We have introduced a new option in the manage attendees dialog to allow hosts to create speed networking sessions by shuffling all participants in the networking area.
When you click this option, you will be asked about the size of each conversation group. It can be a number from 2 to 4.
After confirming the shuffle, all users in the networking area (in calls or not) will be shuffled in new groups of the size indicated.
This feature is useful if you want to create rounds of speed networking. Together with the broadcast messages, you can notify users that a new round is going to start in a few seconds. It's put to you to manually control when to start a new round via this new dialog.
With our focus on security, several improvements were made to our APIs to make sure they are in line with the restrictions on our web app.
We have added a new way to move attendees between locations with a single view in real time.
In the manage attendees dialog, we:
- Changed the drag and drop to Move in bulk, with the same behavior as before, allowing users to move several users in a bulk mode
- Added a new option Move one by onethat we explain further in this update
In the new
Move one by one, the operator can select the locations to filter out and then drag users between the different locations selected.
For each participant, you can simply drag it and move to the new location. Once you do it, you will be prompted to confirm the move and if you do it, the user will move immediately to that location. The same screen will be updated and you can keep managing other attendees.
Besides this drag-and-drop functionality, you can also promote users to host/speakers by clicking with the right button of your mouse on the respective user. The following options will be available:
- Move to
- Set as host/Remove from host
- Set as speaker/Remove from speaker
- Set tags
- Kick user
You now can use the keyboard to use the navigation bar and also the avatar menu.
- Use tab / shift tab to navigate on the navbar
- Use space or enter to activate navbar entry (as per normal accessible button)
You can now make sure a user only adds the events to their calendar after it has been registered to the event.
This will make sure the add to calendar button does not appear on the registration page.
You can hide the social media buttons after the user registers by going to the Configuration and selecting:
You can now hide the button to leave the main stage:
Now you can enable a feature that bypasses the prompt asking if the user wants enter the a new room.

We have enabled the possibility to choose the initial location of a user when it enters the event.
You can change the initial location by going to:
