Follow our tips & tricks below to get started creating your first film festival on Eventive!
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. [yourfestival].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.
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:
Welcome Tab: Perhaps hide the Schedule and Film Guide buttons until those pages are ready for the public, create a welcome message, add a "ways to watch" table, and more!
Menus Tab: Perhaps hide the Schedule and Film Guide links until they're ready, add a link to your organization's main site and social media pages, and more.
Virtual Tab: If using Eventive Virtual, add header and footer banners, customize the option to collect donations at checkout, customize the "back" button destination, and more!
Misc Tab: Customize order confirmation emails and more!
Once you've got the basics set up, you're ready to start building your events!
