¶ Events and collecting RSVPs
Do you want to organise an event for your group, for DiEMers in general, or for the public?
There is more to see
Hello, here is collapsed text!
The new DSC pages also have a section listing upcoming meetings and events organised by the DSC. We recommend adding your regular meetings there, so that people who look at your DSC page see that you are active - this makes them more likely to join. You don't have to worry about private information: if you set the audience of the meeting to "group members only", non-group members will not be able to see the details of the event (only the title; they cannot click through).
And to make it super convenient, the New Event form now also sends out emails notifying all DSC members about the scheduled meeting.
Group events (e.g. weekly DSC meetings) have two special powers:
- All group members will automatically be notified via email about these events, unless you remove the checkbox that says so.
- If you choose "Group members" in the "Who may attend" field, the event details will be hidden from DiEMers who are not in your group, so that it's safe to post e.g. a Zoom link there. The event title will be visible on your DSC page so that people know your group is active and has regular meetings, but non-group members will be told to join the group if they want to see the event details. If the "Who may attend" field is set to "DiEM25 members", the event details can be seen by anyone in DiEM25, and if the field is set to "public", the event will be listed in DiEM25's public calendar on diem25.org .
(Also keep in mind that there's an option to set up recurring meetings at the bottom of the event form).
