Creating your event page with Outix is a super simple process. Simply head to www.outix.com.au/admin and login using the details you provided during the registration process.
Once you've logged in you will be greeted with your Dashboard (see Fig 1.0), this is where you will find live reporting on your current events along with other information.
To create an event click on the Events button on the left hand side (highlighted red in Fig 1.0) and click 'Setup an Event'.
Once you've clicked create an event you will see the screen below
In Figure 1.1 we can see the initial Event Setup screen. From here we are able to start building our event.
Event Title - Is as the name suggests, the title of your event. Appears on Ticket. If no event logo is used will appear on the event page as a heading at top of page.
Event Subtitle - Indicates a second level heading for your event. Appears on Ticket
Event Logo - If an event Logo is used, it will appear in place of the Event Title on the top of the event page.
Venue Name - Indicates the name of the venue. Appears on Ticket
Venue Address - This is a smart field and will scroll through a list of known addresses. Make sure that you use the correct address here as this will affect the GPS reference shown on the event page.
Organiser Name - Place the name of the promoter organising the event within this field. Appears on Ticket.
Age Limit - This sets the age limit requirement for the event. Appears on Ticket.
Event Category - This is for reporting purposes.
Event Date - Sets the Date of the Event and the start time/duration of the event.

Seating Arrangement - For more information see the seating arrangement help page.
Include Social Links? - Selecting this option allows you to post your social media links on the event page to refer people to your current pages.
Social Media Rewards - By selecting this option you are able to set customer rewards to your patrons for liking and sharing your event/facebook page.
Event Background - This allows you to set the background image for your event page.
Flyer Image - This as the name suggests is where you place your event flyer and appears on the right hand side of your event description. Using a youtube link will remove the ability to use a flyer.
YouTube Link - Placing a YouTube link in here will display the linked video on the right hand side of the Event description. Using this feature will disable the 'Flyer Image'
Event Description - This field is where you place your event write up, this will accept text, images and some HTML elements. This is a WYSIWYG editor and will display your text as you see it.
Once you have completed this page click next to be taken to the ticket page (Fig 1.2)
Here you are able to create the ticketing levels for your event. You can create Paid Tickets or Free Tickets at this level. Once you've selected which you would like to create the you'll be able to set the pricing levels, allocations, visibility and sales status (Fig 1.3).
For more information on ticket customisation and setting up bundles have a look at our 'Customising Tickets' help page.
For now we will skip through to the Settings page.
There is a large amount of customisation that is available from this screen, and we will touch on that in more detail in 'Exploring Event Features'. But for now the most important thing from this screen is the 'URL Short Name' seen in Fig 1.4 below highlighted in red. This is where you create a custom URL extension to uniquely identify your event. This is what you will provide to your patrons in order for them to purchase tickets.
Once you have created your custom URL click next to be taken to the 'Event Summary' page (Fig 1.5). Here you are provided with a summary breakdown of your event. Most importantly you are able to 'Make your event Live!' allowing you to start selling tickets!
