Where on your website you'd like the event to be shown
You have the ability to control where each Event is displayed on your site by checking different boxes in the Placement section.
Event Blocks will pre-populate that event.
Event Page will showcase/highlight your event on the events page (left side with images)
Event Page Sidebar will list your event only during the week the event is happening under "This Week's Events" on the event page
Calander will show your event on your website events calendar. The calendar view is a great way to see a monthly overview of all events.
If your event is still being drafted and you don't want it live on the site yet, you can uncheck the Published check box (found right above the 'Save Event' button). When you're ready to share the event with everyone and make the event visible on the site, just recheck the 'Published' box and save your event.
