HOW TO BUILD A PROGRAM 

1. Create a program

Head to Program -- > Programs and click New Program.

Here you can name your program.

Clicking the orange eye icon will publish the program. This will enable the URL link and set it live. Remember to do this before distributing the program link, so that the link works.

Expand activities is ticked by default to give your customers the full view of the text and photos you have added in your Program. If you have a very large Program, we recommend unticking this.

2. Add general information to your program

Click the edit icon in the Information page section to add additional information about your event.

This could be information about the location of an event or description, nearest car parking facilities, things that the attendee is recommended to bring and so on. 

You can add images, links to other web pages, change fonts, colours, etc.

3. Add activities - scheduled or unscheduled

Scheduled

1. Click to add an activity.

The following dialog will open 👇

The start date is automatically provided by Qondor, as per the start date of your project; this can be amended at any time. The start date and time will be mandatory, and the end date optional.

💡 You can edit the start day and time from the main Program view. 👇🏽

Unscheduled

If you check the "Unscheduled" checkbox, this will disable the date and time stamp. Unscheduled activities will be displayed at the top of the program and will not show a date or time stamp.

📌 We recommend setting only one activity to unscheduled per program and ideally for displaying a welcome/introduction text.

💡 Use tags to automatically include participant information and make it more personal.

📌 If you are adding two or more unscheduled activities, and you need to rearrange the order of them, you can do so by defining their order numerically. Define the number in the sorting priority field in edit activity (shown below):

2. Provide a name for the activity. Expand the 'Show image & description' tab to add your desired image (this is optional). For example, you could include an image of a venue and its description or a meeting point. Only one image can be uploaded and there is one size specification; this is to automatically optimise the image so that your program looks good on print as well as a mobile phone.

You can also add the location of the activity, for example, Restaurant X.

💡 GOOD TO KNOW: When you click save, the 'Add Activity' icon will be pre-selected. This is handy for when you are adding a lot of activities. So just press the Enter key to swiftly open a new Add Activity dialog.

PRO TIP
For locations, insert a Google Maps link into the activity description, so that your attendees can easily find where they need to go.

To do so: Click Insert --> Insert/Edit Link. Paste the URL and choose the text you would like to be displayed in place of the link.

4. Multiple activities, days and programs

You can add as many activities, days and programs as your event requires. 

Program Settings is where you can control who has access to programs and how they can access it.

PROGRAM DESIGN

The design of your program will automatically have the look of your brand. (Default colours are set according to your office.) However, you may need to adapt the design to your client's brand.

To change the design, head to Program Settings --> Design. Here you can see a mobile preview as you edit!

You have the option to upload your client's logo, define colours and fonts.

When you click on the colour palette icon, Qondor will indicate where the colour will be applied in the program.

Default colours are the colours in your office, Recently used colours are colours that have been used in your project.

TEXTS

Click onto the Texts tab to rename the texts for the Information page and Files on the side menu and the heading on the 'Information' and 'Files' page.

ADD FILES

You can easily add or delete downloadable files to/from your program, by heading to Program --> Files. Once added, the files will immediately reflect onto your program.

CREATE ADDITIONAL MENU ITEMS

If you need to include more information to share with attendees, you can create items to display on the side menu on a program by creating a content page in Menu items and publishing it to Program.

Here's how additional menu items and a content page will look in a program (the below screenshot is a mobile view):

VIEW OR COPY PROGRAMS

👁️‍🗨️Click the eye icon on the right to preview programs.

🗒️Click the file icon in the middle right to copy programs.

🗑️Click the red bin icon in the last row to delete programs. (NB. Once deleted, it cannot be restored.)


DISTRIBUTE A PROGRAM

Now you're ready to share your wonderful program! Find out how to distribute your program here.

PROGRAM TIME ZONE

What if the program user/recipient is viewing the program in a different time zone?

The program will always display activity times in the local time of the device the user is viewing the program on.
