Set up an Event 

  1. Login to your Tithely account. 
  2. Click Events from the left menu. 

  3. Click the Create New Event button.

Step 1: Event Details

To get started, every event requires some basic details:

  • Event Name

  • Church/Campus

  • Event Start Date & Time

  • Address of event 
    Note: Utilize country codes for your location such as US for United States or CAN for Canada etc.

 

There are several additional optional fields that can be filled out to give your admins and attendees more information about the event, such as details, end date, and location.

Once complete, click Next at the bottom

Step 2: Tickets

Every event requires at least one ticket, even if it is a free event. Within Tickets, you can set up your ticket types, amounts and quantities. A ticket can also have dates assigned to them for things like Early Bird registration discounted tickets.

To add multiple ticket types, click the Add Another button and fill in the details.

Once complete, click Next at the bottom

Note: A single registration allows for the purchase of up to ten tickets in one transaction. To buy more than ten tickets, complete the first transaction for ten, then start a new registration for additional tickets.

 

Step 3: Attendee Info & Questions

Attendee information is an optional, but useful feature to add to your event. At a minimum, every person registering/purchasing tickets will be required to enter their name and email address.

In addition to the registration's contact details, you can request and require additional attendee contact details, like name, email, and address.

Beyond contact information, you can create custom questions that may be needed for each attendee, like "List any food allergies" or "What is your t-shirt size?". Add additional questions by clicking the appropriate Add Another button.

There are also options for creating general questions that may not be specific to each attendee.

Once you have set your questions, click the Next button at the bottom.

Step 4: Discount Codes

Discount codes are optional, but can be useful if you're offering things like group discounts or promotional discounts.

Each discount requires:

  • Description of the discount

  • Discount code that the registrant will enter

  • Discount type (fix amount, or percent)

  • The dollar amount or percent off

  • The ticket(s) that the discount applies to

A limit can be set on the number of uses and an expiration date.

More discounts can be created by clicking the "Add Another" button.

Once complete, click "Finish" to complete the event setup.

Tithely Tip

When registering for an event on Tithely events, your registrant will input an email address into the system. If they have not already created a Tithely account, this will create an account for them. In order for them to access the account later, they will need to input their username and then do a Reset Password to log into their account.

That's it! Your event is created. 

Be sure to click on the Launch Event Registration Form to check out your event registration page. If you see something needs to be changed, simply go back to your admin tab and click "Edit" on any of the desired sections.
