It’s quick and easy to submit an event on your calendar. In one quick form, we gather everything needed for a quality event listing! The submission form will prompt users for the information needed to add the event to our system.
Posting to your own calendar
Create a customer for yourself if you plan to post events to your own calendar. You are likely an editor or admin which means any events you create will be attached to that user. This is not ideal as our system treats admin/editors differently than 'promoters'. It is best for you to create a 'promoter' customer for yourself using an alternate email. You can then log out of you admin/editor account and log in as a promoter. This will give you access to save events as draft, copy expired/past events, and more easily find just the events that you submitted.
If you create the event for your users then they will not be able to purchase promotions via our system. We ask that you invite hosts to post their own events.
Instructions to post the event on the user's behalf are given below. However, we recommend asking event hosts to post their own events.
Invite hosts to post their own events
The goal of our calendar is to allow users to post on their own with no intervention. It is quick and easy, and offers them the chance to make changes to the event, add more events, AND it will give them opportunities to use our promotional tools. This is how your calendar earns revenue for your publication, but inviting users to your submission form.
Send users to your calendar
The easiest option is to send everyone to your calendar page. Users can begin their event submission by clicking on the “Promote Your Event” button located on the top right of the calendar. This frees up your editors for other tasks.
Make it easier and send them the direct link
You can generate a link to your publications submission form in the "Get Code" section of the Editor CMS. From the Get Code section, you can configure a link that you can share with anyone that wants to submit an event directly to your calendar.
Create the event in the hosts name
You can post an event on someone's behalf and create an Evvnt account for them to access all the features of the system. To do this, you must log out of our system or use an alternate browser where you are not logged in to app.evvnt.com.
- Go to app.evvnt.com and ensure that you are logged out.
- Go to your calendar and select "+ Promote your event"
- Follow the prompts to enter the details and submit the event for free.
- Since you are logged out, the last step will ask you to enter an email (see image below). You can enter the event organizer's email at that step and an account will be created for them in our system, if one doesn't exist. Once you submit the event with this email, the host will receive an email asking them to verify the new account.
