Multi Date Event Functionality
The first phase of our multi-date event functionality is now live!
From organisers who run events with multiple slots throughout the day to those who organise an event weekly or monthly, multi-date functionality can massively save you admin time – removing the need to manually create an event over and over or create a separate ticket for each time slot…
Why use the multi-date tool?
Multi-date events can seem like a nightmare to manage tickets for. Should you have an event for each day? An event for each workshop?
We’ve simplified the process to make it quick, easy and most importantly, clear for your attendees to purchase tickets for events with different time slots or dates.
If you haven’t previously organised multi-date events, now you can test the waters knowing we’ve got your back.
How does it affect an organiser?
The tool is really easy to use, whether you’re creating an event or adding slots to an existing one.
1. Click ‘Add more dates’ underneath the date selector
2. Select and add the desired dates/ time slots.
And you’re done! In two steps, you’ve saved yourself from creating multiple events or tickets and you’ve made it even easier to track and analyse which slots are most successful and in-demand.
From the event dashboard, you can now view graphs based on the entire event or based on a single slot, day or appointment time. You can also download a separate guest list for each slot too!
For a more in-depth look at the tool, there’s a step-by-step guide on our help centre.

How does it affect your attendees?
The whole process is streamlined for buyers, limiting barriers to conversion and making sure no one accidentally buys a ticket for the wrong day or gets lost in a page full of different dates and times.
Whether you use our full event embed or the box office tool, your buyers will always be asked to select their preferred slot when booking tickets. This keeps attendees on the same page without redirecting them to a calendar or other event pages.
The multi-date tool may seem small but used correctly it can free up your resources whilst making the ticket purchase process intuitive and accessible for your attendees.

Last time we looked at how to get started with an email marketing campaign, including how to create an email marketing strategy and how to build up your email list. If you missed the first part of this series you can find it here. This time we’re taking a look at email marketing best practices and some regulations we recommend you follow.
Email marketing may seem a fairly old school method of marketing your next event in a world full of messaging and social media channels, but it’s still one of the most effective ways to get in front of your target audience and get results.
Putting together an email list may seem like a daunting task, but it’s an essential component to running a successful marketing campaign for your event. Email lists are perfect for encouraging attendees to return to future events you may run as well as informing new subscribers of events coming up.
