Well, now you have one more option: you can register individual users to your event just via filling a form on Balloon Manager. Just head over to "Registrations" and click on "Add":

👉 Add questions to your event registration form
new
We're super excited about this one, as it has been one of the most requested features!
You can now add questions to your event registration form. We have a list of predefined questions that you can choose from, or you can even add your own custom question and select the label, placeholder text, and event type of the form field, i.e. text, drop-down, radio button, or checkbox.
Here's a short video that shows how the feature works:
The information that your attendees submit, is also available via the registrations export files 👌
"Cocktail Tables" or "Meetings" or "Groups" or...
new
... anything you like really 😀
You can now customize the title for our Cocktail Tables networking function. Just head over to "Networking" on Balloon Manager and you can set a new title:

Words in the singular (e.g. "Meeting", "Group") work best, and we also apply some smart logic to use the correct form depending on the case.
Enjoy renaming!
Event-specific email fields 📧
new
You can now control the email sender name and email address related to all event communication (e.g. reply-to address) at an event level 👌
Previously, for all event-related communication, we were using the organization details (name and email), but now you can configure this information (it's optional) for each event in "Key Details" on Balloon Manager.
Screen Shot 2021-06-25 at 10
Please, note that the sender email address will still be hello@joinballoon.com . This helps with email deliverability (i.e. making sure emails land in your attendees' inboxes) as we follow all the best practices ✅
Screen Shot 2021-06-25 at 10
If you don't populate these two new fields, we will just continue to use the organization name and email, so you're covered 👍
