Top new capabilities of Adobe® Connect™ 9
HTML-based event pages — Templates enable quick creation of customized event pages, including landing pages, speaker information, registration pages, and login pages. Templates can be customized using several rich components, including images, tables, charts, carousels, and other elements.
Template-based email triggers — Email templates can be created quickly and easily using new drag-and-drop capabilities in Adobe Connect 9. In addition to standard email triggers, such as invitations, reminders, thank-you notes, or missed-meeting notes, custom email triggers can be created to go out to specified registration groups at predefined times.
Events catalog — To improve event discovery, Adobe Connect 9 automatically generates a master event catalog listing all events. An event catalog can be embedded quickly into any website using the embed code from the settings. Within the events section of a site, it is possible to create multiple catalogs for each folder, with catalogs providing options to view events by date, topic, or other identifiers. Events can be filtered based on tags, and featured events can be highlighted in a carousel.
Monitor engagement in real time on new dashboard — Watch audience participation and engagement in real time with the new engagement dashboard in Adobe Connect 9. The color-coded meter shows how well your message connects with webinar participants in real time, and tracks key performance indicators (KPIs) at both an individual level and overall across participants. Event hosts can quickly see the number of poll questions answered and additional participant interactions—chat, voice conference, status updates, and others—helping to arrive at an overall participant engagement score that is displayed in the engagement dashboard, with individual engagement levels displayed in the attendee pod. This critical information can be tracked to influence and improve future events.
Analytics powered by Adobe SiteCatalyst® technology — The latest release of Adobe Connect software includes built-in integration with the Adobe Digital Marketing Suite, including Adobe SiteCatalyst, to enable event organizers to analyze participant engagement and identify the most effective meeting elements and topics. For event organizers, the dynamic analytics capabilities provide potent, real-time insight into the performance of individual marketing promotions and their programs as a whole. Optimize events and increase ROI by analyzing detailed event reports and rich graphical interpretations of data generated using Adobe SiteCatalyst technology built into Adobe Connect 9.
Privacy and content controls in recordings — Hide participant and presenter names in a recorded session, enabling it to be shared to broader audiences while protecting the identities of participants. Specific pods such as Chat or Q&A can also be hidden to help direct attention to the most important content.
Pause and resume recording during live sessions — Hosts can now pause and resume recordings to more effectively record a meeting without capturing breaks or interruptions that may happen in real time.
Customize recording indexes — Add custom details such as bookmarks and chapters to a recording index for more intuitive webinar navigation and smoother presentations. Choose the location, the name, or identify important subtopics with chapters and bookmarks to enable users to explore your content on their own with ease.
Increased capacity — With increased capacity of up to 1,500 participants on the Adobe hosted service, a diverse range of meetings, from team meetings to all hands can be run on Adobe Connect. All the rich interaction capabilities like single-click layouts, backstage area, polls, Q&A, etc., remain available to keep meetings engaging.
Advanced mobile support — Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0 frees users from their desktop and brings nearly all desktop collaboration capabilities to the mobile device, for true mobile-to-mobile collaboration and mobile learning. The latest version enhances the rich hosting, presenting and collaboration capabilities that have made it one of the highest ranked web conferencing mobile clients, especially for tablet devices – including the ability to share content from the Adobe Connect server or the local device itself; use whiteboards and annotation tools; change meeting layouts; better manage control over meeting audio and recordings; and leverage breakout rooms and emoticons for mobile learning.
