What are Events?

The Event Module allows you to create and send Event Invitations to employees across your business. Unlike some traditional platforms used to send meeting invites, Poppulo does not limit the number of people you can invite.

Advanced Events use templates and provide RSVP options and reporting, and allows you to send targeted Follow-ups to invitees based on their response (for instance, sending reminders to those who haven't opened the original invite). 

Simple Events allows you to send an Event invite directly to the recipients inbox and calendar without the use of a Poppulo Templates.

To Create an Advanced Event Invitation: 


  1. From the Overview page, click Create New and choose Event.

    Note: The Online Event checkbox lets you add a Presenter name and a URL; an online event does not need physical location details and is restricted to a single session. If you have multiple online sessions, continue without using the Online Event option, and add your URL to the Location field.

    Finally, in Basic Details, you can set a Capacity for your event and add additional sessions.

Basic Details

In Basic Details you can enter your Event Name, the physical Location details for an event and the time & date of your event. If you have check Online Event you will see options to add online details opposed to physical details. Online events only allow for a single Session whereas you can add sessions for other Events. This provides your invitees with the option to choose the location or date that best suits them. Invitees will only be able to select one event to attend.

​​​​​​RSVP & Registration

In RSVP & registration you can choose if you Require a Response from Invitees and if you want to Add a Registration Form. You can also define what the Accept and Decline buttons on the invite read and even choose to remove the Decline button to only collect accepted invitations from your invitees. Finally you can decide if you'd like your invitation to have an Expiry Date, this ensures responses to the Event don't come back after a certain date.

When you choose to Add a Registration Form, it will be included when you edit the event. You can also Add or Edit an Event Registration Form once you finish creating the Event. Events with a Registration have 2 Privacy settings:
  • Private Event - Only employees who receive the invitation can register.
  • Public Event - Anyone can register for the Event and you can Add the Event to your Intranet or share the link.

Note: The Privacy settings can be changed at any time before your live send. 

In Planning, you can set you planned send details for the Event. This will not send your Event but it will give the other users visibility of when and to who you plan to send, other users will see this in the calendar. Simply add a Planned Send Date, the group of employees you wish to send to (Tag, Saved Search or Everybody) and finally your Planned Subject Line

Note: All of these settings can be changed when you send your event. If "Everybody" does not appear as an option, it may be turned off in your Sub Account by your Enterprise Admin.
