Navigation icons allow attendees to easily find information with the tap of a button. They’ll be your attendee’s primary means of accessing content in the app. Edit the default icons or customize your own to highlight the most important content.
 

Creating Navigation Icons

When it comes to creating navigation icons, the possibilities are nearly limitless. Follow the steps below to create icons that direct attendees anywhere you want.

1 Navigate to the Navigation Icons section.  After you have logged in to the EventCenter, click your event's name. From the Event Checklist, click View More under Design, then Navigation Icons
   
2 Decide what kind of icon you need. Click Add Navigation Icon. No matter the kind of icon you're creating, they all fall into one of four different categories:

 

   
  • Filtered List Icons allow you to display your content items based on criteria such as their tag or track. These are ideal for when you want to display only one section of your event content, like pages that you've labeled with the topic 'Onsite Tips'. You'll start by selecting pages, speakers, sessions, maps, or organizations as your content category. You can then choose how to filter your content further. The most common options are:   
     
    • Listed by Tags - Show all content from this category sorted by tag. Attendees select a topic tag from the list to see the associated content.
    • With the Tag - Show only content from this category that has a chosen tag applied to it. 
    • Listed by Track - Show all sessions sorted by track. Attendees select a track from the list to see all the sessions that belong to the track.
    • With the Track - Show only sessions that belong to a chosen track. ​
  Filtered List with TagsFiltered List with Tracks
 
  • Top-Level Menu Icons allow you to display different types of related content. Once added, each can be built out further with more URLs, detail pages, and lists. Check out the Social Media icon for an example.


Choose one of these four options and build it out with content however you choose. When you've finished, click Create.
 

3 Choose an image. Your new icon will not appear in your event until you assign it an image. To do so, click the question mark image to the left of its name, then select an icon from the pack or upload a custom one by clicking Choose File.
 

NOTE: No images doing it for you? Click Design in the side navigation menu, then Theme and Icon Pack. From here, you can change the icon pack for more options.

4 Preview your icons, if applicable. If you're using the Dynamic Event Guide, click Preview Icons to check out how your icons will appear in the app and to each attendee group.


Editing Existing Icons

You can always make a quick change or use the default icons as a starting point and alter them as you see fit.

1 Navigate to the Navigation Icons section. After you have logged in to the EventCenter, click your event's name. From the Event Checklist, click View More under Design, then Navigation Icons
   
2 Modify or delete icons as necessary. Click the arrow next to the name to lock the icon from anyone who isn't logged in or only show it to specified groups

NOTE: If you want to require login for the Activity Feed, you will need to turn this setting on in the Social Sharing section of Event Settings.


To change the icon itself, click the image to the left of the name.
