Creating an On-Demand event

This article goes through how you are able to create a stand-alone on-demand event (An event that was never live)

Overview

Stand-alone on-demand events are available for Producer+ and Enterprise clients. 

Creating a new (stand-alone) On-Demand event

Click on the Create a New Event or the Create Events button

Then click Upload & Host to preview the template you wish to use for your event. You do this by clicking on one of the experience images which will show you a preview image.

When you are ready click Use Template & Create Event which will give you a pop-up to create your event.  You will see:

  • Event Title
  • Description
  • Scheduled Start Date (Even though this is an on-demand, we would still recommend putting a date on)
  • Scheduled Start Time (you are able to leave this as 12 00 AM)
  • Duration (you are able to leave this)
  • Timezone (you are able to leave this)

When you have entered these details click Proceed.
Note: These elements can all be edited once the event is set up.

Event Summary Section

Title - This is the title of the event as it will show in your account.  Clicking on the title will allow you to change it. Once changed, click off the title and the pencil will change to a green tick to confirm the change in title has saved.

Date/Time - This is the date and time you have set for the event. Even though it is an on-demand event, we would advise keeping a date on this to ensure emails go out if you want them to. If no date is set, no emails will dispatch.

Emails - See a live status of your emails to be dispatched from the WorkCast Platform. As standard, the Confirmation and Reminder emails will be automatically activated when an event is created. If you do not want this, you can click on the emails tab, for more information on how to edit your emails, click here.

Auditorium URL - This is where your attendees view the live event.  As standard, no attendees will be given access without first registering, which they do through the Form URL.

Form URL - This page allows attendees to register for the event.

You are now able to follow the rest of the guides on adding information to your event.
