Cvent's new design experience updates the look and feel of almost all their core products. Users can switch back and forth to the new experience for now, but come Dec. 2021 it will be the only option. Learn more about the navigating the new user experience.
Each Cvent event has a unique URL or Weblink that will become live when the event is launched. At eComm, we use the weblink to invite folks to register for the event - typically through a Marketing Cloud message.
While Cvent has a feature to "process payment at a later time," we never want to enable it. Collecting credit card information to process at a later time doesn't align with CU's approach to protecting cardholders and it should not be enabled under any circumstances. The good news is, by default, this setting is disabled across all events and most users remain unaware of this functionality. Follow these instructions to confirm your paid event doesn't have this feature enabled.
Salesforce Dashboards can provide easy to understand, quantifiable data on Marketing Cloud email sends and Cvent events - among other things. When used in combination with other information and your own criteria of success, it will help paint a more complete picture of your outreach efforts.
eComm is a suite of tools built to support communicators across all four CU campuses, System and Advancement. Before trying to get access to Salesforce, Marketing Cloud and/or Cvent, get a better sense of what the eComm technology entails and how it might be able to support your electronic communication and event needs.
With Cvent, you can translate Flex and Classic events into several different languages for your registrants. Most of the default fields, such as labels, instructions, error message, and validations, are automatically translated, but can be customized. Certain text that is not automatically translated, such text widgets, registration questions, feedback survey questions, session names, etc, will need to be translated manually.
A Cvent license is great for supporting event planners at numerous stages of the event life-cycle, for both simple and complex events. There are certain elements are not included with at typical license, but you can contract directly with Cvent to procure.
