Obvio and AEvent are like a match made in heaven for your multi-day online events!

You get the abilities of Obvio to create an interactive dashboard and interaction level unheard of with how they're able to create their online events. Pair that with AEvent's Omni-Channel Behavior based messaging abilities, along with total Automation of the event presentation's itself, well your challenge just got a WHOLE LOT EASIER!

Delivery Platform:

Adding your Obvio Event to AEvent

To pair up AEvent with Obvio, we recommend first creating your Event with Obvio.

Setting up the Date/Time, Designing your Dashboard, and creating your Zoom Area/s. (link to Obvio Initial Dashboard Creation Tutorial ).

If you are hosting multiple "Rooms or Stages" please create your Zoom Areas with a naming structure that you can follow when attaching this event to your AEvent timelines.

(Each Zoom Room will need a separately attached event within AEvent. We'll get into that in the next tutorial).

In order to add your Obvio Event Integration you will need to first navigate to Integrations within AEvent, click Add Integration and then search / select Obvio.

Then name your integration as you see fit, and click 'Add'

When you click on 'Add' a pop-up will appear.

Now please open a second tab and login to your Obvio account. Then open the event you are working with.

And navigate to Attendees ➜ Services

Within Attendee Services, you need to click on Access tokens, then Create (if you have not already created an Access token for this event.

Then copy your access token back into the AEvent Popup, and click Yes, Continue.

Once your Obvio Event Integration has been successfully added, you will be see it's Connected state, and you are able to click on 'Test'.

A successful connection will yield a positive test result. Congratulations, your Obvio Event Integration is now successfully connected to AEvent!

Creating a Multi-Event Timeline for use with Obvio

It is highly likely that if you are using Obvio and AEvent, your plan is to have an online series that will run over a several day time-span.

In this short tutorial we will go over the steps to setting up a 7 day workshop.

The first 6 days will be entirely automated by AEvent, and the 7th day will be hosted live by the presenter on the Obvio platform.


Scheduling your AEvent Timeline with your Obvio Event

When scheduling your Obvio Event with AEvent the process is slightly different than when scheduling a normal Timeline.

First, BEFORE scheduling ensure that both your AEvent Timeline and your Obvio Event are ready to go, the Zoom Areas have been created inside your Obvio Event, and the proper time-range is good.

Browse to Schedule within AEvent, Select your Timeline relating to the Obvio event you are pairing, then click on the little clock icon to ask Obvio which Rooms are available.

Once you've selected the room you want to pair up, set the time and date in which you want this webinar to take place (this MUST be within the time range defined within your Obvio Event).

Once set, simply click on Schedule, and your Obvio Event will be fully automated by AEvent!

NOTE: if you have multiple rooms that needs to be covered, you need to repeat this process for each room. If this is a multi-day event timeline, when scheduling you need to select the time in which you want the "Main Event" to occur (usually the first event).

How to remove your Obvio Integration from AEvent after your Event

Because of how an Obvio + AEvent integration works, we recommend removing your integration once your event has completed. The reason behind this, is that each and every new event with Obv.io has a unique API key that needs to be added to AEvent as a new integration.

To remove your Obvio integration you need to navigate to Integrations, locate your Obvio integration and click on the trashcan icon.

You then will be prompted to confirm deletion.

(NOTE: Removing this integration will immediately effect it's use with any timelines that it is active in or any events it is operating with)

Once you confirm removal, the integration within AEvent no longer exists.
