The venue for your event can be quickly found by typing the venue name or address. As you type, suggestions will appear based on the results available in the Google Maps database. Selecting an item will grab the full name of the venue, the address), and a map for the pin point for this location. It is recommended that you confirm that all of these items are correct for your location before moving on to the next step.
We use Google Maps to find your location. This allows us to place your event on a map for any potential attendees. If your location is not being found in your search, then your location may not be included in Google's Maps database. This is the most widely accessed location database in the world, and you can add your location to this database. Then, it will be available in our system for this and all future uses. You can add your location by following this guidance from Google: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/6320846
If the "Virtual Event" option is selected, then only a city, state location is required. More information here.
If the location on the map is wrong, then use "Reset Location" to clear the results. This will show the search option again and you can try searching by venue name or address.
If the location search has provided the correct pin but the wrong name or address for your venue, you can click the "Edit Location" option. This will allow you to change the name of the venue or edit the location details. Once you have edited the text for the location, click "Save". Note: editing the text of the address will not change the pin location. If the pin location is not correct, then you must 'reset location' and attempt another search for the proper location.
If a yellow text box appears, it may tell you that "Your event will not be published in (name of publication) because it is outside of their coverage area." See image below and more info below the image.
If a yellow text box appears and you post the event with this selected location, then the event will not appear on the calendar you are currently using. More details are found in the article, "Where is my event?", about where your event might be and why it is posted to a different calendar based on location.
