Creating a Liberalist Event

Creating events within Liberalist allows you to keep all of your team’s events in one place and keep everything organized. Through the events tool you can create multiple shifts for events, set event roles such as Attendee and Volunteer, and monitor the turnout for your event.

Knowing how many people are attending an event can help your team determine how many volunteers may be needed, and help determine how to best allocate other resources. Having attendees in the system also makes confirmation and thank you calls easier!
