What is a group?
We understand that groups, communities and even fan clubs form organically when people come together for shared experiences at events on Peatix. Interactions within these circles may happen before, or long after, an event. With groups, it is our hope that we can facilitate these interactions more seamlessly. Create your group based on the contents of the events and the attendees.
Creating your group
1．Get started by creating a new Peatix account, or using your Facebook, Twitter, Google or Apple account to log in.
* If you already have a group, you can immediately create a new event in the same group.
2．Click "Let's begin!" to start creating your group.
3．The Create a Group page is shown.
On your group page you can:
- add a logo (size: 80 x 80px)
- add a cover image (size: 960 x 240px)
- add a Vimeo or YouTube video
- add a group description (try to be descriptive to encourage people to join your group)
- set a custom URL to your group page (an underscore " _ " , slash " / ", and dot " . " cannot be used in your custom URL)
Click "Create Group!" to create your group.
* Peatix users can become followers of your group from the event page, or when ordering tickets to your event. Followers will receive notification emails when you publish a new event, and your events will be displayed in the recommended event list in the Peatix app.
* It is possible to create multiple groups in your account, and you will be able to host events in each group.
How to create an event
After you have created your group, you can start creating your event.
Start by registering the event name, date and time.
If you are going to hold an online event, select "Online event" under "Event Type". This will automatically create the Watch Stream page where you could share the online viewing URL with your attendees. The Watch Stream page can only be accessed by ticket buyers who have ordered tickets for your event, and it cannot be disabled.
The information you have entered on the Online page including streaming URL and event instructions will be shared with your attendees on the Watch Stream page.
You can select from 2 streaming methods: Link out (an URL to any streaming platform) or Embed (currently only available for Vimeo and YouTube).
|Link out (Any streaming platform)||If you select Link out as your streaming method, after entering the streaming URL, attendees will be directed to this URL to join the event.|
On the Watch Stream page, attendees will be able to access your stream through a link-out button and join your event at the designated site.
Embed (Vimeo or YouTube)
|If you select Embed (Vimeo or YouTube), after entering your streaming URL, your Vimeo/YouTube live stream and live chat (if available) will be embedded on the Watch Stream page.|
By sharing your streaming URL on the Watch Stream page, you can share your online viewing URL with your attendees without having to inform them individually.
Your event instructions (up to 2,000 characters) will be shown under the "Additional notes from the organizer" section on the Watch Stream page. You can share any information about the event, such as the event program, meeting ID and passcode, and software requirements here. The attendees will be able to access the Watch Stream page immediately after ordering a ticket.
After ordering a ticket for your event, attendees will gain access to the Watch Stream page of the event through the tickets dashboard in their account, the order confirmation email as well as the event reminder email (sent automatically approximately 24 hours before the start of the event). Attendees will need to log in to the account they used to order their tickets to access the Watch Stream page. Those who didn't order a ticket will not be able to access the Watch Stream page of your event.
* For events in Japan, attendees who have yet to complete conbini/ATM payment can access the Watch Stream page but not the content (both streaming URL and event instructions) you shared on the page.
You can edit the streaming URL or event instructions at any time. If you haven't created the streaming URL when publishing the event page, you can add the URL later through the Edit event page. In that case, please let the attendees know beforehand the date and time you're planning to add the streaming URL in the event instructions.
When you publish an online event without adding streaming URL
Regardless of the streaming method, the "Join event" button on the Watch Stream page will not be activated until a streaming URL is added. Please add the date and time you're planning to register the streaming URL in the event instructions.
1. Link Out
After setting up your stream, you can add the streaming URL by clicking on the "Edit Settings" button on the Edit event page. If you choose Link out, the "Join event" button will be enabled. When the attendees click the "Join event" button, they will be directed to the streaming site to attend your event. At the same time, please keep the event instructions up to date.
You can add the Vimeo/YouTube streaming URL by clicking on the "Edit Settings" button on the Edit event page. Your Vimeo/YouTube live stream and live chat (if available) will be embedded on the Watch Stream page after the streaming URL is registered.

Be sure to choose the category most applicable and relevant to your event so that attendees can easily find what they are looking for!
Once you are done with picking the main category, you can select up to 5 topics for your event. Topics are more specific recommendation tags that help attendees discover other types of similar events they may be interested in.
