How to Customize your Event
Once you have created the event you will be presented with the event overview page. You can then edit all aspects of the event, such as editing the event's landing page and customizing the Event Flows.
At the top of the Event overview page, you will see a tab called Pool. This is the pool associated with the event, where you can track invitees and attendees using the Pool Steps listed below:
From here, you can add contacts from the people grid in CRM. To do this, click on the button that says Add guests from contacts. This will redirect you to a view of the People grid that allows you to add contacts directly to this event.
From there, you can use filters and Boolean search to narrow the list of contacts. Once you have selected the contacts you wish to add to the event, click the bulk actions button Add to event. To return to the Event page, click on the Event name within the banner at the top of the page.
Within the event pool, you can quickly sort between contacts in each Pool Step, using the panel on the left-hand side. Learn more about managing contacts for Events, here.
Back on the Event overview page, you can edit the landing page for your event. More details on customizing that page can be found here.
From the Event overview, you can also preview the Registration Flow or Event Check-in Flow, viewing what those will look like from a prospect's perspective.
