Benefits of a group user account for buyers
A group user account is designed for groups of people within an organisation that
will benefit from sharing information about the venues and services listed within
EventConnect.com. By adding a new user to your group they will be able to view,
edit and add ‘personal notes’ to any listing within the EventConnect.com search
results as well as turn on and off the preferred supplier ‘PS’ icons. Important:
These notes and PS tags are only seen by you (the administrator) and the people
within your user group.
Group members will only see their own enquiries made in EventConnect however the
group administrator will be able to see all group member information.
By default any new user registration that does not join a group at the time of registering
will automatically be the administrator of their own user group and will be issued
with a group user code that they can provide to those they want to join their group.
Benefits of a group user account for advertisers
By adding new members to your group account you will be able to assign the user
as the contact person responsible for one or more of your venue or service listings.
