Customize Your Event

There are tons of ways in which you can customize your event. Let’s work through them logically.

We recommend adding at least a short description, a logo, and a banner image. Use the “Basics” and “Homepage” tabs in the “Customize” section to do this.

Basic Details

On your Event page, if you click on “Customize”, you’ll get taken by default to the basic customizations.

Here, you can change the very basic details of your event. You’ll want to change these in pretty much every case.

Click on “Edit” on this tab to edit any of these details.

  • Title This is the title of your event that appears on your event page, your tickets, confirmation emails and throughout the checkout process. eg. UltimateConf 2013
  • Logo This is the main logo for your event.
  • Date You can set a start date and an end date. Start time and end time should not be set here. If you want to add schedule details, you can use the Description fields in the “Homepage” tab
  • Location This is the general location that your event is taking place. eg. Dublin
  • Event URL This is the URL that you can share with people who want to register for your event. You have two options here:
    • Use a ti.to domain. eg. https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2013
    • Use a custom domain. See Using Custom Domains for more information.

Customizing Tickets

See our section on Tickets

Adding a Map and Venues

If you go to Customize, then Location, you can add a map to your event page. You can add venue details here too.

Click on the map to initialize it, type a general location such as “Dublin” to focus the map, and hit “Locate”. You can fine tune this later. Click “Save” and your map is ready. This map will be the frame for any venues and pins you add, so make sure that the map is zoomed out enough to contain any venues you add.

To add venue details, click “Add New Pin”. Fill in the Venue Name and Address, then click “Create Venue”.

To add the venue as a pin on the map, click “Add/Edit Pin”. You can type any address in the address field and hit “Locate” to zoom the map. Click “Drop Pin” when you’re in the vicinity of your venue, and drag the pin to pin-point it exactly. Hit “Save”, and the pin will be added to your main map that you set up above. The venue address will be shown on your event homepage too, with a link to Google Maps.

If you drop a pin at a venue that isn’t within your main map, the pin won’t show up on the main map. You’ll need to hit “Edit map” and zoom out so that it frames your pin.

Customizing Your Event Homepage

By default, we’ve designed Tito to do the right thing according to what content you add, but we also give you a bit of control over what appears on your homepage.

  • Banner This allows you to show a main image at the top of your event page to give it an independent look and feel, while maintaining the consistency with other Tito event pages. You can include any image in your banner you want.
  • Short Description The short description appears directly below your event’s basic details. Include any crucial information about your event here.
  • Additional Info You can include any additional info here, such as further venue details, accommodation details, schedule, or anything else you might need or want to include.

Both the short description and additional info can be formatted using Markdown, although we encourage as little formatting as possible to keep things simple.

  • Register Interest Form Label By default, this is simply called “Register Interest”, but you might want to change it to something like “Join our Mailing List” or “Sign up for updates”. It’s up to you.
  • Tickets Form Label By default just “Tickets”, you might want to change it to “Sign up”, or “Register”
  • Show register interest form By default, the register interest form appears when tickets are not on sale. This allows people to express interest in your event when tickets are not on sale. You can choose to always display it, or never display it.
  • Show discount code field Typically, if people see a discount code field, they will wonder if they are missing out on a discount. This is a negative experience, so we don’t display the discount code field to everyone by default, and offer a way to send people discount codes using a secret link. If you want to always show the discount code, say if you are distributing discount codes publically, you can set this field to always display.
  • On the homepage, show… This allows you to toggle various elements on the homepage on and off.

Payment and Currency

The “Money” tab allows you to change your event currency, and choose what payment options you wish to support. See Payment Options for more info.

Invoicing

We support some basic customization of the invoices that your customers will receive if you’re running paid events:

  • Organization Name The name of the business entity running your event that will appear on invoices.
  • Organization Address Your business address to appear on invoices.
  • Tax Details Any tax details that your jurisdiction requires you to include on invoices. eg. VAT Number
  • Other Information Anything else that you’d like to include on your invoices. This is a good place to include a personal message to your attendees. eg. “Thanks for your custom.”
  • Invoice Number Format By default invoice numbers are just that, numbers, starting at 1 and counting up. However you can customize their format by using the following variables:
    • {{number}} — Displays the default invoice number.
    • {{number_in_year}} — Displays an invoice number that starts from 1 each year.
    • {{year}} — Displays the year the invoice was created.

Italian invoice numbers need to start from 1 each year. So you might want to use a format like ‘QT/{{year}}{{number_in_year}}’ which would give you something like ‘QT/201700001’.

Use the Links tab to add a list of relevant links to your event, including things like your official website if you have one, your contact email address, Twitter account, Facebook accout, or any other relevant link.

Just hit Add New Link, fill in your URL and optionally add a title, then Create Link.

Integrating Third Party Services

Use the Services section to add integrations with third party services to your event page.

  • Lanyrd You can specify a Lanyrd URL and choose to show the schedule for your event using the Lanyrd widget.
