This guide guides you, as an organizer, through the creation of your first event - the guide is intended for new and first-time users.

Creating an event

You create your first event by clicking on the “Create Event” button, which you will find at the top of your event overview. Then a window opens where you can fill in the very basic information about your event, such as time, place and content.

Click on “Create Event” in the main menu of Tikkio Event Manager.

What is the name of the event?

  • Give a clear name that is easy to decode for your guests.
    • e.g. “Gunslingers at the Asphalt Cafe”
  • Consider SEO which words should appear in a search engine.
    • It is a good idea to include specific keywords such as artist names or venue names so that it makes the search easier for your guests.
  • The URL is automatically generated from the title when you save the event – it cannot be changed subsequently.
    • An event titled “Gunslingers at the Asphalt Café” will be for example / gunslinger-pa-asphalt cafe.

Time

    • Specify an exact time and when to close the doors
  • Specify an exact time Event start (optional)

  • Should the event be private?
    • Here you need to decide whether your event must be publicly available or can only be accessed by visitors to whom you have added the event’s link.

Once all the information is filled in, you can scroll down the page and click “Save”.
