How to Create a One-Time Virtual Event

This article will walk you through how to create a virtual event that does not have a recurring schedule.

Updated over a week ago

STEP 1: In your dashboard, click on New Event and select Scheduled event from the list of options.

STEP 2: Set Visibility to 'Public' or 'Private' depending on whether you'd like the event to appear publicly on your organization's feed or not. If listed privately, your event will only be accessible to those with the direct link.

STEP 3: Write an Event description! If preferred, use Markdown to format.

STEP 4: Add a photo! Photos look best when they strictly follow our recommended size of 1200x630px.

STEP 5: Select 'Virtual' under Location to make this a virtual event.

Tip: Add a location even if the event is virtual so local supporters can find your event!

STEP 6: Select your timezone under Schedule!

STEP 7: Click on Add times. Leave Frequency at 'Once' and select your Start date, Start time, and End time.

STEP 8: If you have video call information to add, click on Add video call information.

Use the "Link to join" field for the link your supporters should follow to join the event. Examples include: a Zoom meeting or webinar link; a Google Meet meeting link; or a live stream URL.

Use the Other joining instructions field for other information that a supporter might need to join the event. For example, alternative dial-in instructions or guidance on which devices are supported.

STEP 10: Click on Submit.

Attendees will receive a confirmation email with the link to join and any other instructions you provided.
If the video conference is changed, the link in the confirmation email will take them to the new link. You can read more about our automated notifications here.
