Group events are a great way to get your customers together for classes or other get-togethers you may host for your business. Maybe your business is welding, and you want to host a class for people to learn how to weld. Or, maybe you are running an art studio, and you host regular painting classes. With Thryv, you can easily put these events together and provide these services to your clientele.
Group Events are a type of service that you can set to host or multiple clients. This article will focus on creating a Group Event. Once a Group Event is created it can be scheduled for internal use or for your clients to register for online.
Create An Event Occurrence
To schedule a group event, in the top right click on New and then Group Event
Select the desired Event from the service list.
Adjust the Start Date & Time and End Date & Time, if needed.
Make an Event Reoccurring
You can make events reoccurring by selecting, does not repeat, next to Event details.
In the pop-up box, toggle the switch over to Repeat.
Set how often the service will repeat for this series.
Select which days the event will occur.
Select the end date for the event series.
Note - Even if you set an event to repeat, it will not automatically add each client to each occurrence if the client is requesting the event. The client will need to sign up for each particular occurrence separately. However, the business owner/organizer may manually choose to invite a client to all events by editing a specific scheduled event set on the calendar.
Assign Event to Staff Member
From the drop-down, select the staff member that will host the event.
Customize Event Settings
The prep time, max attendees, event fee, and type are taken from the event settings on the service menu. However, if needed, you can adjust it per occurrence.
- Customize the Prep time and the Max Attendance
Select the arrow next to Location & Price to adjust the location and price of the event. You can also adjust if the event fee can be collected online and if it is required upfront.
Make an Event Invitation-only
Upon checking this option, only clients with the unique registration link will be able to register for the event. This link will provide a sign-up for that specific time/date occurrence.
Each occurrence will have its own unique link that you can share with your clients (even if the invitation-only option was not checked). The link will be created after the Schedule Event setting is saved. Just click on the specific occurrence to view the Invitation link.
Select Create to save changes.
Now let's get the word out by inviting your clients to your event! Need to manually register clients for your event, check out this guide.
