With a Timely account, you can receive event submissions from your community by setting up an event submission form. In this post, you will learn all the steps to reject, edit or approve event submissions, managing all the events submitted to your Timely events calendar.
1. Viewing New Event Submissions
When an event submitter submits a new event to your Timely events calendar, you will receive an e-mail notification. The purpose of this notification is to inform you about the new user-submitted event, and remind you to reject, edit or approve it.
To see all your event submissions, first you need to login into your Timely account. Then, go to the menu Events, and choose the submenu Submitted.
If you are using the live view mode, you will see your user-submitted events like the image below:
If you are using the list view mode, you will see the events like the image below.
2. Managing User-Submitted Events
To manage user-submitted events, just move the mouse over the event you wish to review.
To reject a user-submitted event, just click on the Reject button. As a result, the event will be rejected, and will no longer appear on the list of submitted events.
To approve an event without modifications, click on the Accept button. Consequently, the system will automatically publish the event to your events calendar, as submitted.
As another option, you may want to edit the event before approving it. In this case, just click on the event listing, and you will then be able to edit the event post. When you are done editing, click on the Accept button at the end of the event settings page. The submitted event will then be published with your edits.
However, if there is still information missing that you want to add or confirm before publishing the event, you can click on Accept as Draft. The user-submitted event will move from the Submitted list to the Draft list, immediately.
3. Automating Event Submission Approvals
Instead of managing each event separately, if you prefer, you can automate the event submission approval process by automatically approving all events submitted by a particular user-submitter. To learn how to do that, please read How to Approve and Manage Event Submitters.
