Add web links to your Event App to connect attendees to information found on websites outside the app. Or, add dynamic links to allow attendees to access personalized content from third-party platforms directly through the app. These instructions will walk you through how to display a single link or multiple links within a card on your Event's App's Home page.
 
NOTE: The cards will appear in the Event App in the order they were created, so make sure to consider your desired layout before getting started.
