Vevox can be embedded as an iframe into webpages or other event apps giving your participants the ability to use the features of Vevox without having to leave your meeting environment.
There are two methods for embedding Vevox with an event app, Anonymous and Identified.
1. Embedding Vevox as an iframe
Firstly you'll need to get the link for the Vevox app.
- Go to the Vevox session in your dashboard.
- Click on the drop-down arrow next to the Session ID in the status bar at the top of the page.
- Select copy participant app link.
The format of the link will look something like this https://vevox.app/#/m/123456789. The 9 digit code at the end of this link refers to the specific 9 digit code of your Vevox session.
You can then use this URL and add it to your embed code in the HTML of your webpage. The final embed code will look something like:
<iframe src="https://vevox.app/#/m/123456789" frameborder="0" width="500" height="800" title="Vevox"></iframe>
Using this URL format it will take your participants to the home screen of the app. There are some extra parameters you can add to the URL if you would like to tailor it further.
- Appending the URL with '/messages' will display the Q&A page of the Vevox app (if Q&A is enabled)
- Appending the URL with '/survey' will display the Survey page of the Vevox app (if a survey is active)
- You can also remove the app bar navigation from the Vevox app if you would prefer to hide the Session ID and the ability for participants to open the navigation bar and logout from the session.
To do this add the parameter '?integration=embed' to the end of the URL string.
2. Identifying participants within other event apps
To identify participants in Vevox with your event app you can use a dynamic URL.
The dynamic URL is a way for the Event App that Vevox is integrated within to pass the participant's first name, last name and e-mail from through to Vevox. Polling and Q&A responses can then be identified during the session and/or in post-event reports.
How do I create a dynamic URL?
First, you must contact the Vevox team at firstname.lastname@example.org to enable your account to allow dynamic URLs to be used.
As described above, copy the web app link to the session which includes the Session ID, this is called the ‘base link’
Next, add the following parameters:
first_name = the first name in the profile (can be edited once the user comes in to the event)
last_name = the last name in the profile (can be edited once the user comes in to the event)
email = email field is populated in the excel report to link the person with their responses, this is invisible in the application and is used as an identifier in reports.
Can I integrate Vevox into any event app?
Where participation is anonymous you should be able to integrate Vevox within any event app. However, we recommend you first check with your event app provider and test thoroughly. There may be settings in place or reasons that mean your event app cannot support an integration.
For dynamic URL integrations, again it should be possible but you will need to speak to your event app provider first.
Can I integrate Vevox within Cvent/Crowdcompass?
Yes, Vevox works in partnership with Cvent/Crowdcompass.
