Event Pages are a great way to create web pages that organize your photos according to a specified date & time range. This is useful when you have events that are not related to your other projects, and need a way to separate out your photos.
If you are an event-based company or a marketing firm, you will often find that your brand page will not be suitable for particular clients to view. This is because your main company brand page will display all public photos under your cloud account, in a chronological order. What happens when you have a set of photos for a client that wishes to see only their own event’s photos, or you do not want to outright display your other work that may be for a competitor-client? In this case, the solution is to use the Event Pages.
Creating an Event Page
In order to create an Event Page, first ensure that you are subscribed to Pro Tools.
- Log into your isnap.com dashboard.
- Go to the Configuration → Events tab
- You will now see the Create Events page.
Below are some details of each field on the Create Event form.
- Select Devices: Check the box of the cloud device(s) used at your event (or rather, during the time frame specified for this event page)
- Event Name: Self-Explanatory
- Event Website: A link to any website you wish to have. It will likely be related to your event in some way.
- Banner Image: This is the event page’s header image, and is required. It is 940 x 340 pixels (jpg or png file format).
- Start / End Date & Time: This is the time frame for when the photos were/are taken. All photos taken in this range will be included in this page. Pay close attention to the specific way the date & time are to be entered.
- Description: A space for you to type essentially anything about the event.
Below is an example of a completed Event Page. For this particular event, the iSnap team brought a photo station out to a charity walk/run. Attendees were able to take and share their photos outdoors as the photo station was connected to a 4G mobile hotspot. Notice the banner image is loaded and all the photos are specifically form the event.
