Under basic settings, enter the following details for the event.

If the event is for a specific community group, select the group in the field Show this event only within certain communities, else leave the field blank.

Details & Images
Once the basic details are entered, the next step is to add information about the event under the Description field; here you can give your user more details about the event.
Pro Tip: description is a rich text field, so you are not restricted to texts only. You should be able to add videos, upload a file, create a table, etc. (string of options)
Next, upload banner pictures you want for the event on a laptop/desktop and on the mobile device using the fields Banner Image and Banner Image on the mobile
You can also share images of the same event from last year using the "Event Gallery Image" field.
Note: For the entire image to be visible, please upload it in the recommended size mentioned below the respective fields
Guests & Registrations
Here, you can set
Whether you want the event to be available only to verified account holders on your platform? or to anyone?
If it's open to anyone, then toggle on "allow guests to register without logging in or signing up."
Whether you want to allow other guests to accompany your ticket
If accompanying guests are allowed, then toggle on "Permit accompanying guests."
Whether you need to ask the guests additional questions using forms, if yes,, attach a custom form under the "Registration Form" field.
You can also add a user's email address to the "send notifications to" field, and every time somebody registers for the event, this user will be notified.
Lastly, you can toggle on the "Send event reminder email" option for our system to automatically send a reminder email to the event registrants a day before the event starts.
NOTE: All the toggles under this section are turned off by default.
If accompanying guests are allowed, the buyer will be required to input some basic details about the people accompanying him/her.
Here to allow the event registrant to fill in details of the accompanying guests later, you can use Sponsored or Team tickets. This allows the event registrants to come back later and fill in the accompanying guest's details.
