Featured Events

Featured events are events that you would like to give a prime spot on your calendar homepage or channels in the Featured Events Carousel to receive some extra attention.

Featuring an Event

  • Navigate to Events > Live
  • Select the desired event from the list
  • From the Featured dropdown select which Channel(s) (including the homepage) you want the event Featured on
  • Save Changes
  • Assigning in a Bulk Upload CSV: In the Featured Tabs column, enter the name of the Featured Tab
  • The names must match exactly. The name is what appears in the Featured dropdown on the Admin Event Edit Form.

Sponsored Events

Sponsored events are a way to give an event unique styling throughout the calendar and a prominent spot on your homepage in your Trending events list. The event will be given an automatic boost in the Trending algorithm, which will result in ranking higher in any Trending list–whether on your homepage or another channel. Not to mention, unique styling can be specified with Custom CSS so that the event stands out in the Trending events list and other results pages.

Sponsoring an Event

  • Select the desired event from the list
  • Check the Sponsored box under Settings
  • Save Changes
