This section allows you to pick a profile or group as an organizer. If you choose a group, you can pick one or more contact(s) among the group.

Event metadata

When you create an event, you have the possibility to add metadata. This allows you to specify information that will be more visible as it appears in the right hand column of the event (below the website field).

This metadata field is repeatable so that you can highlight different information. You can specify accessibility information about your event (whether the event is wheelchair accessible or whether the event is interpreted in sign language), or specify an account on the fediverse to follow for event updates, or even enter a live stream URL (PeerTube/YouTube/Twitch).

If the type of information you want to add does not appear in our suggestions, you can create it directly. To do this, simply click on the "Add new..." button. A window will appear in which you can indicate the title of the element you wish to add and its value (the information itself).
