How to complete the event details page
This Solution provides a summary of everything you need to know in order to successfully complete and customise your event details page. Each heading corresponds to the appropriate title found when creating or editing an event.
Some of our clients manage multiple venues so it is important that you choose the correct venue in which your event will be held. Select the desired venue from the drop-down list.
Choose what you would like to call your event. For example 'Thunder Thursdays'. Your chosen event name will be visible on all forms of promotion and correspondence so make sure you check your spelling!
Event Start and End Date and Time
The event start date denotes the date of your event with the time corresponding with the opening time of your venue.
Set the close date to the time you wish for guestlist entry to end. The earlier the guestlist opens the more opportunity for increased spend within the Venue.
Sign-Up Open and Close Date and time
This option allows you to choose when you would like your guestlist sign-up available to your customers. If you are running an event on Saturday Night you may open your sign-up on the Monday morning of that week and close it one hour before the event starts on the Saturday allowing you to maximise data capture.
Maximum Group Size
This option allows you to edit the maximum number of guests per group entering your event on the same guestlist added by a lister. The smaller this number the more data you can collect.
If this event plans to run over a period of time (For example; every Saturday night), switching this option on will create an exact copy of this event over a period of weeks.
If your venue has access to a VIP area you may wish to enable this feature. From the drop-down menu that appears, set the VIP guestlist size (The amount of people that can sign-up) and the commission that listers will make for every VIP guest who enters the event.
Guestlist Size and Commission
Choose the amount of guestlist spaces available for sign-up and the commission each lister makes for every guest who enters the event.
Upload a suitable image (Size: 460x230px) for your event by dragging and dropping an image into the box. You can also click the box and select a file from a folder.
Tables Available + Dropdown
By enabling this feature, you can offer table reservations to guests. This feature will be visible within the Facebook App.
If specific table areas are unavailable select these from the 'Exclude Areas' and 'Exclude Tables' drop-down options. If you have not yet added any table areas or packages you can do this by following our "How do I add a table?" solution/tutorial.
