Supported Event Types
 

The museum supports free and paid events that can be booked online from the museum’s website. However, the admin can create two types of events from backed – EventBrite Events and mNet Events. EventBrite events are those which include a third party link for ticket booking, and mNet events are those which can be created using the mNet software.
 

Creating Events – mNet vs. EventBrite

 

(i) Normal mNet Events

 

To create mNet events, go to the dashboard and hit the “Manage Events” icon. Now, on “Add Event” button provided at the top of this page.
 


There’s a form which the “Add Events” button is linked with. This is Event Registration form and it looks like this:
 

 

Start filling this form with event details. Here’s how to fill this form:
 

Title: Enter the title of the event
 

Body: Write a short description about the same.
 


By default, the “Publish” check box will remain checked. If you do not want to publish this event on the website now, uncheck this box. Once done, hit the “Save and add variations” button.
 

You are now on a new page where you will add variations to this event. Click on “Add Variation” button to proceed ahead.

 

 

On a new page, start adding variations to this event.
 

SKU: Give this event a unique code
 

Price: Enter general price of the event
 

Member Price: Enter member price of the event
 

Child Price: Enter event price for children
 

Seats Available: Specify event’s stock here
 

Location: Select event’s location from the dropdown
 

Room No.: If the event is happening in a specific room, mention the room number here.
 


Date: Specify Start Date – Start Time and End Date – End Time of the event.
 

Category: Enter event’s category in this field
 

Medium: Specify event’s medium
 


Instructor: Enter instructor name here
 


Include Dates: Mention dates on which event is most likely to happen
 


Exclude Dates: Exclude dates on which event will not happen
 

Days: Select event days for making the event clearer
 

Cutoff Date: This is the last date to buy tickets for the event. After this, ticket booking cannot be done.

 


EventBrite URL: Leave this filed vacant since this is not an EventBrite event.


Waitlist: Check this box if you want to have a waitlist for this event.


Image: Give this image an image using this section. Click on Choose File to upload an image to this event.


Save: In the end, click on “Save” button to complete the process.
 


Once the form is submitted, you will see the confirmation on a new page which will look like this:
 


Here, you get options to View, Edit, and Clone this event.
 

(ii) EventBrite Events

 

The process of creating EventBrite URL is quite similar to that of mNet events. However, there are a few changes that need to be noted.

When creating an EventBrite event, you need not to fill the entire event form. Fill the fields that are mandatory and marked in red. In the end, enter the EventBrite URL (which you skipped in mNet events) and hit the Save button to complete the process.  

 

Stock and Pricing Options
 

Stock is the total number of seats available for the event and pricing is the price that the member/user has to pay for attending that event.
 

While creating events (both mNet and EventBrite), you will get these options in the form.

 

 

Publishing an Event - Menu Option + Url Alias
 

If you want to publish an event on the website, make sure you check the “Publish” button that appears in the event form.
 

See the screenshot:
 


URL Alias – You can give your event a specific event using URL Path Settings option. This option is available on the right sidebar of the event creation page and looks like this:
 


Click on this button and create a new URL for this event.
 

Manage Events
 

This section of the dashboard allows you to manage museum’s events without any hassle from a single page. Things you can do on this page include; viewing registered events, editing already existing events, adding a new event on the website, viewing signups on registered events, transferring classes, and processing waitlists.
 

This single page of the dashboard comes up with a lot of options which the admin can make the use of.
 

Let’s learn how to manage this page, proficiently!

This will take you to the event page which is editable.
 


Now, view already filled event details and edit the same as per the requirements. Do not forget to hit the “Save” button to save the changes.
