Create events

Linchpin events allows you to easily create new events directly from the event hub's home page. Every event can be personalized. You decide where the event takes place, who the organizer is, who can participate etc. Furthermore, all events can be created and edited independently of Confluence pages.

Create an event

To create an event, you will need to navigate to the event hub and click the "Create event" button in the upper right corner.


Creating an event

Event details

While creating an event, you are always accompanied by a wizard. The wizard shows you which details are required to create an event (marked with a red asterisk *) and which details are optional. 

Please note: The wizard applies all changes to the event in real-time. The preview always refreshes to show you how your input affects the event. This allows you to work more efficiently.

Required details

First of all, your event needs a name[1], a start date[2] and an end date[3]. Optionally, you can mark the event as a full-day event. The next important step is to decide in which space[4] your event should be published.



Optional details

Optional details help users to get a quick understanding of the event they are viewing.

We highly recommend adding a cover image[5] to your event. This way, your event stands out is more appealing to the users. 

Furthermore, adding a location[6] and a description[7] to your event can help the user to assess all important information about it.


We recommend filling out every field for users to better understand the event's purpose.

Event options

Event options allow you to manage administrative details about your event and will help you create a functioning event.


Event categories[8] allow users to filter all events and inform them about the event's nature. You can also link an event page[9]. The link will redirect users to another confluence page with more detailed information about the event.

Furthermore, you can also define how many participants can sign up for your event[10] or if there should be a maximum number of participants. You can also decide if you want to hide participants[11]. If you hide the participant list, users will only see themselves as participants.

Finally, you can define signup options[12] for your event. You can either allow users to sign up for an events themselves or if users can sign up other participants as well.



Event macro

With the event macro, you can easily embed an event on your page. This also allows you to create a brand new event and embed it onto your page in one step. It is a very efficient way of creating events and event pages at once!


While in page creation, add the Event macro to your page.

The Event macro will display all existing events. You can apply filters here to quickly find the event you wish to embed.



Filters

The creation wizard refreshes in real time. Type in your information and the wizard will display the filtered events.

Event title

Input the title of the event you wish to embed.

Date

Search for events within a specific time window.

Category

Enter one or more event categories to display according events.


Create new events within the macro

Are you working on an event page, but the event doesn't exist yet? No need to save the draft, open several new tabs and waste a lot of time. There is a more efficient solution available.

Within the Event macro, click on the link "create a new event". 

The creation wizard will open in a new pop-up window. 

Follow the wizard's instructions to create an event.

Your newly created event will appear in the Event macro. Select your event by clicking on it.

Click on "Insert".

Congratulations, you just created a new event and embedded it into your page!
