Overview of profile pages

Within the dashboard there are three Data Type categories, these are; 'Participants', 'Companies', and 'Items'. Click here to view our Data Types page article and how to populate these three Data Type categories. Once your Data Types have been created, under the 'Data' tab in the navigation bar, you will see these three categories with your Data Types under each of them. When you click into one of the Data Types under either 'Participants', 'Companies', or 'Items', you will land on their dashboard profile page.

Overview of a Participant profile page

1. To view a participant profile, click into the Data Type you have created under the 'Participant' category.

Firstly, you will see 'Basic profile information' when scrolling down this page. You can add a profile picture, the participants' name(s), headline, job title(s), company name(s), location, preferred language in the platform, and their badge scan id.

  • Headlines Limit: 140 characters.
    For headlines, we advise keeping it within 15-20 characters. The goal is to capture attention with concise headlines, allowing users more time for productive meetings. Typically, Grip will structure the headline as 'Job Title at Company.'


3. Next, you will be able to see, input, and edit the 'Summary' field which is displayed on the participants' profile in the event platform.
