Events are a fantastic way to engage a wide audience within your store and generate increased loyalty with your customers.
This guide will show you the basics of the events platform and will link to other guides on how to create, manage and use events.
How does the events platform work?
Venue Admins create an event then using the supplied booking links publicise these to their customer base either over social media or via internal channels. Customers are able to click on the link and search by topic or by date to find the event they can attend.
By entering basic customer information they are able to book into a specific event, receiving automated email and SMS confirmations and reminders.
Events in Qudini are created by Venue Admins. They comprise of three main components:
An Event Series
You must have all 3 in order to create an event and publicise it to your customers.
The first thing to create for your event is an event topic. You can create as many topics as you like. Topics are templates for your events; prescribing core information and branding which are used as a basis for an actual event. You do not set any time and dates just yet. A topic describes what the event will be, and is then used later on to create the event itself.
These are ways of containing multiple Events and Topics that are grouped together by a common theme, for example by brand or by content. To create an Event Series, you will first need to have created Topics that can be assigned to it.
Once you have a selection of topics and they are assigned to an Event Series. You can now create an event. Venue Admins can access the events platform, select an event series, select the topic and then create the event.
