The Home Screen of your event is the first thing your participants access when downloading the b2match mobile event app and registering for your event. The event’s Home Screen serves as a central hub of information, offering access to various content pages.

What is the event’s Home Screen?

The event’s Home Screen features various widgets, each serving as a gateway to different pages with additional information. These widgets mirror the event components found on the event's website, and the configuration process is similar to setting up event components.

To add a widget simply click on the Add widget button in the center of the screen or in the upper right corner of the screen. 

This will open the Add new widget page where you can select a widget that you want to add to the Home Screen.
