How do I import events?

If you have all the details for your upcoming events, but don't want to walk through the event creation process each time, you can utilize our Import Events feature. 

This process requires a .csv file! Download this template for example formatting.

The required fields to make sure you have are the below:

  • Event Title
  • Event Type
  • Event Host 
  • Start Date
  • Start Time 

Other fields that can be imported are: 

  • Event Tags 
  • End Date 
  • End Time 
  • Time Zon 
  • Venue Name 
  • Address 
  • City 
  • State 
  • Zipcode 
  • Description 
  • Vanity URL 
  • Splash URL 

Next, make sure that all columns have a header and you aren't importing any blank cells. 

Once you have your file ready to go, it's decision time.

First things first:

1. Head to your Events Dashboard.

2. Select the "Import Events" button:

That will take you to the import settings page:

3. You can make a couple choices prior to selecting the blue upload button: 

  • What theme you want to use:

    This is completely optional and can always be changed after your events have been imported. 

  • What Group the events should be associated with:

  • How duplicate events should be handled: 
    • Skip the duplicate on the list keeping the original one in your dashboard 
    • Save a duplicate version so there are two of the same event 
    • Delete existing event and replace with new imported event

From here, you're ready to import.

4. Select the blue Upload button. This is the final step for importing your event(s)!
