Public Event with Open Signup #

When you set your event’s privacy to the public with open sign-up, attendees can sign up directly for the event.

If your event requires tickets, attendees who sign up will need to purchase a ticket before they can add sessions to their personal schedules.


Public Event with Invite-Only Login #

If you want to manually invite each person and prevent attendees from creating their own accounts, set your event to “Public event with invite-only login.”

If you’re using Eventbrite for registration, you should also check this box to prevent attendees without tickets from logging in.
Invite Only

Private Event with Invite-Only Login #

By default, your schedule and directory are visible online and to search engines. You can even see public events under Upcoming Events in the Sched Event Directory. If you want only specific people you invite to view the schedule and details, check the box “Private event with invite-only login.”


Private Event with Password Wall #

You can require a password to view your Sched event page. This will protect your schedule so it will only be accessible by new people that have the password. People can view the schedule after entering the event password to unlock your Sched event page:

Make video streams accessible to session attendees only #

For Boost and Launch Plan customers, you have even more control over access to your event’s video stream content. Use this setting to restrict video stream access to session attendees only. Go to Settings => Attendance.
