Now, our attention begins to turn to the forthcoming autumn and winter, with Freshers Week set to get underway in just over a fortnight followed by Oktoberfest, Halloween, Bonfire Night, The Qatar FIFA World Cup, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. A busy few months lie ahead. Ensure you have the best knowledge to hand when it comes to listing your events by checking out our FAQ page, teeming with tips, answers and advice.

Beta Promotion Centre: A Recap of some of the latest feature releases
Invite team members to your account – In desperate need of another pair of hands to help promote your events? Good news! You can now invite your colleagues to your account and permit them to manage certain aspects of your events or account.
Need to add your finance team so they can view your remittance reports, but don’t want them messing with your event/ticketing setup? Or have a junior member of staff you’d like to help with listing events, but want to keep them away from the bank details? All of this is now possible.
Simply go to your account settings by selecting the account icon in the top right-hand corner of the dashboard screen, click on ‘Manage or invite users’, add in the names and email addresses of your teammates and an invitation will be sent.
Please note – All users will need to be using the Beta Promotion Centre to take advantage of this feature.

Improved Remittance Reports – We’ve recently improved our Remittance reports to give a full in-depth breakdown of your overall, unpaid and paid remittances. We’ve also fixed a bug where the ‘Cleared for payment’ figure wasn’t displaying correctly. There’s now more information on funds which are being held due to any applicable reserve on your account.
We realise financial reporting is very important and that it can be complex. We’ll be adding more information to these reports soon, so keep your eyes peeled for further updates. Or see below to find out how to contact us with any improvements you’d like to see!
To view the Remittance reports, head to (Finance > Remittance) within the Beta Promotion Centre.
