March was a monumental month for Blackthorn. After months of development and countless iterations, we released the Event Wizard for Blackthorn Events.

Meet the Event Wizard

Inspired by our customers’ feedback, we created a step-by-step event builder that’s remarkably easy to use (think Eventbrite or SplashThat) yet still offers the customization power of a native Salesforce application. With the Event Wizard, event planners can create beautifully branded event experiences in Salesforce in minutes.

The Event Wizard guides users through creating an event from start to finish, with the ability to add more granular configurations down the line. No coding or Salesforce is experience needed, freeing up event planners and teams to focus on what they do best – plan and run successful events without the hassle of relying on administrator support.

But don’t let the simplicity of the flow fool you. The Event Wizard packs all the benefits of Blackthorn Events, including the advantage of having your event and CRM data live in one place. This means 1) No more data migrations and 2) Deeper visibility into who attended and registered for your events so you can effectively track your event ROI.
