The event overview page allows you to quickly and easily publish events created in MATE on your website.
How do I activate an event on the overview page?
1. activate publication in the website generator
To activate an event, create a registration page and activate the publication in the step "Publication on the overview page.
It is possible to enter an alternative event name, a short event description and optionally an event picture. If the column Title (event name) is not filled in, the title of the created event will be used automatically. If you do not have a picture available, the event date is automatically displayed.
2. presentation of the event on the overview page
Set tags for your events
You can assign tags to your events. This allows your potential participants to filter events according to their areas of interest and thus narrow down the search. The following image illustrates the filter function on the overview page.
You create a new event and add the desired tags directly during data entry.
You would like to assign the tags to an event at a later date or after duplicating it. To do this, switch to the menu item "Settings" within your event and then select all suitable topics under "Tags".
Add participant limit for registration deadline
If your event requires a participant limit, this can be specified in the event. A remaining number of places is then displayed on the event overview page. As soon as the full number of participants has been reached, the registration deadline is indicated by "fully booked".
To set a limit for your event, go to the menu item "Registration settings" in the website generator and enter the desired limit under "Maximum registrations/commitments".
