While in the previous version, the platform would randomly match attendees for a short one-on-one video call, now that matching can be based on a set of criteria which you choose.
How to use ‘Smart Matching’?
After creating your Speed Networking event on the platform, click on Matching Options under Registration Settings on the Event Management page. Then, under Matching Type, select ‘Smart Matching’.
At this point, you can start adding the rules on which basis the matching happens. This configuration is based on the fields that you have added to your registration form, ticket types, and attendee categories. The platform marks the fields that you use for matching on the registration form.
For each ‘rule’, using the dropdown menu, select a field from the registration form and then choose the matching criteria, e.g., match similar, match opposite, etc. Checking the ‘Strict Rule’ box means that the event will end If there are no matches for this rule. Otherwise, the matching will revert back to being random if there are no matches for the rule. You can always remove a rule by clicking on the trash icon.
