In order to edit an EXPO space, you need to register for the event on the Coeos platform and be added as a representative for the space. Contact the event manager if you will be responsible for editing an EXPO space, but have not been granted access to the broadcast platform.
EXPO spaces are a digital space on the platform where representatives of different organisations can upload images, embed videos, edit text, post links, open a forum, start live meetings, etc. EXPO spaces have basically the same functionality but are used in many different ways depending on the type of conference/event/meeting for which the platform is used. Some examples of uses for EXPO spaces are:
- Digital Booths. For example, when a conference has sponsors or exhibitors, EXPO spaces are often used to create digital booths where representatives from different organizations upload marketing content into their allocated EXPO space.
- Scientific posters. When the platform is used for scientific conferences, EXPO spaces are often used to upload posters that conference participants can then read and comment/ask questions about. Each author of a poster will have access to his/her own EXPO space and will upload his/her poster and add a description and links, if any.
- Speaker presentations. When a conference/event/meeting has many speakers, EXPO spaces are often used to create speaker presentations. Each speaker is then given their own space where they can present themselves with pictures and text.
To edit an EXPO space, you first need to log in to the platform and then navigate to the EXPO space you are responsible for. If you have forgotten the URL to the event, try searching for "Coeo" in your email. This is because if you have previously registered for the event or been invited to the event, you will have received an email from us, and in that email you will find a link to the platform.
1.1. How to navigate to your EXPO space
Once you are logged into the platform, click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the page. If you did not upload a profile picture during registration, you will see your initials instead. See example image below.
In the menu that appears, click on "Profile"
You will now see your profile page and the EXPO space(s) you have been linked to. Click on the image button to navigate to the EXPO space.
Now you're in the space. In the example below, content is already added/uploaded, but you will probably be greeted by an empty EXPO space.
In the next steps you will get information on how to add different types of content to your EXPO space. Scroll down the page.
The tutorial videos/texts below explain how to add and manage different types of content in an EXPO space.
At the top of the EXPO space there is room for two pictures. A larger header, and a smaller image that is usually used to display the logo or profile picture.
To add a header, click on "Edit page" at the top centre of the page.
Then click on the "BG IMAGE" button. This will open the file manager on your computer, from which you can browse and select the image you want to upload as a header. Please note that the area for the header image is 10x4. If you select an image with a format other than 10x4, parts of your image will not be visible. The blue box you see in the image below represents the area of the header image. If it is important that your entire header image is visible, you may need to edit the image so that it is in 10x4 format (like the blue area below).
Once you have selected a header image that you are happy with - click "save" to save your changes.
You can upload high-resolution images to an EXPO space. Follow the instructions in the video below to get started. The recommended file formats are JPEG and PNG with a maximum size of 2MB.
You have the option to upload a PowerPoint to your EXPO space. Follow the instructions in the video below. Each individual slide in PowerPoint will be uploaded as a slide in the space, and the slides will be sorted in the order in which they are located in PowerPoint. The maximum file size for uploading a PowerPoint is 150MB.
You have the option to embed YouTube videos into an EXPO space. Follow the instructions in the video below. Note that the YouTube video you embed must be "public", otherwise YouTube will not allow the movie to be embedded on external web pages. If you're the moderator of the account that uploaded the movie, you can change the privacy settings for the clip by signing in to your Youtube account. (English subtitle is available in youtube player)
Notering: I videon kopierar jag en specifik del av en lång inbäddningstext. Här nedan är ett exempel på hur den texten ser ut.
