Renaming the Feature, Adjusting the Settings, and Adding Events

  2. Under Settings, check the box to enable specific options.
    • Auto Deactivate: Your events will deactivate (i.e., stop appearing in the app) automatically two weeks from their start date.
    • Populate Recurring Events: Select the number of weeks you would like in advance for recurring events to generate and appear within the app.

    Single Events: Use this option for one-time events or those that do not recur.
    • Mobile Header Image: Upload or select a mobile header image (750x400 pixels in PNG format) for the event.
    • Tablet Header Image: Upload or select a tablet header image (1536x636 pixels in PNG format) for the event.
    • Custome Time Zone: Enable to use the Global Time Zone located in your Settings area instead of a custom time zone. When disabled, use the drop-down menu to select the appropriate time zone.
      Note: While you're able to set a Custom Time Zone for an event, If viewed in the App Previewer it would display the event according to the time zone that is set on the computer.
    • Event Start and End Date/Time: Use the two fields to select the start & end times (in 24-hour format) for your event. The time format users see within the app will depend on their device settings.
    • Event Name: Give your event a name.
    • Description: Use the WYSIWYG editor to customize the event's description. 
    • Photo Sharing: Choose whether you wish to allow users to post photos within the comments feed.
    • Attendees: Choose whether you wish to allow your users to signify that they will be attending the events.
    • Imported Location: Enable the use of a location from the Contact feature. When disabled, use the Custom Location Name section to input the address.
    • Address Section 1 and Address Section 2 (requires Hazel or later): Use these fields to name the location whatever you would like (e.g., "Mission Location" and "San Francisco"). They will serve as the top and bottom lines of the location name.
    • Address: Search for the address in the Enter a query field or enter the coordinates in the Latitude/Longitude fields below. When you use the coordinates option, Google Maps will pull the nearest address.

      Recurring Events: Use this option to add an event that recurs on a weekly basis. Keep in mind, when you make changes to existing recurring events, those changes will only apply to new occurrences, meaning you will need to individually change each occurrence that has already generated within the CMS.

    • Mobile Header Image: Upload or select a mobile header image (750x400 pixels in PNG format) for the event.
    • Tablet Header Image: Upload or select a tablet header image (1536x636 pixels in PNG format) for the event.

      • Background: Select the background color for your event description.
      • Text: Select the text color for your event description.
    • Custom Time Zone: Enable to use the Global Time Zone located in your Settings area instead of a custom time zone. When disabled, use the drop-down menu to select the appropriate time zone.
      Note: While you're able to set a Custom Time Zone for an event, If viewed in the App Previewer it would display the event according to the time zone that is set on the computer.
    • Day Of Week: Select the day of the week for this recurring event.
    • Start Time & End Time: Select the start & end times (in 24-hour format) for this recurring event. The time format users see within the app will depend on their device settings.
