Setting up your event is pretty much the key to any event management system for which reason we made the creation as fast as possible for you.
Create your event
First, click on the “Create event” tab in the Events dropdown on the left sidebar.
From here you’ll be guided through a two-step event creation process. On the first page, you can enter your event name, description, and the respective images. The header image is the one that will display on your main event detail page, the thumbnail image is shown on the event listing pages, and the meta image will be shown when your event is linked to external pages like on social media or on Google.
You can also add your organizer details here, which we recommend so that users can contact you and filter your events according to the organizer in our app. Click on next once you’re done.
In the second step, you can now select one of your venues or create a new one. Also, you can enter the start and end dates and select whether it is an offline online, or hybrid event (only professional plan and above). Click on save as draft, to get to your event detail admin page.
On the event admin page, you can now manage everything around your event like adding tickets, tags, seating plans, or special access codes to your event. If you just want to display your event on your page, you can simply click on “Publish & start selling” (see image below). Yet, in most cases, you’ll likely also want to add tickets to your event, which we’ll cover in the next section.
Add tickets to your event
To add tickets to an event click on the “Add tickets” button (if you have already published your event, you have to click on the “Actions” tab first):
In the pop-up, either select a ticket template that you created earlier or click on “Create new ticket”. In our case, we click on create a new ticket to be taken to the ticket creation interface. Most fields are self-explanatory and can be left in their default state, so we’ll only go through the little more complex ones.
In the pricing section, you can set up the price of your ticket:
Here you can set the price and add a processing fee to compensate for the fee that goes to your payment processing providers like Stripe and PayPal. On the right side, you are shown what the price will look like to the customer, including our fees. If you don’t want to pass our system fees onto the end customer, you can also choose to absorb the fees with the switches below the pricing option. Lastly, you should also set a sales tax for your event, so your guests can receive a proper invoice.
Further down, you can set the item stock and the buying options for your tickets. In most cases, you’ll want to adapt the stock and leave the remaining values in their default setting. If you have different pricing phases or want to prevent customers from buying tickets last minute for planning reasons, you can also set the “On-sale dates”.
When you’re done, click on “Save” or “Save and add another” if you want to have multiple ticket types.
