Event Setup

To help make your setup easier, we created the Event Setup Wizard that will step you through the process to make sure you have all your event templates ready to launch your event. Once you have gone through all the steps in Event Setup and you are happy with how your event looks, click Finish Event Setup to stop the Event Setup emails.

Can I copy my past event into my new event?

Your event details can't be copied from a past event, since they usually need to be updated for each specific event. However, once you have added your event details, you can import your event settings from a past event. You'll find that in the bottom of Event Setup. 

Find Event Setup  Gear icon  (gear icon) in the Event Tools menu on the left or from the [ V ] button menu next to the name of your event in My Events. All the links to set up your event are in this section.

Did you know that you can collapse the sidebar menus by clicking on the white space or the << arrows on the bottom of any column?
