Geared toward agency managers and program managers, this article covers how to post an event, how to edit an existing event, and how to deactivate an event.

How to Post an Event

To post an event in Get Connected:

  1. Log into Get Connected and go to the agency manager area by clicking the My Agency button at the top of your screen. If you manage multiple agencies, select the agency from your My Agencies list.
    By default, you will be taken to the Edit tab of the agency manager view.
  2. Click Events to open the event-posting form.
  3. Click Add New Event to open the Create Event form.
  4. Complete the fields in the form. Fields are described below.
    FieldDescription
    TitleEnter an event title.
    Enable RSVPsIndicate whether you want to use the RSVP feature. If you turn the feature On, you will be asked to enter an event capacity. If capacity is unlimited, enter 0 (zero).
    DescriptionType an event description.
    All Day EventIf this is an all-day event, toggle this option On.
    Start and End Date/TimeAs required, indicate the event's start and end dates and times.
    Event Contact InformationType the event contact's name, email, and phone number in the fields provided.
    Event Location InformationType the event's address, city, state, and ZIP code in the fields provided. Note that a ZIP code is required.
  5. Click Create Event.

How to Edit an Event

To edit an existing event:

  1. In your agency manager view, click Events. You'll see all of your agency's existing events displayed in a table under Manage Events.

    Note: Expired (past) events are shown in faded text.

  2. Click on an event to edit it (or click the Edit link beneath the event title.)
  3. After making your changes, click Update Event.

How to Deactivate an Event

When an event is deactivated, it is no longer displayed on your site, and volunteers can no longer RSVP to it, even if the RSVP option was activated.

To deactivate an event:

  1. In the agency manager view, click Events. You'll see all of your agency's existing events displayed in a table under Manage Events.
  2. Mark the box to the left of each event you want to deactivate.
  3. Click on the "trash can" icon in the Actions row above the table.
  4. Click Yes to confirm that you are deactivating the event.

Note: Currently, a deactivated event cannot be reactivated. You can "reactivate" an event by editing it and re-submitting it, but we don't recommend doing this, particularly if it is the RSVP feature is being used.
