Collecting RSVPs

You can collect RSVP through the event on your website - If you choose this option, your event will be listed as FREE. If you want to collect money for your events, I recommend using event bright or another paid ticketing service. You can list the events on your site, and then include the event bright link as the URL for the event.

  1. On the event editing screen, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for "Tickets" - add an image, and then click "add new ticket"
  2. Fill in ticket details 
  3.  When you view your event you'll now have a Confirm RSVP button. If someone RSVPs they'll get an email with event details
