Modify the event type
The Recurring Events functionality must be enabled by event type.
- Click Settings from the left sidebar in the Admin Dashboard.
- Click the Event Type tab.
- Select an individual event type, scroll down to the General section, and check Allow recurring events. You may also designate whether this specific event type shows on all chapters or specific chapters.
- Click Save Event Type.
Create a recurring event
- From the chapter dashboard, click Events from the left sidebar.
- Click the New Event button to begin creating an event.
- Fill in relevant event details such as Title & Descriptions.
- After choosing the event start & end date, select an option under This event will be hosted. Recurring series will schedule events up to 1 year from the first event start date and can be scheduled for the following frequencies:
- Every two weeks
- Once you’ve finished filling out all the event details, click Publish.
The Recurring series will be published once all events have loaded. This can take up to 10 minutes. Until published, the events in the recurring sequence will not display within the dashboard. You may leave the page while the events publish to Live.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I change the frequency of a recurring event series?
To change the frequency of an entire live recurring event series, you need to cancel all events in this series and create a new recurring sequence.
How do automated emails work for recurring events?
For the following events, automated emails are scheduled to be sent 24 hrs after the previous event start date. If a recurring event series is canceled, all scheduled automated emails are also canceled.
Can each event in the sequence be modified?
Each element in the individual event in the sequence can be modified, including date and time. The only thing that cannot be changed is the option for the event to recur and the number of events created. Even if an event was scheduled to recur every two weeks on Wednesday for four events, the date and time of the event could be modified once the recurring sequence has been published.
*Tip: Make the event hidden so that the events in the recurring sequence can
be modified individually before appearing in the upcoming events list.
