The corridor of a house is the space whence the rooms are reached and quickly scanned, and such is the Events overview. 👣 To create a new event, edit one or examine the stats of events that are in progress or completed, this is the place to go first, so keep reading to know where everything is situated. 📺
How to access the Events module
1) Click Apps on the sidebar
2) Choose Events
Lo and behold, the Events overview is revealed!
The overview consists of three tabs at the top organising events by status, each returning a list of all corresponding results. There's a View selector to visualise events as different teams and team members, and a number of buttons and shortcuts to take action. But find more information below!
How to start a new event
Just click the button Create a new event to make the first step. To know how to proceed from there, check this article. 😉
How to find an event by status
It's possible to shift between three tabs, located in the left vertical pane of the page, to navigate throughout different phases of the event lifecycle:
Upcoming — Events in the initial and planning stages, which are scheduled to take place at some date in the future.
In progress — Events that are currently underway, because the start date has passed, but the end date has not.
Ended — Events that are already over and done with.
The Upcoming tab is displayed by default.
How to find an event according to author
As previously mentioned, you can filter the events displayed in the active tab by the coworker or staff team who authored it, thus helping you narrow down results. Accomplish this by means of the View dropdown menu on the upper right corner of the page.
Interpreting the columns
The columns in the adjacent list give a summarised account of the most crucial details concerning the events therein displayed:
NAME — Official name of the event.
CREATED BY — Staff user who created the event.
PUBLISHED — Whether registrations are open or closed.
START — Start date of the event.
VIEWS — Number of views of the public registration form.

How to manage existing events
You can use the buttons to the right of each row to execute several actions and access important data. They are, respectively: Event responses and statistics, Public registration form, Edit this event, Duplicate event and Delete. When in doubt, hover the mouse pointer over an icon to see its name:
Event responses and statistics — This report provides a summary of items such as how many times the public registration form has been viewed, the number of submitted responses, the distribution of responses across the available options (YES, MAYBE, NO) and the volume of attendees.
