Connected Experiences

In this article, we will show you how Connected Experiences work.

The concept of Connected Experiences is having a Main Experience and ‘connecting’ other Experiences that may be related. Having this feature increases customer awareness and engagement that while the experience they attend is happening, there are other experiences available for them to see and enjoy.


The process of creating experiences remains the same. We have an article related on how to fill out a new experience. Please click here

We will be editing one of our existing experiences that we have already made and creating a connected experience with it.

For example, our main experience in this section is Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams. This Experience could have other linked Experiences in different locations or different times which tells the customer that there are other experiences occurring / to watch out for in the future.

Steps
1. In the PAM navigation menu, go to 360 Manager > Experiences

2. Click the edit button to open up an existing experience. (i.e. in this example, we will edit Pre Game Interviews)


3. Find the CONNECTED heading. This is the section we will focus on.

4. Main Experience: Select an experience that will act as the main experience for our (e.g. Pre Game Interviews). In other words, we are connecting Pre Game Interviews with another experience to be the main experience while Pre Game Interviews becomes a sub-experience.

5. Sub-experiences: Select the experience/s that will act as a connected experience (e.g. Pre Game Interviews is the main experience and we will now choose experiences to be the sub-experience)

You now have a choice here. Choosing either Main Experience or Sub-experience will automatically disable the other option. Make sure you read this section properly as it may be confusing for the first time.

6. Scroll down to the bottom and save changes

A friendly reminder that you need to fill in the rest of the experiences information if you are creating a brand new experience or else progress will not be saved.


Main Experience section

By choosing this section, you will make your current experience (the one you are editing right now) become a sub-experience. This will also disable you from making any sub-experience selections for this experience.

2. In the search bar, you can type in the experience that you want to find

3. Alternatively, we will also show you a list of upcoming / active experiences to choose from. For this article, we will select Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams.

Please remember that you can only have one main experience.

Making Parent / Child Experiences become Connected Experiences

We will show you how to link experiences from different accounts together as long as they have an established parent / child relationship. This means that the accounts need to be linked together to see the changes appear.

In this article:

Hollywood Park = Parent account
Hollywood Park Retail = Child account

Hollywood Park Point of view

Steps

We have logged into Hollywood Park as that is the parent account

1. In the PAM navigation menu, go to 360 Manager > Experiences

2. Select the edit button on an experience. We will edit DALLAS COWBOYS VS LOS ANGELES RAMS


3. Go to the CONNECTED section

4. Choose the subexperience tab

5. Click on a child-created experience to be a sub-experience. In this case, we will add LOS ANGELES RAMS SHIRT SIGNING. You can have both Parent and Child created experiences to be a sub-experience

6. Scroll to the bottom and save changes

You can make child created experiences become a sub-experience ONLY


7. You can see the connected experiences now has a child created experience as an established link

8. You can see that the faded out black label (indicates the experience belongs to another account but is currently upcoming) is with the child experience which confirms that the link was established properly


Hollywood Park Retail Point of view

You will not be able to establish any link with a Parent created experience. This means that it cannot become a main experience or sub-experience for a child-created experience. For a child account, you will only have normal functionality.

Parent experiences can be viewed in the experiences page but they cannot be edited.


Applying Experiences Filters

This section, we will show you what happens when you click on certain filters on the Experiences page.
This is useful as you have the ability to control which experiences you want to see in a certain status (i.e. active) while the non-active experiences are faded away.

Please be aware that changing these filters only applies to the Experiences page. This will not affect Interactive Kiosk or Explorer map functionality.

1. Showing Upcoming and Active Parent and Child Experiences

Applying these filters will show both parent and child experiences. Look at the selected filters below.

ACTIVE ✔
UPCOMING ✔
HOLLYWOOD PARK RETAIL (CHILD) ✔

We also have an ARCHIVE filter. Activating that will show all expired experience that have happened in the past.
