This article will cover how to add new events to your website.

To create a new event, navigate to Events >> Create Event in the navigation pane on the left side of your dashboard:

At the top of the event builder, you'll have Event Themes to choose from: 

Select a theme, and we will populate the following fields on your event—all of which can be edited!

  • Event Name

  • Description

  • Landing Page Header Image

When creating an event, you will see options for the following fields:

  1. Event Name (Required field)

  2. Description (Required field)

  3. Summary

  4. Landing Page Header Image*

  5. Event Date and Event Time (Required field)

  6. Event Location (Required field)

*Recommended image size: we recommend that the image layout be either landscape or square and approximately 600 pixels wide.

On the Event details page on your site, the fields listed above will appear as follows:

On the Events list page on your site, the fields listed above will appear as follows:

For Landing Page Only Accounts:

The event URL will be located at a standard unless a custom domain has been assigned to the landing page.

Private or Invite-Only Events

Do you have an event you don't want to be listed on your main "Events" page for anyone to find and register for? To hide an event, select the "Hide from event list" checkbox: 

When this option is enabled, you can share your event landing page URL with the clients and prospects you want to invite to your event!

Registration Options

In the "Registration Options" section of the event builder, you can control the following:

  • "Allow guests to register for this event": this option displays a "Register" button on your site so people can RSVP for the event. If you do not wish to collect registration information, you do not need to select this box.

  • "Registration closes": determine when you would like to close registration for the event. The "Register" button will be removed from your website at this time.

  • "Use custom registration link": when this box is checked, the "Register" button on your website will link to the URL you enter here. RSVPs will not be recorded here on your event; you must manage those elsewhere.

  • "Limit # of signups": when this box is checked, the number of people that can register for your event will be limited to the number you've entered.

Event Reminder Emails

Under "Details for people who register," you can add a special message that will be shared only with the people who register for your event. This message will be included in the two confirmation emails that we send to your registrants: 

  1. The first event reminder email is sent immediately after they register for the event

  2. The second event reminder email is sent 24-48 hours before the event is scheduled to start 

Once your first event is approved, "Events" will automatically be added to your website navigation. If you'd like, you can remove or move this navigation item by navigating to Website >> Navigation to make your edits.
