Profile Fields: How can I enrich the profiles of my participants via in-app profile questions?
Figure out which additional information about the participants is relevant for other participants and your organisation. Think about the strategic goals of your event and determine in what way the participants can or should be connected to eachother.
For example a multiple choice in sectors, interests, expertise, regions, type of business, role of the participants… You can choose how you showcase this in the personal profile at the participantlist. Only as text or as a filter category.
