Pros: Guidebook is a pretty easy tool to use when coordinating, planning, and scheduling events such as conferences and organizational/ company days. I have used in education when planning PD days for our district or when attending conferences. best part is the mobile app that users get to use and interact with when you make it live. Decent amount of included capabilities as well, that are in the free program, including images, and a feedback system.

Cons: When using with the free program, you are limited to the total number of downloads of your mobile app. I assume when paying this will change. As of now, the free version has sufficed.

Overall: Guidebook helped me plan and coordinate a staff PD day for my school district. Users were able to interact throughout the day and plan out the sessions they wanted to attend digitally, without needed to carry a paper copy with them. This also helped me promote our day/event as well as provide acknowledgment to those companies that helped support our event.

I discovered this app 2 months ago for an anime convention and I've been converted.

Pros: The superb organization and the supreme convenience. I was able to spend a great chunk of time going through each and every event and marking off the ones that interested me. If there was a time discrepancy, the app let me know. It let you choose the time frame for your notifications. It kept you up to date with news alerts from the events. It had a built in map. It's the organizational tool I never thought I needed until now.

Great for conferences

Pros: We have used the free option for a couple of years and it is easy to use and update. The customer service is great too.

Cons: I had a little issue uploading the program initially and ended up having to delete duplicates times three! I should have read the directions more clearly to begin with.

Overall: KACRAO has used this software for our annual conference for two years. I uploaded the program last year and after a few initial glitches, I read the instructions, those clearly defined what my issue was. I then uploaded the program and it was great for our organization to be able to use it throughout the conference. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to utilize an online program for an event.

Recommendations to other buyers: Read all the way through the instructions first :).

Comments: I am not a seasoned user, sadly. I've only used the software once, or maybe two times, but it has been at least 1 year. However, what I've found is that it works well, it just has opportunities, like all software. If there were a few more tutorials offered on use, I could tell my students to watch those for help/guidance.

Guidebook was AMAZING for our annual event!

Comments: We used Guidebook for our most recent annual conference and are definitely planning to use them again! Overall it was a wonderful experience and I'm extremely bullish on the product. The content management system was intuitive and easy to use. I only had a few minor questions, and it was extremely easy to be in touch with their support team, who proved equally helpful and personable. The overall feedback on the app from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, and we we're able to eliminate printing 100%.
