Gathering the information you require for your festival should be a fairly straight-forward process, providing that we’ve thought of everything that you want to do. One of the things that we feel makes us special is our understanding of what to do with that information, how to use it to best save you time and stress. We also understand that your event will be subtly different from all the others. We believe that the system should work for you, rather than the other way around, and we felt that the addition of our Bespoke Tasks was a big step towards giving you greater flexibility over how the system works. Today we’ve completed another step, in that you’re now able to add your own fields into the fabric of the system.
This is now possible through our Additional Fields functionality, which provide you with the ability to add, edit and manage as many extra elements as you require, simply and quickly. There’s the option to include these fields in the xml feeds* to drive your public website, enabling you to use the system as a complete CMS for your artist/stage and performance content.
You might have a multi-lingual site and need the biogs in both English and Spanish. You might want an ordering system so that you can rank your performers in order of importance. You might have a host of additional demands; content areas that require management, or specific elements that are unique to your event. All this, and more, is now possible.
* the system can provide machine-readable feeds of the latest artist/stage/performance information that can be used directly in the festival’s website, iphone app, etc. See this post for more details.
