Take guide management to the next level with Guidebook's Mobile Admin feature. You can send push notifications and make edits to your schedule directly from your mobile phone.
Using Mobile Admin
Download the guide and make sure you're logged in to your account. In the navigation menu, you will see a special “Admin Tools” module at the top of the guide menu.
From the Admin Tools module, you’ll be able to perform the following actions.
Send or Schedule a Notification
Note: This component will only appear if you have an Inbox module added (and set to “enabled”) in your guide menu.
After tapping on the “Notifications” item, you’ll be taken to the “Compose a Notification” view. In order to send a notification, you must fill out the “title” field (maximum of 72 characters). You may optionally include a message body of up to 1024 characters or choose to the notification with a push alert. Please note that only the notification title will be visible on a device lockscreen, so it’s best to make it as descriptive as possible: “Room Change: 10am sessions moved to second floor” rather than “Schedule update”.
If you’d like to send the notification immediately, tap the “Send” button, otherwise toggle on the “Schedule for Later” option and pick the appropriate day and time before tapping the “Save” button.
Provide the Title and Message of your notification. You can choose to send this notification immediately or schedule it for a later date and time. Click here for more details: Using the Notifications Feature.
Note: You will need a schedule in order to edit sessions in your guide.
From this screen, you will see upcoming sessions within 3 days of the current date. Tap on a session, and you'll be able to edit several session details:
You can also delete the session by clicking "Cancel Session" at the bottom. Be sure to hit Save.
After making edits here, you'll need to hit "Publish Updates" on the guide overall.
This button will appear on the main "Admin Tools" menu.
I don't see the Admin Tools button in my guide.
Make sure your guide is published on the Plus, Premium, or Branded level. Verify you are a Guide Administrator. Then, make sure you're logged in. Also, you may need to publish updates to the guide in Builder for the button to become visible.
If you are on the Branded plan and are still stuck after confirming all of the above, please reach out to your Account Manager to ensure your app is up-to-date with support for this tool.

After making any changes, always remember to "publish updates". Then make sure you have a strong network connection so you receive these updates. Try tapping the "refresh" arrows in the main menu or closing & re-opening the guide as well.
