Events

The Events module allows you to view every event in your Marketplace site. Only businesses with an expanded listing are allowed to display events. Events should always be added or edited through the Public View in Marketplace, not the Admin View. These events will appear under the tab “Calendar” on expanded Business Listing sites.

Events are an excellent way for businesses to engage their clients. Their clients can sign up to receive notice of events through SMS or email.

Business owners can manage events by clicking on ‘Events’ to the left of the photo on their Business Listing.
