Utilizing the secondary call to action (CTA) section in your events is a great way to organize information and event "to-dos" for members in a central location.
If you're wondering what exactly a call to action is, it's a prompt for members to do, complete, or follow-through with something. It's a message that let's them know you want them to do something. A secondary call to action comes into play after members register for the event. It's all of the "other" things you need members to take note of or complete - a nomination form, an application, etc.
Adding a secondary call to action
To add a secondary CTA to your event, follow these steps:
Head to the event on the backend.
Navigate to the Details tab.
Scroll down to the Secondary Call to Action section.
Name your CTA.
Enter in the URL that the button on the frontend should link to.
Save your event.
Using a PDF as a secondary call to action
In order to create a secondary CTA, you'll need a URL for the button to link to. Linking to an external site is straightforward - all you'll need to do is name the CTA and copy/past the site URL. However, if you want the CTA button to link to a PDF file, it needs to be "hosted" somewhere to have a URL - otherwise it's just a file on your computer. To host your PDF on Novi and create a URL, follow these steps:
In the left navigation, click Static Content > Novi Files.
This will bring up the files modal. In the top left, click Upload and upload your PDF file.
Once it loads, right click on your uploaded file.
Click on Info.
Copy the URL shown.
Head back to the event and paste this newly created URL in the secondary CTA section.
