Event Manager – online locations

Update July 2020: We’ve updated our Event Manager to support churches holding services or other events online.

When creating an event there is now an option to specify if the event is at a physical location such as a church or community centre, or an online location such as Zoom, or Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams.

Physical locations work in the same way they’ve always done, however for online events, you can add a URL to the online meeting service you use, or to a specific webpage with more detailed joining instructions.

Let us know your feedback:

New editor now available
