What is new
Event administrators – you can invite other people to any event in the web administration. This way you can split work (preparation of initial screen – Welcome page, content of the message board, audience questions, etc.) without sharing passwords to the same account. See documentation for more details: https://doc.myia.events/en/event-administrators/
Organizations – for organizers that use Myia regularly and have a team of people who collaborate on event preparation, we create Organizations. Members of the organizations share access to all Myia events. See documentation for details: https://doc.myia.events/en/organization/
What has been changed
User profiles – attendee profile definition and profile of the organizer has been merged to the same page for better clarity.
GDPR and event activation – the process of event activation and filling necessary GDPR related information has been simplified.
