Event Publication

When you finish creating an event, you will have the option to set that event to either private or public. In some cases, you may want for your event to be private and to be hidden from the TryBooking Buy Tickets and any of your own Event Listing URL widgets or Event Listing Page

Private events could be members only events, a special group function (such as a Year 12 formal) where you want to directly share event URL to your patrons for them for booking and for it not to be available publically. 

To make your event private, head to Event Publication from Basic Information at the top section of your dashboard.

You will then see this screen:

TryBooking dashboard event publication privacy settings

Change your event to Public: No.

TryBooking Dashboard Event Publication Turning Privacy On

Doing this will ensure that the event will not appear on the TryBooking public listing.

Adding Passwords

If you wish to give priority to a group you may wish to add a password to your event via Event Publication and Passwords.  This means as your event opens for bookings, only those with the password will be able to continue to book.  

Tip:  If you make your event private and you then give the URL link to a select group, may be simpler than also giving a password which needs to be inputted.
