How to make your Confetti event site a little bit more private

alt We have added a few new features lately that makes it possible to make your Confetti event site a little bit more private. This blog post will tell you a little bit of what’s possible.

The default setup when you create a Confetti event site is that your site can be seen by anyone, this means that it can be found in search engines and that everyone who finds your site can register for your event.

If you want to make your Confetti event site a little bit more private you have a few options and it’s done in two steps. The first step is deciding on who can find and see your site and the second step is deciding on who you want to be able to register for your event. We’ll start with the first step - deciding on who can find and access your site.

Step 1 - Who can find and access your Confetti event site

You can configure the privacy settings for your event in the admin by clicking on “Settings” in the menu and then clicking “Setup”. On the top of the site you’ll find the section “Who can see this event?” and you’ll be handed three options:

  • Everyone
  • Invitation only
  • Password

Everyone
By choosing “Everyone” your site will, as mentioned above, be visible to anyone.

Invitation only
By choosing “Invitation only” no one will be able to access your site except the ones you’ve specifically have given access. How you give people access to your site is by sending email invitations out via Confetti. When a person opens up your email invite and clicks the link in the email the person will be able to access and see your site. Please note that “Invitation only” only works with free events.

Password
By choosing “Password” you’re password protecting your site. All you need to do is choose a password for your event and share it with the ones you want to have access. When entering the URL they’ll get prompted to enter the password. If you don’t have the password you won’t be able to access the site.

Hide in search engines
No matter of which option you decide on from the three mentioned above, you can always choose to hide your Confetti event site in search engines. This also works with an event that is visible to “Everyone”

Step 2 - Who can attend your event

You can decide on who’ll be able to register for your event at the same place as where you decided on the visibility for your site. It’s in the admin, you simply need to click on “Settings” in the menu and then click “Setup”. On the top of the site you’ll find the section “Who can see this event?” and just under it you’ll find the section that we’re looking for: “Who can attend this event?” and you’ll be handed the same three options as above.

  • Everyone
  • Invitation only
  • Password

This works pretty much the same as above.

Everyone
By choosing “Everyone” anyone who accesses your site will be able to register for your event.

Invitation only
By choosing “Invitation only” no one will be able to register for your event except for the ones you’ve specifically have given access. How you give people access to register for your event is by sending out email invitations out via Confetti. When a person opens up your email invite and clicks the link in the email the person will be able to register for your event. Clicking the link in the email will be the only way for someone to register for your event if you choose this option. Again, please note that “Invitation only” only works with free events.

Password
By choosing “Password” you’re password protecting your signup button. All you need to do is choose a password and share it with the ones you want to be able to register for your event. When clicking the RSVP button on your site they’ll get prompted to enter the password to be able to sign up. If you don’t have the password you won’t be able to register.
