Events represent anything that happens at your festival. They can be configured in a number of ways, but for now let's get started with the basics.

Note: Holding a film festival? Add films in Eventive. Use films to autogenerate a film guide and include details/credits, poster images, multiple screenings, and more. Learn more about films.

Creating an event

  1.  From the Eventive Dashboard, select your event bucket.
  2. Click "Events" in the lefthand navigation.
  3. Click "Create New Event".
  4. Enter a name & description for the event, and select a start & end time.
  5. You can learn more about the other options in the event editor here, but for now just save your changes.

Add a ticket bucket

Events contain ticket buckets, which are collections of tickets. For example, your screening might have a "General Admission" ticket bucket. Without a ticket bucket, individuals cannot order tickets.

  1. Click "Add new ticket bucket".
  2. Enter a name, price, and quantity for the ticket bucket, then click "Save changes".
  3. That's it!

Your event is now live & accessible via your schedule! You can check out how it looks by going back to the Events page, clicking "View" next to event, and then clicking "View live".
