Note: This is currently only available to partners, but we are planning on rolling this out to all communities soon.
With Scheduled events, you will now be able to schedule "events" in your server ahead of time so that your community can learn about and be notified of when they're occurring and be notified when you're live.
How do I schedule an event?
1. Enter your stage channel
2. Press the Schedule Event button
3. Input the details of your event
4. Confirm the details and schedule that event!
Frequently asked questions
Q: Why are you releasing Events to Stages first?
A: We've seen great adoption of Communities using Stages to both connect with existing members and welcome in new members. We know that planning and running these Stages for larger groups of people can take a lot of time and planning and we want to release our Events capabilities here first so we can get feedback and learn quickly as we expand it to all channels and public Stages shortly after.
Q: Will this be available on all platforms?
A: Yes, this is available on all desktop, iOS, and Android platforms.
Q: What happens when I click on the "Interested" button for an upcoming event?
A: This lets the event owner know how many people are interested in coming and will give you a notification when the event is officially live so that you can make sure you can tune in!
Q: What happens if I forget to start my scheduled Event
A: If you don't start your Event within an hour of the scheduled time we will automatically remove the event from Scheduled Events.
Q: Why should I schedule an Event instead of just starting it when I'm ready?
A: Scheduling an event allows you to give your Community advance warning of when they should expect to show up as well as allow them to get notifications about the event so they can better ensure they don't miss it.
Q: How far in advance can I schedule an event?
A: There is no limit to how far in advance you can schedule an event
Q: Is there a cap to the number of scheduled events I can have in a server at once?
A: Currently there is a cap of 100 scheduled events at a time
Q: What permissions do I need to schedule an event?
A: We will be introducing a new permission, "Manage Event." This will allow members to create, start, edit and delete scheduled events.
