[New Features] How to Handle Postponed Events Like a Genius

 

Over the past couple months, many of you have been working hard to reschedule weddings and events for your clients. We know this can be a complicated process, so we just launched Two New Features that will make your life easier and less stressful… 🙂

Check out the tutorial video and helpful tips below!

How to Update Timelines for Postponed Events

Scenario: Let’s say you started a timeline for one of your events, and it just got postponed… No problem! You can update your whole timeline in just a few seconds to reflect the new event date. Here’s how:

  1. In the Edit View for the affected timeline, change the event date in the header to the new desired date.
  2. Timeline Genius will ask if you want to shift all of the timeline items to be consistent with the new event date. Just say, “Yes.”
  3. You’re done. Go have a glass of wine and pat yourself on the back 😀

How to ‘Reactivate’ an Archived Timeline

Scenario: Let’s say one of your events got postponed, and the timeline went to your Archive (because the original event date is now in the past). In this situation, you now have a super-easy way to reactivate your timeline — i.e. to change it back from Archived to Active. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Timeline Archive, and find the affected timeline.
  2. Click the reactivate icon.
  3. Enter a new event date.
  4. Click “Reactivate Timeline.”
  5. Watch the adorable Charlie Bit Me video to enjoy the time you just saved! 😀

WII 055: Danit Zamir Shares an Insider’s Perspective of the Wed-Tech World

Today, we’re so excited to share with you the 55th episode of our Wedding Industry Insider podcast. For this episode, Eddie had the privilege of sitting down with the insightful Danit Zamir, a successful wedding technology business owner and entrepreneur.

Danit is the founder and CEO of Bloomerent, a floral design discovery and market share platform that allows couples to find a florist and share their wedding flowers with another local event — helping couples save money and reduce floral waste. Danit founded Bloomerent in 2014 as a result of the frustration she had with the high cost and wastefulness of her own wedding flowers. She has since grown the company into a well-recognized wedding tech brand that operates in 29 states with boots on the ground in each location.
