Your event will be hidden from public view until it is "Live" or activated within EventSprout. If you preview your event before it is live, pricing tiers, promotions, etc. will not be in effect.
1. The main tool that determines whether your event is activated or not is the "Event Status" function in the top right hand corner of your screen in Step 1 of the Event Creation process:
2. Your event will not appear on EventSprout outside of your Start and End Date range. To push the event live, simply change the registration date to today's date and time, or a date/time in the past. Then, click "Update" or "Activate" (if you have not previously activated your event).
3. Once your event is live, start publishing your event link out to guests, event websites etc.
*Note: if you are trying to verify/test promo codes, promotional prices, pricing tiers, etc., make sure the start dates are set to today's date or in the past. Otherwise, the promotion/function will not work. Your event does NOT have to be live to test these features.
