Released in 2023, these 40 product updates from Pigeonhole Live offer you a toolbox of innovation and practicality. Whether it's a hybrid town hall, an in-person conference, or a virtual team meeting, each feature here is a step towards making your gathering a success! So, let's dive in and discover how you can turn your next event into an experience that leaves a lasting impression.
Pricing and Administration
Check out the new pricing plans and find one that's just right for your event's scale, striking a perfect balance between cost and features. As your event grows, upgrading to a more comprehensive plan is a breeze within the Dashboard, allowing your event to scale smoothly to meet increasing capacity and add powerful capabilities.
Additionally, the Resource Hub for paid plans enriches your event planning with expert insights and tips from our Customer Success Managers, making planning a breeze. For customer communication, our simplified newsletter choices keep you well informed with the latest news, product updates, webinars, and more.
Data Management and Workspace Optimisation
Like you, Pigeonhole Live values security highly as well. Our new data deletion policy makes sure that your data is kept only for as long as you need it, upholding privacy standards and building trust with your attendees. Workspace Analytics then steps in, giving you insights and analytics for your Pigeonholes so you can optimise your next event.
In preparing for audience engagement, it's crucial to anticipate their needs. By viewing the Pigeonhole capacity beforehand, you make sure everyone can join without the worry of overcapacity. Additionally, the flexibility to reorder saved announcements keeps the most important information at hand, making sure your attendees are always well-informed.
User Experience and Customisation
Next, let's make it more personal and engaging! The refreshed Projector Panel adds even more flexibility to your events. It empowers you to customise the sidebars, display sponsorship logos, choose from various layouts, and embed QR codes for effortless joining, enhancing the attendee's experience—whether they’re joining from the start or in the middle.
When it comes to branding, the opportunities for creativity are limitless. Engage your audience with word cloud customisation, aligning the colour palette with your brand's identity for a visually appealing and consistent experience. Additionally, custom branding on Projector Panels and the AWA SSO embed login page strengthens your brand’s presence further.
Personalising the attendee experience is also crucial for engagement. Customisable placeholder text welcomes each attendee, while streamlined registrant profiles make navigation even easier. Simplified profile selection further simplifies the experience, allowing attendees to quickly update their details. Plus, attendee profiles with customisable fields encourage networking, connecting people based on shared interests, for example.
The immediacy of session availability also plays a role in maintaining attendee interest. With the option to make sessions adapt to your event’s duration, you save much setup time. Moreover, by restricting access to the Agenda view during sessions, you keep attendees focused on the present, minimising unnecessary distractions.

User Engagement and Interaction
Transform your virtual waiting room into a hub of anticipation, where attendees begin their interactive journey even before the event starts. Once participants enter, they have the ability to review survey submissions and submit multiple responses, improving the depth and inclusivity of the feedback. This process is streamlined by default submission profiles, perfect for those who contribute frequently, ensuring a more efficient and user-friendly experience.
Zoom's auto-invite function acts like a virtual usher, effortlessly bringing attendees into sessions. This is especially useful if someone misses a session, as the option to cast an ended session ensures no one is left behind. Adding to the engagement, interactive elements like animated voting buttons and streamlined emoji reactions make online polls and chats both fun and focused.
Lastly, the groundbreaking beta AI Translation feature in Q&A sessions overcomes language obstacles, encouraging inclusive, multilingual dialogues. This innovation empowers participants from multicultural backgrounds to contribute actively, significantly enriching the exchange of ideas at diverse, global events.
Event and Communication Enhancement
Elevate your discussions with Zoom Layers for Q&As, bringing each question into focus for better clarity and engagement. Learning becomes more interactive and enjoyable with Zoom Layers for Quizzes, featuring animations and effects that add a fun element! The extended 400-character limit allows for more expressive communication, while role labels enable easy identification of participants, promoting the sense of community.
Keep essential information accessible and top-of-mind with announcement pinning, ensuring crucial updates are not overlooked. The downvote feature allows attendees to prioritise the most relevant questions, and upsized poll images make voting more engaging. Plus, the hide session name option is perfect for maintaining focus during key segments.
For Bizzabo users, the seamless integration of auto-loading Bizzabo sessions streamlines the event experience. Extending custom branding and themes to AWA embed SSO, these features collectively ensure a cohesive, branded, and interactive event experience from start to finish.
Integrations for Improved Functionality
Imagine making your event planning much easier and more effective no matter what tool you use in your event technology stack.
Adding to Pigeonhole Live’s list of custom integrations, SharePoint integration enables your employees to work together in real time or asynchronously, participating in Q&As, polls, surveys, and more. If you're using Microsoft tools, working as a team becomes a lot easier, no matter where everyone is. It's a great way to bring your whole company together, moving in step.
For virtual events, Veertly integration is a game changer. It brings a dynamic twist by adding interactive features like word clouds and quizzes, transforming your online gatherings into engaging and participative experiences. This ensures that online attendees are not merely observing but are fully immersed and enjoying every aspect of your event.
Finally, Pigeonhole Live's integration with Lineup Ninja greatly simplifies event scheduling, allowing organisers to efficiently manage speakers and sessions. This synergy ensures a smooth, well-organised event flow, minimising scheduling conflicts, and enhancing the overall experience for both organisers and attendees.
