Create a new event
This article will outline the steps to create a new event in Bevy.
- Locate a chapter from within the dashboard and select Events from the left sidebar. Learn how to create chapters here.
- Click New Event and select an Event Type (if applicable)
- Fill out the appropriate fields:
a. Title and Description
- You can drag and drop photos to the event description
- Description text can be styled (bold, italic, etc.) by selecting a given word or text. Styling options will appear once a selection is made.
b. Schedule and Agenda - by default the event timezone will reflect the Chapter's timezone. You can adjust that to make the event happen in a timezone that is different from the Chapter's timezone.
- If you are creating a Virtual Event be sure you have selected the Virtual Event Type. You have the option to choose between an external virtual platform (External URL) or Bevy Virtual. Learn more about Bevy Virtual.
Note: Using the Virtual Event Type allows you to include a virtual event link rather than a venue address.
d. Event Tracking (optional)
Note: The magic wand icon (pictured below) can be used to auto-populate previous event agenda, location, and ticket type data.
