In Event Kikfyre all events are displayed as cards inside the dashboard. It makes a lot of things easier when it comes to managing your events. Event cards can be sorted and can be batch processed. Not to mention, they look beautiful when doing so. Featured image is highlighted over the card, and so are the event dates, its venue and booking progress. All this data combine to give you a quick overview about your events right from the mail landing page of Event Kikfyre.
Event Kikfyre gives you complete freedom to create as many events you may require. You can use it to launch a single event, or perhaps build a directory of hundreds of events replete with event types, advance search system and calendering on the front-end (public facing site). The event management area is designed in a way to make handling multiple events easy and intuitive. You can sort and filter events, and hide them as they pass so that your focus is where it matters most.
Those who are familiar with WordPress know the importance of slugs. WordPress plugins can utilize multiple methods to display content on the front-end. Event Kikfyre uses custom taxonomies. It means all events are individual entities inheriting the benefits of WordPress' post structure. Nowhere it is more apparent than the slugs. Each event has its own unique URL which benefits in SEO, bookmarking and assigning events to various menus. In simpler terms, the URL of your event will look something like this:
Chose a type for the event from existing types or create a new one on the fly!
Every events has its own gallery where you can add multiple event related images. The gallery will be displayed on the front-end below event description as thumbnails. Clicking on a thumbnail will expand the image in a lighbox. Users can also browse images within the lighbox using navigational arrows.
Almost every event has performers - be it hosts at a ceremony, speakers in a conference, troupe in a stageshow or actors in a theatre. Event Kikfyre makes it simple to add and manage performers for all your events. Performer image and role with short bio are displayed within the event content below event gallery. Clicking on performer name will open new page with full performer description.
Event timeline is perhaps the most important attribute of an event. It includes start and end date, time span , recurrences and schedules. Event Kikfyre has provision for everything. Recurrences can be after specific intervals or on specific dates. A multi-day event schedule allows hosting events that span multiple days with different schedule for each day.
Cut Off Date attribute allows you to set a last date for booking beyond which Event Kikfyre will no longer accept bookings for a particular event.
Availability feature allows you to set availability (number) of tickets which can be different from the capacity of the venue where the event is being hosted. This allows covering different scenarios where you wish to put a cap on the number of tickets to be sold for each event notwithstanding venue capacity or needing to edit the venue attributes. It is especially handy for multiple events being hosted on same venue with different number of tickets for sale
Every event has an organizer. Well, most of them have anyway. You can use it for RSVP (there are two fields for the organizer) or you can use it to display the main organizer of the event.
Volume discount scheme allows you to offer discount on purchase of specific number of tickets.
Limits are useful for preventing abuse of booking system. Setting booking limit will allow users to only book max. certain number of tickets with each checkout. Of course, you are free to keep this turned off. Turning on cancellations will allow users to send cancellation requests to the admin for approval.
