2. Setting Up Your Event Details

How to change/update your Event Details

Learn how to start editing your event details and build the event in the Admin panel.

To be covered: 


You now have access to your event; the first thing you should do is update your event details. Your event has the bare minimum details, which are (Title, Date, Event duration, Time Zone) to get you started.

To start off building your event, ensure the basic information is correct by following the steps below.

If you need to make some changes to the event details after the first check-up - go to Details you can change while building your event in Brella.

How to update event details

  1. Start by logging into the admin panel and clicking 'Add event details.'
  2. Continue with checking the name of your event as well as the industry.
  3. Check that the date and duration of your event are correct.  Also, update your timezone, region, country, and city if needed. For example, choose a time zone that specifies a city (GMT+2:00 - Helsinki) since choosing a general time zone (GMT-5:00) EST may be affected by the Daylight Saving Time.
  4. Choose how you want your attendees to join your event.
    The attendees will join your Brella event by inputting the join code in the Brella app or by using a direct link you will provide.

    🔍 Note: We recommend using an abbreviation of your event with the current year or your event hashtag for the join code. 

  5. The final step is to customize the event by adding a wide and small logo, cover image, and an applicable area map. Click on confirm and save to update the event details.
