ROOM NAVIGATION

🧭 Enabling Room Navigation

If "Enable Room Navigation" under "Interaction" is checked, your attendees will be able to self-navigate into different rooms.

Keep in mind that you can still go into certain rooms (e.g. a presentation room) and change the room settings to hide the room navigator list on the left-hand side.

To change the way that your rooms appear in the left-hand rooms list:

  1. Click on "Names" next to "Room Navigation Style" in the Workspace Settings.
  2. Select an option from the dropdown (e.g. Images, Names and Images, etc.)

For larger events, the "Map Room" style is a custom room that will function as a map for your space.


🔒 Hide Room Navigator

If you hide your room navigator list on the left-hand side, people won't be able to navigate away from that room.

To hide the room navigator list and "lock down" your room:

  1. Click on "Room" in the menu and select "Settings" or click on your room's name in the left-hand room navigator list.
  2. Search for "Navigation" in the Room Settings or scroll down until you see the "Navigation" section.
  3. **Check the box next to "Hide Room Navigator."

🕵️‍♀️ Show in Room Navigator

By default, every room in ohyay is visible in the room navigator list on the left-hand side (provided that room navigation is enabled in the space).

If you'd like to have a private room (e.g. an organizer's room or tech support lounge), it can be useful to turn off the room in the room navigator list.

To hide your room from the room navigator list:

  1. Click on "Room" in the menu and select "Settings" or click on your room's name in the left-hand room navigator list.
  2. Search for "Navigation" in the Room Settings or scroll down until you see the "Navigation" section.
  3. Uncheck the box next to "Show in Room Navigator."

🗺 Making Lobbies and Maps

Creating a virtual lobby is a great way to give your guests a bunch of rooms to pick from. With a lobby experience, you replace the room list on the left-hand side.

To create a virtual lobby:

  1. Click on the landscape icon on the top left of your screen to add a photo element, which will open up the Asset Library.
  2. Cick on an image of a room in your space that you'd like guests to navigate to.
  3. Click on the "T" at the top left of your screen to add a text element and type in the name of the room. Drag it towards the bottom of the image.
  4. Click on the image to pull up its settings in the right-hand panel.
  5. Search for "link" in "Search Properties" at the top of the image's settings.
  6. Click on "(None)" next to "Linked Room" in the image's settings and select the room to which the image should link.
  7. Repeat the steps above until you have as many rooms in your lobby as you'd like.
  8. Click on "Room" > "Settings" in the menu. Check "Hide Room Navigator," since this room will now serve as your guests' navigation.
