Hackathon event creation experience: Upgraded!

August 3, 2021

Hello everyone!


Happy to share that we have done a massive upgrade to the hackathon event creation experience with the intent to make this key flow self-serviced. This is aligned to our vision for Xathon as a self-reliant platform for creating, managing and monitoring hackathons and ideathons. We know that our customers want complete control, and that is exactly what our remodeled event creation flow gives. Ease of use and practicality are at the center of this update along with other incremental usability enhancements and a new look and feel.


Key enhancements:

  • We have introduced a real time preview mode for our customers to visualize the event landing page as they progress, before actually making the event live.

  • We have introduced banner and logo templates for streamlining creative assets for an event.


  • We have restructured all the pages into more appropriate categories for ease of use. For example—clubbing relevant configurations under sections such as- event details, team details, SEO etc.

  • Implemented Mettl Design System 2.0 to make Xathon more cohesive and connected with other Mettl Products



We believe that these changes will open new markets especially in the international geos and conversations where customers want to create events on their own.
