NEW & Improved Speaker Portal is Now Available on PheedLoop Dashboard!

In today's world, events have become an essential tool for businesses to connect with their target audience. However, organizing events can be quite challenging, and one of the most significant challenges is managing speakers. PheedLoop's Speaker Portal is the perfect solution for event managers who want to streamline the process of managing their speakers. With that, we are thrilled to announce the release of our new and improved Speaker Portal. 

The Speaker Portal is an essential tool for event managers and one of our most popular features since our beginnings back in 2015, allowing planners to manage all aspects of their speakers' participation in their event. With the new and improved Speaker Portal, PheedLoop has added some powerful features and improvements that make managing speakers even easier. In this blog post, we will discuss the top three features of the new Speaker Portal and why they matter.

New Speaker Portal Overview 

First and foremost, we want to emphasize that all of the features and capabilities from the existing Speaker Portal are carried over to the new version. This includes Profile Editing Capabilities, Session File Uploads, Task Management, Session Editing, among others!

Our team recognizes the importance of maintaining continuity in the event manager's workflow, and we have made every effort to ensure that there are no changes to how you use this system. If you're interested in learning more about the Speaker Portal's capabilities, we encourage you to check out our HelpScout article.

Top Three Features

Simpler Design

One of the most noticeable changes to the Speaker Portal is its simpler design. The new UI is cleaner and more straightforward than before, making it easier for speakers to navigate and manage their event experience. The interface is also fully customizable, allowing event managers to change the color scheme, look and feel easily. Advanced users are also able to edit the HTML, CSS and JavaScript for the Portal, allowing for further control over its customization, look and functionality. 

Accessibility and Translations

The new Speaker Portal is fully WCAG 2.1 AA compliant, ensuring that everyone can use it, regardless of whatever accessibility requirements they may have. Additionally, content can be translated into 15+ different languages, making it easier for event managers to connect with speakers from different parts of the world. These features are especially crucial for global events that attract attendees and speakers from all over the world!

Live Polls and Q&A

The most notable feature of the new Speaker Portal is the ability for speakers to create live polls and manage Q&A within their own Portal. This feature requires the Audience Interaction Power-Up, and applies to both the Virtual Portal and Event App. This feature is particularly helpful for in-person events, making it easier for speakers to create polls and answer Q&A without having to leave their Speaker Portal.

Benefits of the New Speaker Portal

To summarize, the new Speaker Portal offers several benefits for event managers, including:

  • Improved Workflow: Streamline the process of managing speakers, making it easier for event managers to organize their event. With all the speaker management tools in one place, event managers can save time and focus on other essential tasks.
  • Better Communication: The Speaker Portal allows event managers to communicate effectively with their speakers. They can send messages, updates, and announcements to their speakers through the Portal, ensuring that everyone is on the same page.
  • Enhanced Accessibility: The new Speaker Portal is WCAG 2.1 AA accessible, ensuring that everyone can use it. 
  • Multilingual Support: Display the portal in whatever languages are necessary for your audience, making it easier for event managers to connect with speakers from different parts of the world.
