You may have just submitted your event to your local calendar but it is not appearing there. There are a few potential reasons why:
- The address used for the venue of the event (or the city for a virtual event) may be outside of the area set by this calendar for free events (common)
- The category used for the event does not match a list of approved categories for a small set of category specific calendars (rare)
- The calendar may be moderating new event submissions with a temporary hold on new events (rare)
If your event was submitted successfully, then you would have received an email asking you to verify your email. Once you access that email, you will be able to view and edit your event in a dashboard.
Events submitted to a calendar will only appear on that calendar if the event venue location falls within the catchment set by the publication.
Each calendar has a set area for events. The calendar on which your event appears is based on the location of the event. If the location of your event falls in the area set by the host site for the calendar, then it will belong to that calendar. If your event is not showing on a calendar then it is possible that the location entered for the event is not in the area for that calendar.
The area set by the publication may not include the location of your event. If this is the case then you can select "Promote your Event" or "Upgrade to Premium" so that you event submission is syndicated to a wider variety of local, national, and category-specific calendars. At checkout, you will be shown a detailed list of the targeted sites to confirm that the site you intend to reach is listed.
Your event may have been submitted with an inaccurate location. This can be caused by updating the address text fields before selecting "Reset Location". This can change the address text, but not the pin for the location on the map. The location on the map will override the text address and that may be the reason your event on the wrong calendar. If you think this is the case, or the map does not seem to match the text address, then you can fix the address by editing your event.
Step #1: Log in to Evvnt and head to "My Events".
Step #2: Find the event and select "Manage"
Step #3: Select "Edit"
Step #4: Select the "Edit" next to the Location.
Step #5: Select "Reset Location" to reset the maps pin placement.
Step #6: Enter the address for your location and check that the pin placed on the map matches your expectations. If not, then be sure to select "Reset Location" if you need to enter a new address.
