The EventStream Wall App makes it easy to display your EventStream, session announcements, and advertising; you can display these either onscreen or have them projected onto a wall at your event.


As for all apps/portals, you need to set up a name, Alias (URL), brand, live dates, and messaging for before and after the app is live. Read this article for more information. 


Changing the wording in the app/portal

Changes made to the default language in Application Settings will affect all events. However, you can still make unique local changes for each portal in each event in the Portal Setup. Read more about Localization.
