General Settings
When any event is created in Bettercast there is a set of decisions that need to be made about your features as well as adding the basic event information.
When you set up the event, you can create it either as an agency or production team where you will create multiple events for other businesses under your management or create the account as the event itself.
No matter what you set it up as, you can create multiple events in your account.

To prepare to set the up, you will need to define your:

  • Event title
  • Event slogan
  • Event description
    • A short paragraph on the core USP of your event
  • Custom domain:
    • This can be eg: MyEvent.bettercast.io however once your event is created this can not be changed
  • Time zone the event will take place in
    • Your guests will see your schedule in their time zone
  • Dates of your event
  • Start and finish times of each day
  • Required attendee agreements that you need
    • Every event attendee has to agree to the Bettercast T/C however you may have your own agreements that users need to make before they access your event
  • URL you have for the attendees to go to, to read the agreement details
  • Will tickets be unlimited or one ticket per user
  • Do you want to give access to your event before the start date or keep them on the landing page.
These settings are the same no matter what event type you choose.
