is maybe less relevant, for example because you have the information elsewhere.

You can configure the contents of the menu through the Pages & Structure, tab Web App. Please note you have to publish a release to make the changes visible to your users.

Configure the Menu

Event icon: Above the side menu, an event icon can be added. This image is 120x120 px.

The side menu is fully configurable. A few important points to notice when composing the side menu:

  • If you want to show a daily programme, it has to be a direct link from the side menu. A navigation page referring to multiple programmes will not work. So if you have a scientific and industry programme, you need to create two menu items.

  • To add a page with a news feed only, select the page below Feed.

  • To add the attendee list or social wall, select it below Networking pages.

  • If any page contains a link to a URL, this link will always open in a new tab.

For each menu items, you can configure an icon, similarly to that of the home menu buttons. If you select an icon from the library, it will be coloured with the contrast color set at that moment. 

You can also choose to overwrite the original page name with another name by entering that below Name.

Configure the landing page

For your Web App, you can create a landing page with a news feed, video, upcoming sessions and links to other items within your Web App.


On your landing page, you can choose to automatically display your news feed on the right side of the page, or to only display tiles. The preview in the frame below is adjusted automatically.

Add Tiles

There are different tile options for your landing page:

  • Video: with this widget you can embed a video stream onto your landing page. This can be a live stream or static video. Make sure to have your video uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, as these are the only platforms supported. Additionally, ensure that both the video you are linking and the account which initially published it have their privacy settings set in such a way, that you can view the video on the third party' website - the web app.

  • Upcoming sessions: this widget allows you to select a Happening Now/Next page. The sessions that would show on this page, will be shown as a list on the widget.

  • Menu tiles: Menu tiles are links to any other pages in the Web App. Please note that the page you link should also be added in the side menu. If it is not, you will get a warning. You can choose between different layouts: 4 small, 2 medium, 1 large or 2 small and 1 medium. You can upload a custom image as background of the tile, or choose from a selection of icons, add a background color or label.

Make sure to click Save in the toolbar to save your changes. When configured, the landing page will be added automatically as first page in the side menu. It is then the first page your users will see. A release is needed to push your changes to the Web App.

To rearrange tiles or tile groups, click and hold the dots icon in the top left. Then drag the tile or group to its new position.

To remove tiles or tile groups, click the trashcan icon at the top right.

Embed the Web App

To embed the complete Web App in another web page such as your website, use this code:

<iframe src="" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="width: 100%; min-height: 800px;"></iframe>

Replace the bold text with the URL of your Web App.

If don't want to embed the whole web app, but just a page of it without the side menu, you can use our embed mode. Just add ?mode=embed after the page URL you want to embed and link to that in your iframe.
