Events V2 Feature

Description

The Events v2 feature is a robust option for event promotion. An upgrade to the original Events feature, this improved option adds user engagement and social media integration, plus importing options and advanced recurring event customization.


Note: The Events v2 feature is the upgraded version of the old Events feature. The Events v2 tab is natively functional, unlike its predecessor, and preferred by Apple's review team as a result.

Content

Here you can rename the feature, adjust the settings, and add events.

 

 

1. Under Screen Info, change your Screen/Feature Name or leave as-is. This is the name that will appear in the app's feature menu (e.g. "Tour Dates" as opposed to "Events v2").

 

2. Under Settings, check the box to enable specific options.

  • Auto Deactivate: Your events will deactivate (stop appearing in the app) automatically two weeks from their start date.
  • Sort Events By: Select Date/Time to display events in chronological order or Manual to display them in the order they appear in below.
  • Populate Recurring Events: Select the number of weeks in advance you'd like recurring events to generate and appear within the app.

3. If you plan to add events manually, skip ahead to #5. Under Events, click IMPORT EVENTS to import from Facebook, Google, or Eventbrite.

  • Facebook: Plug in a Facebook Page URL to import Facebook events. Only publicly visible events created by this Facebook Page will successfully import.
  • Google: Log into your Google account to import events directly from GCal.
  • Eventbrite: Log into your Eventbrite account to import events directly from Eventbrite. Only events created by this account will successfully import.



4. Click NEXT once you've selected your import option. Once importing is complete, you'll see a full list of available events. Select the ones you'd like to add to your feature, then click IMPORT. You'll be taken back to the full list, where you can import more or click DONE to return to the dashboard. Make sure you review all imported events and complete their content.

5. Click ADD SINGLE EVENT or ADD RECURRING EVENT. Complete the the fields below, then click ADD. Repeat this process for each event.

  • 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 (640x264px in PNG format) for the event.
    • Tablet Header Image: Upload or select a tablet header image (1536x634px in PNG format) for the event.
    • Time Zone: Enable to use the Global Time Zone located in your Settings area instead of a custom time zone. When disabled, use the dropdown menu to select the appropriate time zone.
    • Event Start & 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. See here for more info.
    • Imported Location: Enable to use a location from the Contact feature. When disabled, use the Custom Location Name section to input the address.
    • Address Section 1 & Address Section 2 : Use these fields to name the location whatever you'd like (e.g. "Mission Location" & "San Francisco"). They'll serve as the top & bottom lines of the location name.
    • Address: Search for the address in the “Enter a query” field or enter the coordinates in theLatitude/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'll need to individually change each occurrence that has already generated within the CMS.

  • Mobile Header Image: Upload or select a mobile header image (640x264px in PNG format) for the event.
  • Tablet Header Image: Upload or select a tablet header image (1536x634px in PNG format) for the event.
  • Time Zone: Enable to use the Global Time Zone located in your Settings area instead of a custom time zone. When disabled, use the dropdown menu to select the appropriate time zone.
  • Color Settings: Enable to use the Global Background & Text Colors instead of custom colors. When disabled, the following settings appear:
    • Background: Select the background color for your event description.
    • Text: Select the text color for your event description.
  • Time Zone: Enable to use the Global Time Zone located in your Settings area instead of a custom time zone. When disabled, use the dropdown menu to select the appropriate time zone.
  • 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.
  • Duration: The event duration will automatically calculate based on the end time, and vice versa.
  • Repeat: Select Weekly or Monthly recurrence from the drop-down menu.
  • Event Name: Give your event a name.
  • Description: Use the WYSIWYG editor to customize the event's description. See here for more info.
  • Imported Location: Enable to use a location from the Contact feature. When disabled, use the Custom Location Name section to input the address.
  • Address Section 1 & Address Section 2 : Use these fields to name the location whatever you'd like (e.g. "Mission Location" & "San Francisco"). They'll serve as the top & 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.
