Creating an Event 2 - Locations

Events do not have to have a location, but if you are using one, it needs to be created before you schedule the event. Like events themselves, locations also belong to you.

Having said that, you can use any pre-exisiting location for your event. In this post we will look at how you create a new location.

Go to your Profile page and click on "My Locations" as seen here:

Click on the "Add New" button at #1 and you will get this screen:

Clicking on images in these tutorials will open a larger version in a new window, showing more details.

The first thing to do is give your location a distinctive name at #1. For example, "My Town Community Town Hall". Jump down to Country at #2, then enter the location's street address at #3.

As you add more information in each box, a map will appear on the right at #4. The more exact your information, the more accurate the map will be.

If the map does not display your location accurately enough, you can try using the GPS coordinates as the street address, in the format:

20.790808, -156.513890

If that still doesn't work, you can choose not to have a location and use the Map tool instead to create a drag & drop map to add to your event page. This will also accept GPS coordinates and allow you to display the map exactly how you want before saving it.

Once you are happy, save your new location. Next we will look at the first step in adding the actual event.
