Pro Tip: Include Descriptions for Your Schedule Tracks

Follow

Before opening the schedule and scrolling through various sessions, your users may want to know what each track is about. They can then quickly decide and find which sessions they will attend. 

With this in mind, our Support team would like to share a Pro Tip: Use a Custom List to house descriptions about your Schedule Tracks!

How to Include Descriptions for your Schedule Tracks

Note: Create a schedule and set up your schedule tracks before following the steps below.

  1. Add a Custom List to Your Guide
  2. Add List Items: One Schedule Track Per List Item
  3. Link List Items to the Schedule Track Session View

To see how this looks in the app for an end-user, click here.


1. Add a Custom List to Your Guide

In the Guidebook Builder, open your guide and click "Add a new feature" in the top-left corner of the screen.

Add a Custom List; it will appear in the menu to the left side of the screen.

Click on your new Custom List to edit it. 

In the "Settings" tab, you can rename this list to "Schedule Tracks" or something else of your choice.

 


2. Add List Items: One Schedule Track Per List Item

To add items to your list, click "New". Each list item will correspond to a Schedule Track. Type in the name and provide the description text inside the description field. 

 


3. Link List Items to the Schedule Track Session View 

So far, we have a schedule with sessions assigned to tracks, and we have a custom list of descriptions about those tracks. However, these components are not linked to each other yet.

In this final step, we will link your Custom List of track descriptions to the Schedule Tracks themselves. That means a user can read about a track, and then tap a link to view the sessions seamlessly.

In your Custom List of track descriptions, click on a list item. Then click on the "Links" tab.

In the search bar, start typing in the name of the Schedule Track that should be linked here. Click the checkbox to set the link. 

Repeat this process for each of your list items until all of your Schedule Tracks are linked to their track description List items.

 


End-User Perspective

Here's how your Custom List of track descriptions looks to an end-user in the app. Users can read about the track, then tap on the Schedule Track to view the sessions within.
