Create Your Event Banner

  • Step 1: Click the box that says, “Type your event name here” and begin typing the name of your event.
  • Step 2: Once you’ve typed in the name of your event, select the picture you would like to use as your banner by clicking on the “Add or Change Image” link.
  • Step 3: Select a banner image from the appropriate destination and zoom in or out from the image and adjust the section you would like displayed. If you don’t have an image for you event, no worries! Your event name will still appear, just with the teal background.

 

Add the Event Date, Time and Location

  • Step 1: In the When is it? section, click in the box that says “Start Date” to select which month and day your event begins. You can scroll through the months by using the arrows to the left and right. By default, your end date will be the same date as your start date. For events held over the course of several days, click in the “End Date” box and select the day your event ends.
  • Step 2: Once you’ve added your start and end dates, select the times your event begins and ends in the “Start Time” and “End Time” boxes.
  • Step 3: Add your location or venue information in the Where is it? section. Simply click in the “Location Name” box to add the location name. For example, I’m hosting an event at Active Data, our office headquarters. I would simply put the name Active Data in the “Location Name” box.
  • Step 4: When you supply an address for your event, a map will display on your event page. Click in the “Address” box to display an accurate location for your event.

 

Include Your Event Details

  • Step 2: Once you’ve finished adding your event details navigate to the Who’s the host? section. Click in the “Event Contact” field and add the name of the person in charge of planning the event.
