Event Settings

To configure event system settings, navigate to: System Settings tab > Home/Dashboard > Events.event_settings_2.png


Event Custom Fields

Events can have two different types of custom fields: Event Custom Fields, which are event custom fields that can be used in any event, and Event Specific Fields, which are fields that only apply to one event. Generally, it is best practice to use Event Custom Fields as much as possible, as it encourages consistency in your data and can save you the work of creating custom fields every time you create an event.

To set up these fields, navigate to: System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Event Custom Fields.

Registration Discounts

The Event Discounts section allows you to add discounts to events, and even allows you to make certain discounts available to a selected group of constituents.

System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Registration Discounts.

Learn how to configure Event Discounts here.

Display Settings (Event Layout)

You can configure some display settings for your online event forms here: System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Display Settings.

From here, you can configure some layout options for the following pages:

  1. Event Listing
  2. Event Page
  3. Event Registration Form

Event List Layout

These settings apply to your Neon event listing page.

Event Page Layout

These settings apply to the Event Page for all events.

The Would you like to hide the auto-generated social networking links? option determines whether a prompt to share your event form on social media will be presented on the event page and the event registration form's exit page.

When the option Would you like to display the event calendar reminder? is enabled, the calendar reminder links will be added to the Event Page of each event.

Event Registration Form Layout

These display settings apply to all event registration forms.

When the option Would you like to display the event calendar reminder on event registration exit page? is enabled, the Calendar Reminder links will be added to the system default exit page for event registration forms, as shown below.

Calendar Configuration

Using your Event Settings you can also set up calendar widgets to display on your website to keep your constituents updated on your organization’s events. These settings are found here: System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Calendar Configuration.

To create a calendar widget, click on Edit next to Event Calendar in your Event Settings section. Two calendars will appear, a small one at the top, and a large one at the bottom. Each has a Configure button associated with it. To configure each, just click on either the Configure It button for the small calendar, or the Configure the Large One for the large calendar.

On the editing screen, you will see your calendar and a variety of settings. Although it may look confusing at first, you will notice that if you click on the radio buttons underneath CSS Class, the features you can edit will flash. To edit a feature, click on the desired radio button, and change the settings in the text boxes for border, color, and text.

CSS refers to the design styles used in the calendar, and those are listed below next to the radio buttons. Labels ending with “td” refer to the text content of the rows like the numbers of the month, or the days of the week. Labels ending with “tr” refer to the actual row of the calendar, or the boxes, like the row holding the days of the week in the calendar.

To edit each section, change the border width, text size, alignment, colors, etc. and when done click Save.

When you are done editing your calendar, copy and paste the URL given in the box below the calendar to the HTML of the page on which you want to display your calendar. If you have a webmaster, give him or her this URL so he or she can add the calendar to your website.


Event Topics

Event Topic, like Category, is another field that you can use to categorize your Events. To edit the list of available options, navigate to:

System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Topics


Event Categories

If your organization categorizes events, you can specify them here: System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Categories.

Setup is similar to any other system setting type or category.

It will then be displayed as a drop down field when you create or edit an event.

You can also search your Event List by Category

Session Categories

Like Event Categories, you can use the Event Session Types to create categories for Event Sessions, which are typically multiple sessions of one event. Edit these just like Event Categories. To configure these, navigate to:

System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Session Categories


Event List Filters

You can configure whether certain event fields are displayed on your event listing web page. These fields include:

  • Event Topic
  • Event Category
  • Event Price
  • Event Location
  • Event Name

To enable or disable these fields, navigate to:

System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Event List Filters
