Welcome to the first step of your event creating, where you can enter all the important information about your event.
1. Date and time
Please select the start- and the end date of your event as well as an appropriate time.
If you want to postpone an event to a later point of time, make sure that you change at first the end- and after that the start date.
Thats the only way to postpone the event date.
2. Logo and cover image
Please select a logo and a cover image to design your event homepage more attractive by clicking on "edit". The uploaded cover image is automatically the banner image for all of your e-mails which are related to your event and send to your bookers, for example booking approvals, event reminders or e-mail campaigns.
After you uploaded a logo from your device (1.), you can adjust the logo size with the bar (2.) and optionally the form (3.). Click on "Accept" after your logo adjustment (4.). Besides that you have the possibility to use one of your already uploaded logos (5.).
Follow these steps for the cover image too.
3. Event settings for your attendees
Organizer contact data
Please click on "Add contact data" and add a contact person, who will be in charge if attendees have any questions regarding your event. You have the option of selecting a contact person who has already been used and transfer the data with a single click.
Event address and name of venue
After you have entered the address in the appropriate field, please choose one of the automatically suggested locations from the list, so Google Maps can detect your location. If the address field shows an error, please enter the correct street as well as the house number of the event again and wait until the appropriate address is shown in the list so you can choose it.
Besides you have the possibility to mark your event as a virtual event by checking the checkbox "This is a virtual event". Please note that you still have to enter an address to determin the time zone of the event. Once an event is marked as virtual, the event location will not be shown on the booking interfaces.
Hint: If you can't or don't want to publish the event address yet, you can just enter the city, the city district or the province of the event. Please be advised, that you have to inform your bookers in time (for example by an e-mail campaign or with the event reminder) where the event will take place.
Underneath the map you can enter optionally the name of venue and additional information about the event address, to help your attendees find the location or - in case of virtual events - point attendees to the fact that the event will be hosted online.
Here you have the opportunity to describe your event as well as giving detailed information about the content and the event process. Next to the formats and the choice of colour you have the possibility to insert links and pictures.
To insert a link you have to select the text, which will be embed to the link, and click on the link button.
Please define on witch landing page the booker will come if he clicks on the link and if the page will pop up in a new tab or will stay in the same tab.
If you want to insert a picture in the event description, you have to click on the picture button.
Select the tab "Upload" and click on "Datei auswählen", so you can upload a picture from your computer. Then click on "Send it to the Server", wait until you have received the confirmation and click on "OK" in the lower left corner.
If the upload was successful, you will see the picture information in which you can adjust the uploaded picture. Confirm the changes witch clicking on "OK". The selected picture will now be shown in your event description and can still be adjusted in size and position.
