Basic function of event planning app

Modified on Mon, 25 Apr 2022 at 03:48 PM

Note: The event planning app presented in this article has been created based on the default app template of the app generator. The apps created with the app generator can be customized to meet individual requirements. This guide describes the basic functions of the default app template.


Aim of the app

The event planning app is intended to support planning recurring, as well as one-off events in a structured manner. In addition, event proposals, as well as associated tasks, can be managed in the app.


Procedure

In principle, new as well as known events should be suggested in the app.


If a new event is suggested, the marketing department is informed and evaluates the event. In addition, the marketing department decides whether the event is to be attended actively (with an exhibition stand/lecture) or passively (as a visitor). After all framework data are fixed and the decision whether passively or actively one participates, the planning begins. Responsibilities for planning are recorded.


Once the event has been held, it must be followed up. The follow-up will include documenting an evaluation of the event, which should make it easier to decide whether to participate in the future. If the final evaluation of the event is positive and the event is to be attended again, a template is now created for that event.


App element

New event idea:

A new event idea is created directly in the app. To do this, the idea is next specified with the framework data. This includes:

  • Title of the event
  • Format, theme, etc.
  • Start and end date
  • Location and costs
  • as well as further remarks

Once all the important information has been entered, the next step is to save the request. As soon as this is done, the overview of the event appears, which in turn can be proposed via the document control. With the status change, the marketing department is then informed about the proposal. 


If the meeting was suggested, it is evaluated by the marketing department. Now it is decided whether in the meeting actively or passively one participates or, whether the participation is rejected completely. At the latest after deciding whether to participate actively or passively, the Planning section must be completed. The following is recorded in the Planning section:

  • Who is responsible
  • The exhibition team
  • The presenter
  • The material
  • Set up and dismantling
  • The external contact person

In the Implementation area, all pending tasks and to-do's can now be assigned and tracked.


After the event has been held, the next step is the follow-up. Here the following points are recorded:

  • The number of visitors
  • Number of conversations held
  • Choice: "Would you attend again?"
  • Comments and suggestions for improvement
  • The overall rating


Recurring events:

For events that are attended regularly, it is useful to create a template. For this purpose, a template is created in the app overview, in which all framework data of the event, as well as some standard tasks are preset. This function saves having to create the same event again regularly.


Possible customizations

In the event planning app, no mandatory customizations are required to the application, and it is ready to use.


Before using the app, the marketing role should still be assigned to the appropriate users. In addition, the workflow, of the app can be customized to the company.


This necessary organizational groundwork should not be underestimated or neglected. Consultants with years of experience will be happy to assist with the introduction and individual configuration of the app.
