We have now created a new App Area which you can add to the Navigation bar of your event. This area will allow you to share apps with your audience, without directing them away from the Hopin platform, and your event. 

Note: You can only use apps downloaded from the Hopin App Store

To set up the App Area, simply go to your Event Dashboard > Venue > App.

Here, you can choose one of your downloaded apps from the drop-down menu or click Explore App Store to take a look at others you can use in your App Area.

By clicking Explore App Store, you will be taken to the Hopin App Store where you can browse all of the apps available on the Hopin platform. Click on the Categories tab and then under "Event Area" select App Area to see all of the Apps that are recommended for this area of your event.

Once you have downloaded the App you would like to use, you can enter the details needed to set it up.

Note: The information you need may be different for each App. But you can find all the different apps and their respective installation documentation in this article.

You can also name this area anything you like. Simply look for the "Customize" heading and type in it's new name in the field under "Menu Label".
