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 login.
* 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 Youtube or Vimeo 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 " / " or 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, 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.

From there, attendees can access Watch Stream page to view the streaming URL of your event.

First, choose 1 main category for your event. Main categories are designed like genre verticals which allow attendees to search for your event by a broad description. So be sure to choose the category most applicable and relevant to your event so 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.
After you have published and tagged your event, our team will review the event page before the event appears on Peatix Search. If you have published your event and saved the tags, but your event isn't shown in the search results, please check again in a few days.
You can also choose to publish your event page first and tag your event at a later time but note that your event will not be submitted for review for Peatix Search until it has been tagged.
