Club events can be used for whoever you see fit. As an example we will use a football club creating a football match.
Go to the club events page and click on the "Add event" button
Enter a title for the event
Enter the start date and time
Enter the end date and time
Enter any relevant details
Click on the "Add Event" button
Click on the event you have just added and you will see more information such as address fields. If you add a postcode, a map will be shown detailing where the event is taking place.
If a member (or you) is viewing the event page and they have a postcode set against their own account, you can view directions to the event.
Click on the magnifying glass icon above the map, then click on the car icon to view directions from your house to the event.
To see if any documents have been added to the event, click on the + icon to expand the documents section.
To add a document to the event, click on the "Add Document" button at the top.
To add members to the event, click on the "Add members" button at the bottom. Select a group and click on the "List Members" button.
If a member has added some "availability" on their dashboard calendar (e.g. a holiday), if the event falls between this holiday, you will see a notice next to their name that they are not available for this event.
Click the check-box for every member you want to add then click the "Add members" button.
Once you have added some members, click on the "Email Members" button and a popup will open listing all the members added to the event.
Check all the members you want to include in the email and select a document to attach to the email if applicable.
When you click the "Email Members" button the system will email everyone you selected informing them that they have been selected for the event.
There is a special link for the recipients to click on so they can say whether or not they can attend. The choice they make will be reflected against their name on the event page.
To add volunteers to the event, click on the "Add members" button at the bottom. Select a group and click on the "List Members" button.
Enter the role you would like them to volunteer for and click the check-box for every member you want to add then click the "Add volunteers" button.
You can email your volunteers the same way you can email your members by clicking on the email button in the volunteers section.
