Extended selection options with keyword targeting
Thanks to keyword targeting, you can now also make your selection based on keywords. This feature is available for all XING ads. You can combine keyword targeting with all other selection criteria. This allows you to tailor your target group even more precisely to your event, even if you serve specific niches. User targeting is based on job titles and skills.
Edit business events in draft mode
We have great news for organisers: From now on, we offer you the possibility to either publish your event immediately or save it as a draft. This new feature applies to both basic events and Event Plus.
Double opt-in for newsletters
In order to send event attendees newsletters and other news via e-mail, you naturally need the consent of the attendees, and twice at that. The way we ensure that the attendee has really subscribed to the newsletter is by asking him/her to agree to receive the newsletter and then asking him to confirm once again via e-mail. We have now integrated this so-called “double opt-in” into the TicketingManager.
Quick registration on site
What was already possible in the app version of EasyEntry is now also available for the browser version: With quick registration, attendees can buy a ticket on site and use a shortened version of the registration form which is activated specifically for on-site ticket sales.
Import your own promotion codes
From now on, you can import promotion codes into the TicketingManager yourself giving you even more flexibility when creating discounts for your attendees.
Connection with Zapier
We have now officially integrated the TicketingManager into the Zapier system. You can therefore connect it to hundreds of other applications via Zapier. This means that if a new attendee registers in the ticket shop, Salesforce automatically creates a new customer or the in-house CRM automatically receives a new entry. This automated connection is made possible by Zapier, which links the TicketingManager to the corresponding program.
Print badges with Zebra Bluetooth printers
With the new EasyEntry version for iOS, you can now print badges via Bluetooth. All you need is a Zebra Bluetooth printer.
Add attendees via API calls
It is now possible to add a new attendee to an event with a single API call. This change is particularly interesting for organisers who also sell tickets in other systems. It allows you to set up an automated process to add these attendees from other systems to the TicketingManager. Moreover, external service providers can also use this API call. You can find the API documentation in our Developer Zone.
More functions for events including a ticket shop
Integrating a ticket shop into a XING event page now works somewhat differently: From now on, you will no longer create and edit the ticket shop on XING, but directly in the XING TicketingManager. It then automatically displays on the XING event page. This applies to all future as well as previous events on XING. Advantages include additional functions such as a pre-registration list, a draft mode for the ticket shop, and the possibility to integrate the ticket shop as iFrame into your own website.
