To post an event, project, or opportunity (without the need of a group), you can use the "List Event" ("List" on New View) option on the top right of your page. However, we recommend all admins to have a login and create a group, and add events through their group's dashboard. Log in to GivePulse and select the listing option:
Selecting this will guide you through a process to fill out the required fields. To immediately create an event, you will need to enter the following:
- Name of the event
- Type - you can choose from: volunteer opportunity, an event, a project, a fundraiser, a donation drive, a ticketed event, and a pledge.
- Frequency - Is your event a single day, multiple (specific dates/shifts/time slots), or an open opportunity with no defined times?
- Privacy Settings - You can make an event private in the settings section.
- Participants needed - the number of people you believe will be needed. If you have an unlimited number, set it as "-1."
- Admin - the choices available include any members and existing admins in your group.
- Description - we suggest creating a short, concise, and enticing description to drive interest to your event!
After going through all of the above required fields, you will have the option to go into the advanced sections, which include adding event-specific logos, social media, website links, etc.
Note: Depending on your selections, if you chose "Shifts" or "Time slots" for your event, additional fields will be required for you to fill out.
Afterward, the event is placed into draft mode, and you can "Publish".
Registration - Group Registration: If you want to enable large groups to register themselves in bulk, you may turn this on.
Registration - Collecting Data: If you want to collect specific data about your registrants before they attend the event, you may select the default canned fields provided or create your own custom fields. Usually, information like T-Shirt size, phone number, and emergency contact information is important to know before attending the event. The additional information you may also want to request is "How did you find out about this event?", "What do you know about at-risk children?" etc.,
Registration - Registration Approval: If you want to approve each individual when they register, this will allow you to control who can register.
