How do I create a new event?

Create a new Event with a unique Internal File Name

1. From the top menu, click on Events > My events
2. On the right-hand side, click on the New Event button. A new Untitled event template will open.

3. Internal Event Name—Name your event a unique internal file name: On the My events bar, find the My events / Untitled event;  click on ‘Untitled event’ and replace it by typing your own event name into the box. For example, “Winterbourne Concert – June 2022.” This file name is never publicly visible – your event participants will not see this name—so, you can use any internal event file name that makes the most sense to you.

Open the Event Settings

4. On the top-right corner of the My events bar, click the Event Settings cog icon. The Event Settings window will open. (Alternatively, on the event template page, place your mouse on the Header section with the ‘Title.’ A border will appear around the Header section. Click anywhere within the Header box. The Event Settings window will open to display the Header tab.)

Start with the Header tab

1. From the left-hand menu, click on the Header tab. (It is open by default.)

2. Public Event Title—Entitle your event with an external, public title: In the Title section, give your new event a public title, such as “Summer Concert in the Grass.” This event title is publicly visible—your event participants will see this title—so, use an inviting, descriptive title.

3. In the Settings section, you may choose to enable the Sticky menu. (For additional instructions, see: What is a “sticky menu”?)

4. Images: You may choose to add a Cover image, Title image, and/or Background image. (For additional instructions, see: How do I add images into my event?)
5. When you have completed adding Header details, click the Save button at the bottom.
