Process Overview

Step 1:

To begin simply click the .

Step 2: Begin by filling out the page shown below. Here you will add the following information:



  1. Event Name: what you would like to call your event. In this example, ours is “Your Grenadine Event”.

  2. Event Description: Tell potential participants and attendees what your event will be all about, in a brief, engaging description.

  3. Domain for event website: The domain under which the public website for this event will be published. For example, your domain URL will look like this:
    sites.grenadine.co/your-company-name-here
    

    your-company-name-here” is the name you selected for your domain when you first signed-up with Grenadine. Unfortunatetly, your name cannot be changed.

  4. URL slug for event website: A URL slug is a specific set of keywords that you attach to the end of your domain URL. By attaching these keywords, you create a unique website link for a specific event. For example, suppose you are planning two different events: “Your Grenadine Event” and “Your Grenadine Convention”. Both events have completely different websites. To differentiate between both, you would add a URL slug to your domain URL. Here is how it would look like:
"Your Grenadine Event" URL would be sites: grenadine.co/your-grenadine-event
"Your Grenadine Convention" URL would be: sites.grenadine.co/your-grenadine-convention
  1. Event visibility: Here you can specify if your event will be public, private or unlisted.

  2. Languages: Select the language or languages you wish to show your event information in. At present, you can choose between English, French, and Spanish.

  3. Start Date: The date your event will begin.

  4. End Date: The final day of your event.

  5. Time Zone: The timezone in which your event will take place.

  6. Primary email: The email you would like to use as the main email address for your event. This email address will be shown in the footer of your public event website.

  7. Primary Phone Number: The main phone number for your event. Exactly like the primary email, the phone number will be shown in the footer of your public event website.

  8. Social Media: Link social media pages that are relevant to your event and publish them on the public event website.

Advanced Options

  1. Check the Advanced Options box to display the corresponding fields.

  2. Pre-event starts: Use this field small sessions or informal meetings that take place before the “official” start date of your event.

  3. Post-event ends: Use this field for sessions that take place after your event has “officially” ended.

  4. Time format for publications: Select either the 24-hour (aka military or European) or 12-hour AM/PM (North American style) format to show the times of different sessions taking place at your event when they appear on printed documents.

  5. Google Analytics Tracking Code: You can indicate a Google Analytics tracking code to collect stats on visitors to your Grenadine event website, as well as to your Grenadine Event Guide mobile app. These stats cover things like the number of visitors, visitor location, most popular pages, most popular items, etc. Of course, you’ll need to set up your Google Analytics account yourself for this to work.

  6. Category: If you plan multiple events, you can set a category or multiple categories for this event.
