How to create Events

Bring your members together for Events, including meetups & online events.

Events are a great way to bring your community together, creating value for members and increasing engagement. Honeycommb Community Admins can create events using Control Center 2.0, while community members can access events through a dedicated link in the navigation menu (slide-out menu on mobile).

Supported Event types:
  • Meetup - enter an address for the event with map displayed on event page
  • Online - enter a link that is shared with members who RSVP.

The Events page in Control Center is used to create & manage your community's events.
