How-to: Create an Event

Creating an event is free and easy. Follow the steps below. All fields marked with an *asterisk are required.

Step 1 - Add Event Details

add event details

  1. Give your event a Title.
  2. Specify a venue or create a new venue (ex. My house). If your event is an online event, click "Online Event" to remove the venue option.
  3. If you're creating a new venue, enter the location's address in the Location field. A list of addresses will automatically populate as you type. If the address does not show in the list, click "Can't find your location?" to manually enter it.
  4. Upload an event image. Try to use a photo that is squared. The photo should be a minimum height and width of 250px for best results.
  5. Select the start and end dates and times and be sure to set the appropriate timezone.
  6. Give your event a good description. Include information like refund policy, what to do upon arrival, and any other information to help attendees have a positive experience.
  7. Select an Organizer or add a new one if you did not create an organizer before. The organizer will show up as the contact on the event page.
Step 2- Create Tickets (Optional)

This step is completely optional and is not required to list an event.

  1. Create free or paid tickets (donations are considered paid tickets).
  2. Give each ticket a "Ticket Name" and specify the "Quantity Available". For paid tickets, enter the "Price" as well. Additional settings can be configured specifically for each ticket by clicking the symbol. Find out more about ticket settings.
  3. The event capacity is automatically set to the amount of tickets available, but you can limit your event capacity by setting the "Event Capacity" field to your desired number.
  4. If there are paid tickets, select how to handle the service fees. There are three options to handle service fees:
    1. Pass the fees to the buyer
    2. Absorb the fees
    3. Customize per ticket
Step 3- Create an Event Webpage

  2. Select an event type for your event. This will place your event under a searchable category in the event directory.

  4. Save your event or make it live! You can save your event to finish editing or to make it live later. You must fill-in all required fields before performing either on of these actions.
  5. Once the event is saved or live, it will automatically display with the default theme. You may personalize the event theme by navigating to the DESIGN tab of the event and choosing a pre-defined theme or by creating your own.
