BroadNet Systems offers a full package solution for events management on site. Handle your staff more effectively on that special day with the tools you need to make sure everything runs smoothly.


To create an event, first navigate to the ‘Events’ section on the BroadNet portal.


Then click ‘Add New Event’.


From here you can create your event, determining time and dates the event will be running.


Once you have created your event, click Edit on your event to open a custom Dispatch window for your event. 


This Dispatch will list all available handsets listed for this event, along with any other channels linked in and the Live Incident Queue specific for the event.

But for now, let’s get our map set up to show the rough area of where our event will be taking place. To do this, first click on the map at the most South-Western point of your event area to place a marker.


A popup menu will appear asking for you to define what the marker you have just placed is. Give it a name (I’ve just called it ‘South West Event Marker’ for clarity, and then define the marker type as SouthWest.


Repeat the process for the most North-Eastern point of your event area, making sure to define the new marker’s type as NorthEast.

You should end up with two markers on the map. Now refresh the page.


The markers should now be replaced with a border box, displaying the outer boundary of the event.


To break down this boundary box into a grid, we can use longitudinal and latitudinal segments (columns and rows).

Here I’ve selected to have 5 longitude segments and 5 latitude segments, but you can select however many of each as you see fit.

Once you have entered your desired amount of segments, click ‘Update Event’.


The map will now display a grid across the event area.


Let’s start placing some markers down to define specific areas on the map for easy navigation. Switching to satellite view gives a better view of any existing buildings or structures.

To place a marker, simply click once where you need a marker to be placed.


For this example, we’re defining where a car park is on the map. This is just a generic place marker, so we’re going to set it’s type to ‘Text Only’.

‘Text Only’ means the label will only have a text identifier, with no additional symbols or special types.


This will (after a quick refresh) display the text marker on your event map.


Repeat this process for the rest of the facilities offered at your events. Making sure to check the correct marker type where applicable.~

In this example we’re defining where the disabled toilets are, so I’ve selected the Disabled marker to help identify it.


Once you have finished populating your event map, you will be ready to manage your event dispatch.

After exiting the event edit mode, you will be able to manage your event dispatch just like the standard dispatch mode.
