A great engagement strategy often shifts between different types of participation - blending offline, online and digital engagement. Whether it's a public meeting at City Hall, or an online videoconferencing workshop, you can also use your platform to display and publicize both past and upcoming events.

For each project that you've created, you can easily add events. Just go to the 'Events' tab from the project page.

Displaying events

1. When you've added an event to your project, it displays by default at the bottom of the project page.

2. The events from all of your projects are also compiled into a single Events Page:

This Events Page can be viewed

  • by adding /events to the end of your platform's web address

  • by adding this Events Page to your navigation bar. You can enable this setting in your admin interface: "Pages & menu" > "Add to navbar" next to "Events".

3. You can also display three upcoming events on your homepage using our Events Widget, which is available on our Standard and Premium plans.

Similar to the Events Page, the widget can also be enabled in your admin interface: "Pages & Menu" > "Edit" next to "Home" > switch toggle next to "Events".

Getting people to RSVP to your event

We don't currently support an in-product event registration tool, but we can recommend using your Typeform subscription (or any other external event registration service of your choice) if you would like people to RSVP to your event. Within the event description, you can link to your RSVP form using a button - this will direct people to a new page to register to your event.
