Updated over a week ago

Running a workshop or event series? Read on to see how to create, manage and share your events easily, while watching your community grow!


πŸ“† Setup dates to suit your event style

Recurring event, or single occurrence event? Select the best event type for your setup.


Option A: Set up a recurring event πŸ”

This setup suits workshops or events that repeat over multiple dates and times.
For each occurrence, the event content is exactly the same

e.g. Yoga class running every Sunday at 8pm

  1. Under the date and time heading on your event

  2. Click recurring date

  3. Use the date picker to + add your individual dates and/or select the frequency a session may repeat

  4. Create a generic general admission ticket type(s) that will apply to all dates

Option B: Set up a single event with multiple sessions πŸ”’

This setup suits event series where the details may differ for each occurrence or you'd like to offer attendees the opportunity to buy more than one session at a time in a single order.

e.g A week-long garden show, with cheaper tickets on Thursday

e.g A 5 days drama workshop (with a discount for attending 3 or more sessions)

  1. Under the date and time heading on your event

  2. Click single date

  3. Set a long-running date spanning the first and last session

    1. e.g. 1st July 9am - 5th July 11am

  4. Create separate ticket types for each workshop/session

    1. e.g. β€œYoga basics - Monday 1st 9am”, β€œYoga essentials - Tuesday 2nd 10am”

  5. Use a time & date override to set each ticket type up with the correct info for each session.
