Follow our tips & tricks below to get started with your new Eventive Single Film account!
First, create your event bucket! Learn how here.
Navigate to the Settings page on your dashboard to customize the name of your event bucket as well as the subdomain, which is the URL to your Eventive site (ie. [yourmovie].eventive.org).
You may want to hide the Film Guide and Schedule pages for now while you set up your site. Hide these pages by un-checking these boxes on your Event Bucket settings page:
The Settings page is also where you can edit the Tax and Fee settings for your event, should you wish to pass on fees to the customer, add sales tax, and more.
Open Eventive Virtual Settings to organize your virtual catalog, set unlock/watch windows, upload pre-roll, and choose whether to publicly promote your screening.
Next, customize the design of your Eventive site!
Most of this work will be done in the Configurator, which is found on the Event Bucket Settings page. The sections of the Configurator that we suggest focusing on are:
General Tab: Upload a logo, a banner image which will appear in your order confirmation emails, and more! Check out this article containing image upload specs.
Virtual Tab: Add header and footer banners, customize the option to collect donations at checkout, customize the "back" button destination, and more! You may also want to select the settings to hide the "Livestreams" and "Search" buttons, as those are primarily applicable to film festivals.
Misc Tab: Customize order confirmation emails and more!
Once you've got the basics set up, you're ready to start building your events!
