Welcome to Pathable’s next generation (“vnext”) event app platform! If you haven’t already, you should shortly receive an invitation email with a customized link that will give you access to start setting things up. (Do not forward this email, otherwise you will give others access to your administrative account.)
If you have any questions or concerns, please use the green Support option in your administrative dashboard or email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will respond to you quickly.
Your app has three “experiences”:
- Native app: This is probably what you’re most familiar with. An iOS / Android app, under your name, that can be downloaded from the Apple and Google Play app stores. (Important note: By Apple’s rules, you organization must obtain your own Apple Developer Account so that we can submit your app to the app store. Apple will not allow your app to be submitted under any account but yours.)
- Mobile Web App: This is what your attendees will see if they load the URL for your event on their mobile devices. It is an identical experience to the native app.
- Desktop Web App: This is what your attendees will see if they load the same URL as above on a desktop web browser such as Safari, Chrome or Internet Explorer.
We will need to collect some information from you to build your native app (e.g., the icon that should appear when the app installed.) However, because the mobile web and native experiences are identical, you can go ahead and import all your content, set your design and styles, etc. using the mobile web app.
The first thing you'll want to do is create accounts and send an invitation to anyone on your staff that will be assisting you with setup. Click here to find out how to create accounts for your staff, speakers, and attendees .
