User Interfaces

  • Dark

To give Event Planners the flexibility to change the look and feel of their Events, there are three different UI experiences to choose from.

  • Tabbed: the traditional checkout UI experience for free and paid Events
  • Simple: a single page UI experience for only free Events
  • Full-Width: an adaptive UI experience for free and paid Events

Getting Started

  1. Navigate to: Object Manager > Event > Fields and Relationships > UI Experience
  2. Add the following values:
  • "Full-Width"
  • "Tabbed"
  • "Simple"

Note: These will populate the UI Experience picklist on the Event object.
