When you create an event in the b2match system, it is in Demo mode by default. This mode is changed automatically to Draft and the organiser can change this status to Publish.
- Demo - your event is in demonstration mode, as you are a potential customer. If you were already in contact with our Sales Team and your event is not in the Draft mode yet, please contact our Sales representatives. They will make the required change.
- Draft - your event is only visible to the invited organisers and it is not searchable on the Internet. Therefore the registration of the participants is not possible.
When in draft mode, the website will be only visible for the organisers of the event, listed in the organiser's tool under Organisers, by clicking on Go to the Event Website.
The message displayed to the public will be This page is currently under construction. Please come back later.
- Published - your event is accessible to the public and searchable on the Internet. The advertisement of your event and the participant registration can begin.
To sum up, here are the main features for the event status:
|Event status||Who can change the event status?||Event visibility on the Internet|
|Draft||the event owner||no||
|Published||the event owner||yes||
|Archived||done automatically 2 years after the event took place||no||
How to Publish the Website
The event owner is able to change from Draft status to Published (and the other way around) by choosing the option at the top of the organiser's page, next to the event's title.
