Overview of the Meetings pages

The meetings pages sit under the 'Networking' tab in the dashboard. This is where you can create, configure, edit and export Meetings and Meeting Locations within your event.

If you’re looking for the Global Meeting settings, to control Multi-User or Instant meetings, you’ll find these options on the Event Setup page.


In this article we will cover:


The Meetings List page

1. Under the 'Networking' tab, click 'Meeting List'.




2. On the meetings list page you will see all the meetings that have been accepted, declined, or pending. You can sort and filter the data in the table by clicking on the columns and choosing your preferred view.

3. You can also search across all columns by typing into the large Search field. This is a great way to quickly find meetings that all involve a particular user or company. Note that the search will only match against columns that you currently have selected, to avoid matching with data that you can’t see.

4. There are more columns available but not shown by default - to show and hide columns, click on the ‘Columns’ button on the right-hand side.

5. There is also a Meeting Stats panel on the right-hand side. This is very useful in conjunction with the search and filtering options, and allows you to quickly pinpoint how many meetings of each status are currently being shown.

6. To create a meeting on behalf of a participant, click the 'Create Meeting' button.




Fill out the required fields shown in the image below, and click 'Save'.

Note that you can add a ‘Meeting Personal Message’ to this page, but after creating the meeting you will not be able to see or edit this message. This is to prevent Attendees’ personal messages being visible without their consent.

Note that if you choose a date and start time that is in the past, you will be warned that the meeting you’re creating has already happened. You can continue to create it if needs be, however the meeting participants will not be notified, to avoid confusion.

7. On the meeting list page you can also create multiple meetings on behalf of a participant. Click the 'Create Multiple Meetings' button.

To create multiple meetings at once, add the meeting organizer and the recipient(s). Click the 'Add meeting' button to add additional meetings with new recipients, the organizer will stay the same, you will just be adding different recipients to the additional meetings. When you create multiple meetings it will auto-populate the meeting organizer and recipient(s) schedules in the default meeting length (more on this in the Meeting Settings section) that they share. You can then go into the individual meeting and change this to a specific time if needed. Within the event platform the organizer or recipient(s) can also request new meeting times.

8. To delete a meeting, simply select the meeting by clicking the checkbox, then click the 'Delete Meetings' button.

9. You can click on the meeting to bring up its details. Here you can update any of the meeting’s details, change attendees’ statuses, and mark them as having ‘arrived’, even if that meeting has already happened.

Do note that if you modify a meeting that has already started, the recipients of that meeting will not be notified of your changes. This is to avoid confusion where they may see notifications coming in for meetings in the past.

10a. To export meeting analytics, click the 'Export Data' button. You can choose to export all columns available by clicking the 'Export all Columns' button, if you leave this toggled off it will only export the columns displayed in the table view. You can then select the export format, the two options are CSV, and XLSX (Excel).

Default location settings tab

Meeting locations can be created either manually by you in the Locations tab, or they can be created automatically by Grip. This is usually the case when your event features exhibiting companies that have physical booths or stands, where meetings can take place.

This page allows you to set the default settings that will be used for any Meeting Locations that are created automatically by the system. Please speak to your Grip Delivery Manager or Customer Service Manager for details about how to import Meeting Locations with Companies, or use the special “booth” profile field when uploading Companies via the CSV Uploader. 

Please note the following points regarding automatically-created Meeting Locations:

  • Meeting Locations that are created automatically are always of the ‘Restricted’ type, as they are attached to one or more profiles for private use.
  • Meeting Location names are set as part of the import process.
  • Changes to the Default Location Settings will only affect Meeting Locations created after the point where the settings were saved.

Please refer to the table below for explanation about the individual controls on this page.

Setting Explanation
Capacity Choose ‘No Limit’ to allow any number of meetings to be booked at this location.
If you want to limit the location to a maximum number of meetings that can happen at one time, choose ‘Limited Capacity’ and input the number of meetings that can happen at this location simultaneously.
