Files & Links

What is the Files & Links Section?

During your presentation, it is likely that there are files or URLS you may want to share with your audience. Files can be accessed and downloaded from the session details pages, so that attendees can readily access assets that you’d like to share with them right from the event app.

Why use Document Sharing?

Extend the conversation past your session by posting additional information pertaining to the session content that attendees can engage with. Post-event attendees are left with their memories of the event, and any take-aways you give them; download-ables often help you to stay connected as they are tangible, helpful assets to the attendee. Here are some things you may want to share post, or during your sessions:

  • Your blog or previous publications.

  • Templates or workbooks for your audience.

  • Your slide deck used during the presentation.

  • White-papers related to the session content.

  • Research, data sheets, or one-sheets.

  • Any additional resources pertaining to your session.

What to Provide Your Event Organizer

In order to use the Files & Links session, you will need to send your organizer the assets you would like to share prior to the event. Here are the accepted file types:

  • PDFs
  • JPGS/PNG Images
  • URLs

* Note: Power Point and Excel are not supported file types, please convert to PDFs before submitting to your organizer.

Live Q&A

What is Live Q&A?

Live Q&A is a feature within the DoubleDutch app that allows attendees to ask questions in the app during a session. Other attendees can then up-vote questions so that the most relevant and important questions bubble up, and can be answered by speakers in-session or at the end of the session.

live-questions

Why use Live Q&A?

Questions often go unanswered during sessions, or attendees are too afraid to raise their hands; Live Q&A gives them a forum to ask their questions openly (and anonymously if they want). This way, no question goes unanswered. Plus, the questions that you don’t have time to answer can be looked at later and answered post-session or event.

How to Use Live Q&A

Live Q&A can be used to actively engage attendees during your session. Here are some ways you can use the feature:

  • Use for pre-session questions that speakers can address during the session; this allows you to review and think about questions before answering

  • You can track questions to send out in a FAQ post-session or event

  • You can notice trends and get ideas about what content might be missing from your session.

What to Provide Your Event Organizer

To use Live Q&A during your session, reach out to your event organizer prior to the event. It is at the discretion of each individual organizer whether this feature will be made available at their event as it requires organizer moderation.
